Hongdae Tours

Always abuzz with energy and excitement, the district of Hongdae is known for its lively nightlife. Set on Seoul's western end near Hongik University, the area's quirky cafes, avant-garde art galleries, boutique shops and gourmet eateries make it a popular spot for young locals, not to mention a fascinating place for visitors.

Visitors can marvel at Hongdae's street art and performances, immerse themselves in the lively cafe culture or indulge in some retail therapy in the shopping district, perhaps making a stop at the Hongdae Beauty Shop, just as the locals do. A weekend market runs from March to November, with stalls springing up near the university's front gate and selling Korean handicrafts and other souvenirs throughout the afternoon until sunset. By night, Seoul's youth comes out in force to have a good time at the area's dozens of bars, taverns, karaoke dens and clubs.

Many walking, cycling and even kayaking tours (on the Han River) of Seoul begin and end at Hongdae Station. The family-friendly and hugely popular Trick Eye Museum is also located in the area.

Practical Info

The main access point to Hongdae is via Hongdae Station on subway lines 2 and 6. The area is also served by Hongik University Station and Sangsu Station.
