Samcheong-dong | 삼청동

Samcheong-dong’s unique mix of traditional hanok-style buildings, modern art galleries, comfy cafés, and excellent restaurants makes it a huge draw. Samcheong-dong is a melting pot of old and new, East and West, that wonderfully demonstrates Seoul’s evolving culture. Taking a walk and appreciating this peaceful, quaint area is a journey in itself.

EAT>
Check out El Casa for tapas. This eatery is a Spanish restaurant and features mostly seafood. The two-story building has large windows and an atmosphere like a Spanish home.

BUY>
The newly-opened Kiehl’s Boutique is stocked with the latest cosmetics, haircare, skincare items from New York.

SEE>
No other district in Seoul offers a higher concentration of contemporary art galleries and shops than this area. Hak Go Jae and Gallery Hyundai garner much of Korea’s critical acclaim, as do Kukje and Artsonje Galleries.
