    This actually was very easy to use. My friend and I are both 18 and arrived in Incheon at 11 pm so we wanted a driver to pick us up as opposed to taking a late bus/train. As soon as we exited the main terminal our driver was standing with my name on a sign. The drive was quick and there was hardly any traffic probably because of the time it was. Our driver made sure that we arrived at the right place before leaving us there. Returning to the airport after our trip we used the AREX since it was during the day. I would definitely use black link again if we arrived at night or had a lot of luggage with us.

    This was our first time in Korea and I was glad I used Blacklink as the car service. We had Mr. Kim to pick us up from the ICN airport. He was friendly and pointed out sites during our trip to the hotel. He gave recommendations to restaurants and tips for eatery and they were great. The next time we are in Korea, we will definitely use Blacklink again.

    Mr. Lee our driver was friendly and patient. We were a little delayed in getting through customs and then claiming luggage. He waited while I also picked up a wifi egg which due to confusing directions from the company took a while. Despite not speaking English he was friendly and drove us to our hotel quickly. We also booked him for the return to the airport 5 days later.

gyeongbokgung palace (station)

markerGyeongbokgung

Gyeongbokgung was built three years after the Joseon dynasty was founded and it served as its main palace. With Mount Bugak as a backdrop and the Street of Six Ministries (today's Sejongno) outside Gwanghwamun Gate, the main entrance to the palace, Gyeongbokgung was situated in the heart of the Korean capital city. It was steadily expanded before being reduced to ashes during the Japanese invasion of 1592. For the next 273 years the palace grounds were left derelict until being rebuilt in 1867 under the leadership of Regent Heungseon Daewongun. The restoration was completed on a grand scale, with 330 buildings crowded together in a labyrinthine configuration. Within the palace walls were the Outer Court (oejeon), offices for the king and state officials, and the Inner Court (naejeon), which included living quarters for the royal family as well as gardens for leisure. Within its extensive precincts were other palaces, large and small, including Junggung (the Queen`s residence) and Donggung (the Crown prince’s residence). Due to its status as the symbol of national sovereignty, Gyeongbokgung was demolished during the Japanese occupation of the early 20th century. In 1911, ownership of land at the palace was transferred to the Japanese Governor-General. In 1915, on the pretext of holding an exhibition, more than 90% of the buildings were torn down. Following the exhibition the Japanese leveled whatever still remained and built their colonial headquarters, the Government-General Building (1916-26), on the site. Main Palace of Gyeongbokgung Palace Restoration efforts have been ongoing since 1990. The Government-General Building was removed in 1996 and Heungnyemun Gate (2001) and Gwanghwamun Gate (2006-2010) were reconstructed in their original locations and forms. Reconstructions of the Inner Court and Crown Prince’s residence have also been complex.
