I like the architecture and how central and well connected it is. The station is clean and relatively easy for travellers to find their way. Buses, taxi stands, metro, trains in a clean station. Good station

Seoul train station is really clean and not that huge so anyone can find the train very easily but the elevator is not working sometimes that makes you difficult to carry your bag pack anyway there is easy access to get in and out.

Old train station revamped into a place for exhibitions. I'm glad they kept the exterior look of it. Must be grand in the old days.

Nice European style building with lots of shops and huge Lotte outlets. Great eateries too. This is the main station where you can take a direct train to Incheon airport.

There was a Van Gogh art exhibition in January. I passed by Seoul Station and found it amazing with people lining up to get in the exhibits.

Stumbled on the Typojanchi 2015 at the old Seoul Station building. Very nice art installation showcasing typography, culture and paper.

Very big and modern station. Staff were helpful and it was very easy to navigate around the place once we arrived from busan.
