Our Jamsil branch is frequently visited by international patients; opened in April last year, it has clean and high quality facilities, and is at a convenient location for local expats around the area as well as tourists, since it's on subway line 2, one of the busiest in Seoul. However, a lot of patients still have trouble finding the clinic, since the entrance and sign can be a bit inconspicuous and hard to spot. Which is why in today's post, I am going to explain everything you need to know about finding our clinic. If it is your first time visiting our Jamsil branch, give this post a quick read-through and you will be able to navigate much more easily.
First of all, here is the address of our Jamsil branch, both in English and Korean:
Seoul, Songpa-gu, Jamsil-dong 184-21 9th Floor
서울 송파구 잠실동 184-21
Use it to locate on Google maps or whichever map you prefer, to spot our clinic. Or just hand this address to the taxi driver.
1. TAKING THE SUBWAY
We are located at Jamsil Saenae (잠실새내) Station, exit 4. Note that this is NOT Jamsil (잠실) Station. This is what happens if you misunderstand the station name:
Once you walk out of exit 4, this is what you should see. Look for the Subway and Baskin Robbins.
From exit 4, walk straight ahead for about 2 minutes. You'll pass by familiar stores (if you've been in Korea for a bit) such as Paris Baguette, Olive Young, and a bunch of Korean cosmetic brands. Walk until you see KEB bank. Don't get confused again: it's KEB bank, not KB. This is what the bank looks like, with our clinic entrance on the left:
Take the elevator on the left, up to the 9th floor.
2. COMING BY TAXI
Taking the taxi is obviously a lot simpler, because all you need to do is provide the driver with the address. HOWEVER, for some reason, when most drivers use GPS to drive to the provided address, they drop you off at the rear side of the building, leaving many patients confused and lost. When you're coming by taxi, the trick is to spot the KEB bank as usual, then Lotteria (fast food restaurant), since you'll need to make your way to the front of the building by going around Lotteria.
Once you turn the corner at Lotteria you will be able to spot the KEB bank front entrance, and the entrance to our clinic as well.
I hope this helps, and that now you will be able to found our clinic without any difficulty. And er... I just read through the post I just wrote, to proofread, and it seems like I'm ranting. But I promise, I'm not annoyed or anything, I just want to be very clear on the instructions so you guys won't go through any trouble. Hehe. Good luck! :-)
