Seoul in South Korea is said to be 962 Kilometers east-southeast from Beijing in China. This also works out as 598 Miles or 519 Nautical Miles.

When using air travel to fly from Beijing to Seoul, return tickets are approximately $500. Without any stops the journey takes approximately 2 hours, depending on conditions on the day and plane being used. However, if stops are included within the trip, it can take anywhere between 5 and 10 hours.

Other methods of travel can include ferry and train. Ferry lines, such as the Jincheon ferry, travel between Beijing and Seoul. Although this trip takes approximately 26 hours, many people still highly recommend it due to it being a very enjoyable journey.
