Just walk around the district and enjoy the college atmosphere. Since students are fluent in English, do not hesitate to ask someone to help to find best bars and restaurants.

Visited Sinchon on our last night in Seoul. It’s a great place to shop and dine. Not so crowded as Myeongdong. Lots of dining choices. Love the live performances at night

The area is very energetic, plenty of cafes, restaurants, "love" motels, clubs & bars, shopping etc... However the main attraction is people ~ stylish Koreans, foreign student ~ absolutely lovely👍

Around Sinchon you can find a strip of street food, bars, clubs, traditional restaurants, and arcades. It's perfect if you want to avoid foreigners, mostly locals in this area. Although a great selection things to do late at night, there tends to be a lot...More

It is just near the Ewha University, you can just easily combine two places in a walking distance. This place is more a place for searching food than shopping. Lots of restaurants could be found in the area.

Getting to Sinchon is fast and easy. This is a place with many stores (including department stores), places to eat and to hang out. There's many activities out on the streets as well. Take the rest of the day and hang out in Hongdae which...More

Walk within this area, centered on what used to be the
western gate of traditional Seoul, and you'll get a
glimpse of Korea’s past through the beautiful and
historic buildings that are scattered throughout.
Whether wandering around Deoksugung’s palace walls or
touring more historically somber sites such as
Seodaemun Prison, this is one of the best places for
culture, architecture, and history lovers. Jeongdong

Sure! Especially, if you go on a weekday, it isn't as crowded. The sidewalk is fairly wide for strollers and the main street is narrow, so there isn't a lot of traffic. For youngsters, of particular note there is a dessert... More
