Hongdae, the neighbourhood where everything is possible

Hongdae, the neighbourhood where everything is possible

The kingdom of trendy Korean youth, Hongdae brings together everything that makes the soul of the city: meeting places, arts, shopping and nightlife.

Encircling Hongik University, the Hongdae district is a vibrant place teeming with students who have made it their home. Hongdae is full of trendy cafes, shops of all kinds, outdoor karaoke, independent artists and street performances. Here, freedom of expression is at every street corner and takes all forms.

In the evening, Korean and international students lay claim to the bars and clubs to dance and chat until dawn. At the weekend, the district of Hongdae is also the scene of a flea market where artists come to sell their creations: paintings, pottery, sculptures ... You will not be able to leave before discovering a treasure or two.

Hongdae is not an average neighbourhood. This is what makes its charm and propels it to the rank of a must-see in Seoul.
