Seoul Night Activities
1. Experience the Hangang River Cruise
Hangang River Cruise is the best way to see the beautiful places around Han River.
2. Try 치맥 (Chimaek) and 노래방 (Noraebang)
Chimaek is a combination of Chicken and Maekju. If you walk around late at night, you’ll notice that the only establishments open are Chicken & Hof. They serve Korean Fried Chicken along with Maekju (Korean beer). You may eat there or you can take it to a noraebang!
Noraebang literally means song (노래) room (방). It’s a private singing room with a big screen, karaoke machines, disco lights, sofas, tables, and thousands of songs to choose from.
3. Have a food trip at Myeongdong
Myeongdong is really famous for different kinds of street foods. If you’re on a budget, eating there will really help you save up. However, the beauty shops are really tempting!
4. Eat and drink at 포장마차 (Red Tent)
Eating in a red tent than in a fancy restaurant will make you feel that you are blending in with the locals. Some Koreans spend time there drinking soju after work.
5. Have a coffee at themed coffee shops
6. Shop at the night markets.
7. Take a bath at Jjimjilbang!
It may be shocking at first (to see everyone naked), but you’ll really enjoy taking a bath in different pools with herbs. You can also use different sauna rooms. It’s a good way to detox and relax after a long day of traveling. And oh, you should try having a body scrub!
8. Go clubbing
Night clubs can be found at Gangnam, Itaewon, and Hongdae. I can’t say much about this because I’m not a party person. LOL.
9. Watch the city lights of Seoul at N Seoul Tower
You can hike going up or you may use the cable car. Namsan Seoul Tower is the highest point to glance the most beautiful images of Seoul. Many Korean Dramas were filmed there because of the love locks.
10. Walk along Cheonggyecheon Stream
If you like long walks, you should go here. From Gwanghwamun square, you can arrive at Dongdaemun just by taking a walk along the stream. It’s really refreshing to walk there where you’ll see water, plants, and some animals. If you’re lucky, you might even witness some lantern exhibits.
