Description

Seoul Never Sleep

CNN once stated that sleeping in Seoul is for losers.
With so much to do in Korea's capital after sundown,
they argued, hitting the pillow could only be a waste of time.
For Seoul is a new world at night: as its glittering lights pop on to
hail the onset of evening, a whole other urban landscape awakes
where shining shopping malls, steamy saunas, and lively clubs
and bars can be enjoyed round the clock. Relish the refreshing
breeze while cycling along the riverbanks at night, and when
hunger calls, enjoy a generous and delicious late night meal.
Seoul — the city that never sleeps — shows a beautiful new side
at night, and is full of shimmering and mesmerizing lights.

There were office employees who had come here to relax after a busy day. Children were playing near the water accompanied by their parents, who were busy worrying they didn’t fall into the gushing stream. Beautiful young couples, completely in love, were engulfed within their own universe and not paying attention to anyone besides themselves. Birds were flying in the evening sky and even the fish could be seen in the lucid waters. SALAMAT SADYKOVA From Kyrgyzstan 13

Dongdaemun & Around Dongdaemun & Around must do Dongdaemun Market Shop until you drop at this all-night fashion town After midnight is when Dongdaemun Market really comes to life, a time when business seems to pick up in earnest. Because Dongdaemun is the epicenter of Korea’s fashion industry, any item related to fashion can be purchased here. In fact, there are so many largescale shopping complexes in the area that it is better to pick out one or two suitable to one’s tastes rather than trying to see all of them. The area is packed with simple meal choices for late-night snacking, including topokki and shish-kebabs. When shopping begins to take its toll, then a massage at a 24-hour jjimjilbang (Korean spa) or watching a movie at an all-night movie theater is recommended. ©Korea Tourism Organization Night Shopping for Full Fashion at Dongdaemun Recommended Course  hop for clothing and accessories S Dine at a pojangmacha (tented street restaurant) Relax at a jjimjilbang (Korean spa) Dongdaemun Fashion Town From product design to production and sales, Dongdaemun is the heart of the Korean fashion industry.

There are also various international restaurants and shops selling all kinds of foods and wares. It is ideal for night owls, offering a variety of options available till late at night through its many high-quality restaurants, bars, and clubs. Clubbing in Itaewon Recommended Course  inner at an exotic restaurant D Strut your stuff at a night club or be cool at a jazz bar Relax at a jjimjilbang (Korean spa), or Korean sauna Expect to find more foreign clientele at Itaewon’s clubs than elsewhere. Revelers tend to be mostly in their late 20s or above, and clubs adopt a freer dress code and manner compared to those in Gangnam. Halloween is an especially-recommended time to visit as most establishments will cater to the occasion, with clubbers costuming up in suitable attire, from brain-dead zombies to Korean-style monsters, and creating a festive mood across the district.

And tonight, during our discovery, it was all that! In Itaewon, everyone is welcome. This place doesn’t choose or discriminate against you, no matter what language you speak, no matter what the color of your skin is, or no matter what country you are from. Itaewon doesn’t try to define you. It’s up to you to define Itaewon. ANGELO CARLO CATIVO From the Philippines 24 ©Korea Tourism Organization 25

Gangnam Gangnam must do Apgujeong-dong, Cheongdam-dong, Sinsa-dong, Seocho Gangnam Style Nightlife for Trendsetters The famous Gangnam region of Seoul consists of locally well-known districts Apgujeong-dong, Cheongdam-dong, and Sinsa-dong, where can be found high-class restaurants and luxury fashion brand shops, cafes and clubs frequented by local celebrities. Of course, it was PSY who really put Gangnam on the map, and thanks to Gangnam Style , it is now Seoul’s most popular tourist area. Stop by Garosu-gil in Sinsa-dong for brunch or dessert during the day and then drop by one of the local clubs and spend the night as if you were Beyonce, Lady Gaga, or any major celebrity. Recommended Course Going to a Club in Gangnam Gangnam’s classy clubs are the destination of choice for fashion-lovers and trendsetters – not to mention local famous figures - so style and sophistication is a must. If you are wearing sweatpants or flip flops, you may not be allowed to enter. Admission is generally higher here than clubs elsewhere in Seoul, however these are the places to go to truly experience ‘Gangnam style’.  ive music at a jazz club L Drop by a bar for a few drinks Clubbing all night Club Answer  dmission 20,000-30,000 won A  ri-Sat, Nat’l Holiday & Valentine’s Day 9pm-6am; F Admission till 12am Cheongdam Stn (Line 7), 10-minute walk from Exit 13  2-514-4311 0 535, Dosan-daero, Gangnam-gu Club Eden  dmission Wed, Thu & Sun 20,000 won; A Fri-Sat 30,000 won  ed-Sun 10pm-6:30am W  innonhyeon Stn (Line 9), 5-minute walk from Exit 4 S  2-6447-0042 0 120, Bongeunsa-ro, Gangnam-gu Mass  dmission Sun, Tue-Thu 15,000 won, A Fri-Sat 20,000 won  pm-6am 9  angnam Stn (Line 2, Sinbundang Line), 5-minute walk G from Exit 10  2-599-3165 0 415, Gangnam-daero, Seocho-gu The Octagon  dmission 10,000 won before 12am; 30,000 won A after 12am  hu-Sat 10pm-7am T  akdong Stn (Line 7), 5-minute walk from Exit 4 H  2-516-8847 0 645, Nonhyeon-ro, Gangnam-gu 26 ©Korea Tourism Organization 27

Music, Drinks, and Gangnam Style Bars Gangnam’s most successful bars all have four basic things in common: refined interior designs, good customer service, high-quality menus, and a great selection of music. If you expect nothing less from your ideal drinking establishment, you will find plenty of options here. Vinga The largest bar in South Korea, Vinga serves over 800 kinds of wine from around the world. It holds a ‘Tasting Music Listening Wine’ party on the 2nd Saturday of every month as a way of introducing new music and wine, both of which are carefully coordinated.

You could spend a whole day just walking around Coex Mall, nevermind the tree-lined shops and galleries of Garosu-gil, the department stores of Apgujeong, or the boutiques of Cheongdam. Of course night time is when it really comes to life – when there’s a restaurant and bar for every taste and a hundred new people to meet each night. They say ‘Gangnam’ means ‘south of the river’, but it’s definitely the center of the action for me! BEN JORDAN From Australia 29
