Often referred to as “Europe in Seoul,” Garosu-gil is a trendy street complete with plenty of open-air cafés, bars, restaurants, and designer shops. Adorned with ginkgo trees, this 700 meter-long boulevard is a beautiful promenade in the middle of the city. In autumn, the golden gingko leaves imbue visitors with a sense of warmth and nostalgia. Contrary to crowded hustle-and-bustle shopping districts like Myeong-dong, Garosu-gil offers a welcome change of pace, catering to unique cultural tastes and artistic sensibilities.
