Gina:It is convenient to travel in Seoul, because the subway system has 18 different lines and over 500 stations, which covers most parts of the city. Also, it is possible to transfer from the bus to the subway for free a maximum of five times so you don’t end up spending a lot on transportation.

I actually prefer travelling by car, but given the chance, I'd love to go on the subway, because I haven't travelled by the subway yet, even in my own country :flushed::open_mouth:
