Seoul, South Korea


Where Tradition and Modern Artistic Sensibilities Meet

Samcheong-dong is home to distinctive cafés, shops, and galleries. Art appreciators have their choice of roughly forty different galleries displaying pieces from professional artists with exceptional skill. The area is filled with European-style cafés and trendy shops that have blended into the traditional landscape, some even taking up residence in renovated hanok that otherwise may have been left to ruin. For those interested in shopping, the area delivers an array for colorful accessory shops along both Main Street in Samcheong-dong and Hwagae-gil Street.

Samcheong-dong radiates serenity, comfort and character not readily seen in other places crowded with giant shopping malls. It’s no wonder it has made such deep impression on visitors from all over the world.
