Holidaymakers to South Korea’s hustle-bustle city of Seoul hoping for a well-rounded and exciting taste of the city’s spirit should visit the one-and-only district of Gangnam. Punctuated with its inclusion of the incredible Kimchi Field Museum, Gangnam famously hosts some of Seoul’s most vibrant nightlife, first-class shopping, and inimitable eateries—which says a lot, given this city’s world-class reputation as the home for colourful thoroughfares. Slip on your dress or suit jacket: Gangnam is a business district whose upscale diners, cafes, and even nightclubs admonish “business casual.” Featuring sunny streets and shopping to keep visitors young and old entertained during the day, as well as casinos, dancing, and dining once the moon is up, Gangnam is a piece of Seoul’s excitement unlike any other.
- Shop till you drop at the Coex Mall, the largest shopping complex of its kind in Seoul.
- Join a two-hour tour or an overnight exploration of the Bongeunsa Temple, one of the most humbling and impressive attractions in the city.
- Explore the Seonjenongneung Tombs, where former kings and queens are buried along beautiful landscapes studded with statuary.
International or domestic travellers alike can arrive to Seoul via the Incheon Airport and take available shuttle, taxi, bus, or metro services to their final destination. Frequenting visitors to Seoul and locals alike agree the metro system offers most efficient transport throughout this bustling metropolis as well as Gangnam in particular, as this district famously hosts several businesses as well as returning holidaymakers. The purchase of a T-money smart card for frequent metro transportation is recommended. Gangnam can be accessed via metro lines 2, 3, and 7, as well as the Bundang Line and the Sin Bundang Line.
