As our flight home is in the evening, we did some last minute shopping at Myeongdong and Lotte Departmental Store near the Metro Hotel.
We have lunch at one of the Korean restaurants located in the upper floors within the Lotte Department Store. Interesting hotpot meal with food cooked at our table.

After lunch, it was time to check-out and head for the airport. There are many ways to get to the Incheon International Airport from Seoul. We had taken the AREX to Seoul Station when we arrived. This time round, the most convenient transport for us from the Metro Hotel in Myeongdong area to the airport is via the Airport Limousine Bus. There are a few bus operators.
We took the #6015 bus from a bus stop along the Namdaemun-ro, outside the Ibis Myeongdong Hotel. Fare was 10,000 KRW per person and the journey takes about 80 to 90 minutes.
Alternatively, we could have taken the KAL Limousine bus from the Lotte Hotel across the road but that would mean more lugging of luggage up and down the underpass. The journey is about 90 minutes and is more expensive at 15,000 KWR per person.
Seoul Incheon Airport is nice and offers some good last minute shopping too. Plus some cultural entertainment.

Then it is home sweet home.
