Is South Korea calling? Start planning your holiday in Seoul with cheap flights to Incheon Airport (ICN), the most common entry point for travellers from the UK. Take off onboard Finnair, KLM, Air France, Aeroflot, Emirates, among others from London and Edinburgh.
If you're after the cheapest flights to Seoul, it's a good idea to book your trip at least 6 months in a advance. November to April is the best time of the year to visit, with pleasant continental weather. The summers can be unbearably humid in Seoul with the monsoon in June and July.
Flights to Seoul take around 13 hours from London with stopovers.
Seoul is one of Asia's most exciting cities, steeped in cutting edge culture, digital technology, historic monuments and arguably the best street food around. Popular Korean culture has taken the world by storm and shows no signs of letting up!
Gyeongbok-gung: This is Seoul's grandest palace from the Joseon Dynasty and was the country's seat of power until it was ransacked by Japanese invaders in 1592. Today the palace has been restored and is a must-visit for any first-timer in Seoul.
