    The road to Samcheong really lots of restaurant, attractions and many hiding places. Walking around with a camera and go out and look at the two legs is a sturdy carrying happy memories builds up a harness. I can feel the distance of-a-kind attraction in Seoul, I think.

    I've been to Garosu-gil and other popular avenues, but in my opinion, this is the best Street for a good walk and eat, coffee, or simply walk. This time we went to dinner at a restaurant and the atmosphere at night is really fantastic.

    In the first place where the birth is not good Samcheong purport to calm possible grade advancements and nowadays it isn't going to be nearly as locals scrambling. In the end, like a dying Mall Boulevard many shops will withdraw.

    Really a cool place to walk. You can see many people and nice architectures. The charming aspects is the mix between the contemporary and traditional architecture.

    Samcheong-dong is one of the most unique places in Seoul next to Gyeongbokgung Palace . Samcheong-dong is famous for its Bukchon Hanok Village. We saw many cafe located in samcheong-dong.

    Cool area with some various specialty shops like a local mall strip but much more hip. Found a good tea spot, with a gorgeous view, a fragrance specialty store and it really is what you find. I'd recommend coming on a cool day with lots of time to spare. The stores are on a hill and some steep hill walking required

Where to stay in Seoul

The Seoul metropolitan area has two districts especially appealing to backpackers--Jongno just northeast of the city, and Hongdae to the west. Both offer good shopping and dining, as well as easy transport links to the rest of the city. Mid-range options may prove difficult to find in peak season (July to August), unless you don't mind staying at a traditional hanok guesthouse, where loads of character make up for any lack of amenities. Finally, a range of top-end hotels with an impressive list of services and facilities lie scattered around the city.
