One of my favourite place to go and hangout with friends is Garosugil in Sinsa-dong. You can literally get everything you want here! (Shopping, cafe hopping, getting pampered by beauty salons, famous restaurants and bars.)
One of the popular tourist attraction at Garosugil is the Line Friends Store. The store has 3 levels, on the first level, there is the famous bear that everyone takes a photo with~ and on the basement level is their own cafe, where you can chill and relax if you get tired with all the shopping.
Garosugil is also very suited to take photos. On normal days, you can easily spot bloggers taking photos along this street.
There are a few cafes with good interiors and atmospheres. I highly recommend C27 (a signature cheesecake cafe), Dore Dore(the interior is very pink and girlish~), Art C (a cozy English decor style cafe).
There are so many good food at Garosugil that I never get tired of going there.
Bad Farmers – A popular salad shop that has people queueing throughout the year. It is by far the best salad I had in Seoul.
The Original Pancake House – A good place for brunch! Their seasonal menu with strawberries are soooo good!
Table Star – A Italien Restaurant opened by a famous fashion designer in Korea. Their fries are honey dipped which is really delicious.
