Songpa is located on the eastern side of Seoul, and whilst the nearby glamorous neighbour, Gangnam, often overshadows it, this cosmopolitan district famously offers budget-friendly shopping and entertainment options that make it one of this massive city’s best-kept holidaymaker secrets. The young and hip Garden5 shopping centre features hundreds of one-of-a-kind shops selling high-class fashion brands, home goods, and authentic native art, a consumer hotspot unlike any other on earth. Stop by Jamsil Sports Complex to enjoy some of the country’s most exciting baseball games as well as compelling musical acts that regularly play at this inimitable facility. Perhaps Songpa’s most unique attraction, Gangnam, popularly entertains thousands of visiting holidaymakers year after year, with its glitzy casinos, additional upscale shopping, and delicious fine eateries.
- Shop, enjoy amusement park rides and entertainment, and explore Korean cultural exhibits at Lotte World, a complex that includes an indoor theme park, ice rink, museum, theatre, and Seoul’s famous Lotte Department Store.
- Explore breathtaking modern art pieces including paintings and sculptures created by artists from Korea and all over the globe at the Soma Art Museum in Olympic Park.
- Buy fresh produce, seafood, and meats straight from Songpa farmers and anglers at Garak Market, one of Seoul’s largest farmers markets.
Travelling along public buses, Songpa is located two hours away from Incheon International Airport. Along with these affordable buses, widely available A'REX Express or commuter trains move much faster but are more expensive, and not as practical for travellers with a lot of luggage. Airport and limousine buses provide affordable, direct travel to Songpa and other suburbs of Seoul, whilst regular public buses link air passengers to other transport hubs like the central rail station.
