Seoul, South Korea (Garosugil)

Garosugil is one of those streets that's so charming that walking to the end of it feels melancholic. It has a distinct charm unlike the other streets I've seen in Seoul. It is quirky, a little quieter, and overall charming. It is lined with various local and international brands (such as Karl Lagerfeld pop-up store, 8ight Seconds, and that outlet store we went in that I don't remember the name) that you won't ordinarily see in other dense shopping area's in Seoul like Myeongdong and Hongdae. But of course, you will also see the popular ones like Stylenanda, Innisfree, and El Cube - all of which have prolific branches in Myeongdong and Hongdae. You can also find here some of the cutest theme cafes such as Line Cafe and Skinfood Cafe. If you are feeling something different and want to avoid the overcrowded areas of downtown Seoul, head over to Garosugil. You will find most of the same stores minus the crowd but plus the lovely trees the line the entire street.

Garosugil may not be in the top list of places to visit when in Seoul but it is a lovely nonetheless. As a person who loves to walk, it is one of those places where you don't even realize the time. It feels like no time at all walking from one end to the other - it is that charming (plus the adorable stores you will see along the way)! I think I found my new favorite place in Seoul (sorry, Samcheongdong, you've been replaced).

How To Get There:
Take Seoul subway and get off at Sinsa Station (line 3). Take exit 8. When above ground, take a left on the first corner and then turn right. Walk straight until you see Lohbs on your left and Artbox in front of you. Turn left to start your journey along Garosugil.

    Hello Jenn! It's been awhile since I last visited your blog. We're actually "planning" on going to Korea. And I'm glad na your latest post is about it. Love looking at photos ng streets sa Korea. Parang ang sarap gumawa ng music video or mag-vlog. Hehe. :)

  7. You're welcome.

  8. It has been a while since I logged in. Korea I think should be in everyone's bucket list (and Japan of course). Para kang napunta sa ibang mundo. Para kang pumasok sa kdrama. hahaha! OA lang.

    Go vlog! Sobrang vloggable ng Korea! You will never run out of places to vlog about!
