What you’ll do

Being so close to a university, you can imagine that whether it be day or night, Hongdae hums!

You’ll join one of our Seoul hosts as they show you this exciting pocket of Seoul, filled with explosive street art, quirky flea markets and street performers aplenty!

You never know when a sneaky pop-up market will literally pop up on the pavement in front of you - on nothing more than a blanket laid on the ground, then disappear just as quickly. The student-friendly prices are an obvious win, so keep your eyes peeled for hand-made crafts and jewelry.

Your host will lead you to themed cafes (a major attraction in these parts) as well as tiny sidewalk cafes, serving up delicious street food and soju (a vodka-like drink).

Renowned for its nightlife, you might choose to visit Hongdae in evening, in which case your host will take you to their favourite karaoke bar, where you can sing your heart out to some old-school tunes, or alternatively, hit up an underground club where you can show off your moves (after a few rounds, called cha, no doubt). 

From silly antics at the Trick Eye Museum to comedy shows at the NANTA Theatre, we’ll give you a thousand reasons to love Hondae!
