Incheon Aiport of South Korea A Dating Hot Spot

There's nothing like rainy skies and muggy weather to put a damper on plans couples make to spend a pleasant day outdoors. But there's no need to fret because Incheon International Airport offers a wide range of indoor activities. The sprawling airport complex also hosts various performances all year round free of charge.

The most convenient way to get to the nation's main air gateway is to hop on the airport express. It takes 55 minutes to get there from Seoul Station and costs just W3,950 (US$1=W1,127).

Sweeping views of the Han River and West Sea await passengers as the train passes by Digital Media City, Gimpo International Airport, Geomam and Unseo stations along the way. The vast mud flats on the west coast are especially atmospheric during the rainy season.

A multiplex theater sits in front of the Incheon International Airport stop. Buy a movie ticket first and spend some time looking around if you have time to kill.

At the corner of the ticket booth, handprints of celebrities are displayed along with posters of former box office hits.

Next to the theater is a skating rink. It costs W4,000 for adults, W3,000 for teenagers and W2,000 for children to rent a pair of skates for an hour.

The rink is open all year round as it's made of polyethylene, which is more slippery than ice but does not get you wet if you fall.

The airport also features musical performances 365 days a year on the first floor of its passenger terminal, with a schedule that changes each month.

Additionally, on the fourth floor of the same terminal is a Korean-style pavilion where visitors can relax with a cup of coffee or tea as they watch planes take off and land.
