Our flight was 1640H and we planned to check out at 1200H so that we could take the airport limousine bus to Incheon International Airport. It was only 10,000won per adult and the pick-up point was a mere 1-minute walk from our hotel.
Given that we had to check out by 12pm, we headed out at 10am for brunch at Holly’s Coffee.
This was us on the bus
Some friends would wonder why we did not opted for taxi to go to the airport. Well, a regular taxi might not have sufficient boot space to house our 29″ and 32″ luggage as well as a stroller. A bigger taxi would cost US$100, so taking the airport limousine bus sounded like a good option to me.

We had lunch after getting the custom stamp for our purchases and checking in our luggage. We had a lot of time to shop, to collect our tax refunds in cash and to shop more. I ended up buying a pair of Issey Miyaki perfume because it was only US$60 per bottle! Mr H grabbed a pair too. His was around US$50.
Waiting for boarding
During the flight, we celebrated our friend’s child’s first year old birthday. We did not get to sing the birthday song but we got to enjoy the complimentary birthday cake prepared by SQ.
Z had immense entertainment while we endured the long wait for luggages. This pretty much summed up our holiday to Korea. While Z was a handful, it was still a great trip.
