If you wish to escape the tropical heat for a cooler place, set out on a midsummer’s night drive. The Mt. Bugaksan Skyway is just perfect for a romantic drive date, featuring Seoul’s sparkling nightscape as the background. Also, the mountain trail is good for a nice slow stroll in the evenings. Starting from either Hyehwamun Gate in Donam-dong or Jahamun Gate in Buam-dong, the walk around Mt. Bugaksan on the beautiful road allows you to feel the nature and history of Seoul.
Bear House 곰의집 (T. 02-762-1447) takes pride in its 30-odd years of traditional, Western-style steak and seafood.
BUY> A gift shop and convenience store are located within Palgakjeong, an octagonal pavilion along the hiking trail.
Once at the pavilion, visitors can enjoy a panoramic view of the city and beautiful landscape below.
