If you are waving over a taxi, do not wave frantically. Put your hand out, face forward and wave your hand. Taxis are generally inexpensive. Most taxi drivers do not speak English, so it is recommended you show the destination name in Korean.
The standard fare for a regular taxi starts at 2,800- 3000 won for the first two kilometers, and then 100 won for each 143m, or every 34 seconds if the taxi is going under 15 kph. Fares increase 20% between midnight and 4 a.m.
Deluxe “mobeom” taxis charge 4,500 won for the first 3km and then 200 won for each 160m or 38 seconds.
