Incheon Airport TB Hotel

Incheon International Airport is located 70 km (43 mi) west of Seoul, the capital and largest city of South Korea. The Airport is the main hub for Korean Air, Asiana Airlines and Polar Air Cargo and is currently Asia's eighth busiest airport in terms of passengers, the world's fifth busiest airport in terms of cargo and freight, and the world's eleventh busiest airport in terms of international passengers in 2006. This airport has been consecutively rated as the best airport in the world since 2005. Since today, it has one new facility - a TB/GC hotel nearby.

The purpose of this cache, besides being a traditional cache people find, is to allow people to leave their TBs/GCs on this crossroad and send them to the world. It is regular-size cache hidden in a distance reachable in couple of minutes by shuttle bus and walk or some 30-40 minutes of a quick walk.  The quickest  way to arrive to the cache from the airport is to take a free shuttle bus from the departure hall (about 10 mins) get off at the Airport Administration Building and walk towards the cache following GPS signal. If you have more time and want to stretch your legs after the long flight a bit, it will be a 30-40 minutes walk to the cache. Go straight from the terminal, passing by the Airport Express Station, a huge long-term parking lot and after you cross the road by a bridge just follow your GPS signal.

When approached from Korea, you can either come by Airport Bus and then simply follow the advice for approaching the cache from the airport or you can come by car. In such a case you can either use a parking lot of a kindergarten nearby or parking lot of the Airport Admin. Building (there is some parking fee).

Do not forget to visit the other caches nearby: GC1C03C and GC1C3YF.

There is a rule regarding the TBs & GCs:

When you retrieve a trackable (TB, Geocoin) from the cache insert at least the same number of trackables. If you do not intend to leave a trackable just "discover" them. There is an exception to this rule. You can retrieve the trackable (and not drop one) if you are going to take it at least 1000 km / 600 mi away. I believe the purpose of these rules is obvious. If not send me an email.

Note: I intended to have the cache nearer to the Terminal building in order to allow geocachers to run out from the Terminal to log it even if they do not stay in Korea. The original position did not pass, so this is the closest possible.
