Best things to do and see in South Korea

Flights to South Korea from Australia vary in length, with the main factors being your departure city, the number of stops you make along the way, and the duration of those stops. The most common points of departure in Australia are Sydney (SYD), Melbourne (MEL), and Brisbane (BNE). Meanwhile, flights to South Korea generally arrive at Incheon International Airport (ICN) in the capital of Seoul. From Sydney to Seoul, you can expect an average flight time of 10h and 30min if you take a non-stop flight with an airline like Asiana or around 18 to 25h if you select a flight with a stop along the way. From Melbourne and Brisbane, the average flight times tend to be around 13 to 25h, with a stop along the way in cities like Sydney, Singapore (SIN), Taipei (TPE), or Bangkok (BKK).

Non-stop flights from Australia to South Korea are available for passengers departing from Sydney Airport, with Seoul as the final destination. Passengers departing from Brisbane, Melbourne, and other cities around Australia can find plenty of great deals with just one stop along the way. For example, with a quick stop in Hong Kong (HKG), passengers departing from Brisbane can reach Seoul in just over 14h. This is only a fewh longer than the direct flight for 10h 30min with Asiana Airlines. From Melbourne, passengers can reach South Korea in a similar time frame by selecting airfares with China Airlines or Cathay Pacific. Flights with China Airlines include a brief stop in Taipei, while flights with Cathay Pacific come with a short stopover in Hong Kong.

Taxis, trains, buses, rideshare providers, and car hire are your main transport options in South Korea. Those just planning to stick to Seoul may prefer to use public transport options. Taxis and rideshares offer a convenient way to move around the city. Alternatively, the Metropolitan Subway features 22 lines that can get you anywhere you wish to go in the city. You may wish to start by catching the AREX train from Incheon Airport into the city. Both terminals of the airport have a train station, and they can be found by following the overhead signs from the baggage claim area. For travelling further afield to cities like Busan (PUS), Daejeon (CJJ), and Gwangju (KWJ), the KTX bullet trains are a fast and easy option, with five lines connecting all the major cities in South Korea. The KTX bullet trains offer a fast and comfortable ride. Alternatively, airlines like Korean Air and Asiana Airlines offer affordable domestic flights between major cities like Seoul, Jeju (CJU), Yeosu (RSU), Busan, Gwangju, and more. Though flights are generally the quickest option in terms of transit time, you must factor in the early arrival time and check-in procedures. This means that for nearby cities like Busan and Ulsan, for example, it may be quicker to take the train than a flight.

Australian citizens need a passport valid for at least six months from the date they travel to South Korea. At least one blank visa page is also required. Transits of up to 24h are permitted without a visa. However, as of 2021, Australian travellers may no longer use the old visa on arrival program for longer stays. Instead, you must apply for a K-ETA, which can be done online via an electronic form. The criteria for approval and the application form can be found on the South Korean embassy website.
