Much more than just a shopping district, Sinsa is a neighbourhood where art, fashion, and beauty come together. Sometimes referred to as the "Europe of Seoul," Sinsa is home to tree-lined streets, charming cafes and restaurants, and numerous aspiring fashion models and photographers (and one is almost guaranteed to see a fashion shoot when visiting). Although high street stores have definitely moved into the popular district, the abundance of nifty boutiques and ecclectic bookshops help to retain the neighbourhood's intimate charm.
Today will be a short easy walk (around an hour) along part of the Seoul City Wall. We can meet at Hansung Uni Station (Samseongyo)-Line 4 Exit 4. We will make our way towards Hyehwamun City Gate and follow the city wall, along through Naksan Park and past the Ehwa Mural village. We will complete our walk in the Dongdaemun area for easy subway access. For those who interested, we can enjoy lunch in Seoul's "Silk road/Little Russia" district.
