Garosugil | Europe in Seoul
Sometimes referred to as “Europe in Seoul,” Garosugil is a trendy tree-lined street with plenty of cafes, bars, restaurants and shops. The half-kilometer promenade located just south of the Han River is fast becoming one of Seoul’s most popular weekend hideouts.
Though its rising appeal has inevitably led to considerable modern development in recent months, there are plenty of places along the strip that still retain their charm.
With all the foreign cuisine, bookshops specializing in art and design, and nifty clothing boutiques, Garosugil is a pleasant alternative to the pricier neighborhoods of Apgujeong and Cheongdam.
Getting there: Take subway Line 3 to Sinsa Station. Get out at exit 8 and walk straight (approx. 800 meters). Turn left at J-Tower, that tall glass building three blocks down. Alternatively, Garosugil can be accessed from Apgujeong Station (subway Line 3). Get out at exit #5 and walk for about 15 minutes. Turn left at Kraze Burger restaurant.
