Top Answers To Seoul Travel Questions
Answer this1 AnswerI LOVE Seoul! I lived there for 2 years and I can tell you that Gangnam, Sinchon, and Hongdae are probably the best areas to stay in. Seoul in general, is a bustling city, however, Gangnam, Sinchon (not Sincheon near Gangnam!) and Hongdae are extra busy. Filled with mostly students and young professionals, there isn't a boring moment. If the party/slash drinking scene is not your thing, I say head over towards Yeouido, Hannam or Itaewon. The first is the "Manhattan" of Seoul, so expect everything to be uber expensive. The second and third are right next to each other. Very foreign friendly and you'll be able to find all the western foods you crave.
