Seoul is South Korea’s busy and vibrant capital city, which features a lot to offer in terms of culture, history, and nightlife. Gwanak is a district in the south side of the city, which is the home of the Seoul National University as well as many restaurants and stores. Visitors will enjoy looking for souvenirs and other unique items at the Renaissance Shopping Mall, or they may want to learn about Korea’s history by touring the Horim Museum. The area is also known for its lovely natural beauty, which can be experienced by taking a stroll through Boramae Park.

  • A trip to Seoul isn’t complete without taking a hike up to Mount Gwanak, which is a 632-metre-high mountain offering scenic hiking trails that are dotted with Buddhist temples and spectacular views of the city from its peak.
  • Enjoy a traditional Korean meal of stir-fried sundae bokkeum by visiting the Original Traditional Sundae Town, located on Sillim-ro-59-gil.
  • Tour the Seoul Museum of Art to discover the expression of Korean artists, a facility that includes three floors of impressive works as well as an outdoor statue garden

It is fairly simple to both access the Gwanak district and get around the area. The Seoul Metro operates two rapid transit lines, which stop there. The Green Line travels in a circle and can take passengers to Sillim station, not to mention four additional stops in this part of the city. Public buses are also available for accessing this part of the city—namely the blue-coloured transit vehicles, or routes numbers 501, 506, 651, and 750. Alternately, green-coloured buses with route numbers 5XXX or X5XX also travel there. Visitors may also comfortably traverse the area on foot or hail widely abundant taxis.
