Waiting between flights is quite common in the travelling industry. Now it depends on your preference or creativity to do while waiting. When you are travelling to Korea and you have to wait at Incheon Airport, there is no need to worry. The airport has tons of useful and fun facilities that will help you enjoy your time. Even when you don’t have to go out, you can still have a memorable holiday experience – while waiting at the airport!
1. Sauna and Spa
Travelling can be exhausting, right? But with spa and sauna, you can relax and enjoy the beauty treatment. At Spa on Air, there are several services that you can enjoy – complete with the different price ranges. If you just want to take a shower and make use of the available facilities, it costs you 7,000 won for 3 hours. You will need to spend 100,000 won for 60 minutes of full body massage. The price is also applicable if you want to take a shower and sauna – extending to 4 hours. If you want to enjoy 80 minutes of massage, you will have to spend 120,000 won. If you want to enjoy the facilities for 12 hours, it costs you 22,000 won. Spa on Air is located in Terminal 1, and you can enjoy the snack bar, showers, sauna, and private sleeping rooms. It is also open 24 hours.
2. Shower Rooms
These rooms are available in Terminal 1 and also 2. If you are a transit traveller, the rooms are available for free. But if you aren’t, you can still make use of the shower rooms for 3,000 won – it already includes the shower kit. The operating hours started from 7 AM to around 9 PM. However, in Terminal 2, the operating hour started from 6 AM.
3. Darakhyu or Capsule Hotel
If you want to just close your eyes and stretch your back, the capsule hotel would be the perfect option. Darakhyu is found at both Terminal 1 and 2. In Terminal 1, the single room is available with shower but the shower won’t be available in Terminal 2. For a day use from 6 AM to 8 PM, it costs from 23,100 to 36,000 won. For overnight use from 8 PM to 6 AM, it costs from 56,000 to 77,000 won. If you extend the hour, it is going to cost you 4,000 won per hour.
4. Entertainment Spot
You can enjoy the golf club, ice skate rink, or casino while spending the time. The golf club isn’t technically inside the airport but it is a part of the facilities, anyway. Just use the free shuttle ride that takes 5 minutes to the spot. The cost for a person during the weekday is 30,000 won for a 9-hole game. If you want an 18-hole game, it is 60,000 won. During holidays and weekends, the price starts at 48,000 for the 9-hole and 96,000 won for the 18-hole. Driving range starts at 2,000 won for half an hour during the weekday – it is 6,000 won during the weekend.
If you want to play in the casino, head to Hyatt Regency Hotel. The Paradise Golden Gate Casino is inside the hotel. You only need to use the shuttle bus and depart at the second stop. The casino opens every day, basically 24/7 and it has 50 different roulette, slot machines, and also Caribbean poker. If you prefer the ice skating, there is a rink right inside the airport. It is perfect for families, kids, couples, or anyone wanting to have fun. The rink is open from 10 AM to 8 PM every day. For 5,000 won, you can get the helmet, gloves, and skates.
It’s not a bad idea, after all, to wait at airports – not if the airport is so sophisticated and fun like the Incheon. Planning your next trip to Korea? Don’t forget to plan early and reserve your flights with Airpaz.
