I once heard there was a mogyoktang at Incheon International Airport. Can anyone confirm this? Anyone been? How much is it?

I think it's actually inside the departure terminal, past security and immigration, so you can't get to it unless you are leaving on a trip. I haven't looked around out in the main terminal on the departure level.

Maybe someone else has more info.

Cheers

I was at the airport last week at the arrival terminal and saw a sign for it. It should be accessable to anyone. I am pretty sure it is open 24 hours. I am not sure of the price, but it must be under 10,000 won. I am leaving Sunday; maybe I'll try it out.

It's in the basement, land side (i.e. you don't need to go through security/passport control or anything) on the side of the airport where domestic flights leave from.
8,000 won, men only, 24 hours.

It is probably more for men only because more men travel on business. Women tend to bathe as a social occasion. Men more often go to ease a hangover or have a place to sleep.

Still nothing, sorry!
If it's any consolation it's the worst sauna I've been to in Korea.

It would be nice to have something to do if I got to the airport early...or when a flight is delayed 20+ hours...and great to get on the plane squeaky-clean!

Where are the good restaurants? I could only find BK and Korean cafereria crap. I certainly nope not to need an optician or to do laundry at the airport...but next time I am stuck at the airport, I will look for your "little office." Very Happy
