You’ll explore Hongdae, one of Seoul’s most vibrant areas that are filled to the brim with quirky stores, live music venues, cheap eats - it’s the city’s student hub, after all - and plenty of visual art to get your creative juices flowing. Speaking of juices, your host could take you to an indie joint like The Henz Club, where you can sip on soju liquor with the who’s who of Hongdae, or you could opt for some traditional tea at Thanks Nature Cafe, with a couple of sheep to keep you company - did we not mention Hongdae is known for its themed cafes? You could catch an impromptu street performance along Eoulmadag Street, but you might end up spending all your time enjoying the nostalgia of arcade gaming at Zzang Games instead.
Leave the flurry of finance behind and enter a very different quarter of Seoul, one where creativity and quirkiness are the only qualities that count. Since the ’90s, this burgeoning suburb has been the heart of art in the city, fed by a constant stream of art students and fuelled by cheap rent, indie music, and vintage shopping. Follow your host and explore street art-lined alleyways, and discover live music venues and themed cafes where you can mingle with the local cool kids. Catch musicians jamming out on a street corner, or sip on some tea at a themed cafe, one of the area’s popular draws. You could even shop till you drop at Hongdae’s markets or in any of the vintage boutiques that add flavor to this unique slice of the city!
