Well, I'll be moving to Bundang (Sunae) next month and was wondering what the damage will be for late night taxi rides from different parts of Seoul.

4-5 times a month, I'll be hanging out late in Gangnam, Itaewon, Hongdae, Dongdaemun, etc.

Can anyone give a solid price range of what the cab fare would come out to from these places?

Thanks!

Since that is an inter-city fare and sounds like you'd want it around the change over time, it'll have to be a contract hire. Best to ring up taxi companies in the departure area. I doubt any taxi driver from destination area (Bundang) would come all the way Seoul to pick up an iffy fare.

30 to 50k... make your best deal or wait till 5 and catch the bus.

Yep, that's about what I've paid over the past few years. Most taxi drivers start at 50k and you'll have to work your way down. 30k is a little uncommon, and 40k seems to be the norm from Hongdae and Itaewon. Gangnam can be all over the board.

Surprisingly, I've had a few drivers prefer to do the meter this past year or so, which still comes out to something in the high thirties to low forties.

The prices you guys are quoting is kinda high, unless maybe you're talking about the total amount of money per month , 4-5 times from those areas. But then it's too low.

From Itaewon to Bundang, it's from 20,000 to 25,000 won. Maybe slightly higher but never 30,000.
