It is really one of the most underrated neighborhoods in Seoul. This place breathes art! A place for college students because of all colleges around. Lots of restaurants can be found and some shopping as well.

Besides, Daehangno is famous with a lots of theatres, it's possible to... More

This place is very famous for the play. You can check out theaters, but mainly they perform in Korean. I do not know whether they offer translation or not. But if you have time, go and enjoy! There are some good places to eat out too.

Daehangno doesn't usually come on top of Seoul's touristic attraction list, but it definitely should. In such a small district, you can experience different facets of Korea's cultural, nighlife and culinary scenes. On the west end, you have Sungkyunkwan University (Korea's oldest higher-learning institution) and it's university street, food of shops and affordable restaurants and bars. In the middle, the...

Daehangno is a nice place to spend an afternoon walking around the restaurants and shops but on Sunday afternoons Filipino vendors sell all kinds of products from the Philippines as well as some harder to find western products.

Something for everyone. Excellent street food, coffee shops, restaurants and stores. Usually very crowded but this adds to the experience. Good variety for family as well. If you are looking for a spot to entertain your family for a few hours - really good spot to spend part of a day.
