It's one of the underrated neighbourhood in Seoul. We went there after visiting Gyeongbok palace and Bukchon. In different with Hongdae, Gangnam, Myeongdong, it's more like a authentic neighbourhood with lot's of restaurants, cafes and bars with cheaper prices. It's also nice place for a walk after dinner. 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. Lots of street food. Relatively sanitary...i.e. I haven't gotten sick eating any of the street for there. It's only a couple of... More

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.

Do you like performances like play, concert or musical? Especially if you want to watch a play with your lover, friend or family, and go to a nice and intimate restaurant for dinner, don't hesitate to visit Daehakro. I bet you will have a successful date.

Known as Seoul's theater district, off course Daehangno is filled with local cafes, shops, and a lot of local youngsters. Daehangno is a hidden gem, very nice place.

Known as the street for young people, also "Play Mecca". It's like cultural center of Seoul. You will see lots of small theater all over the place when you visit this area. One of the famous thing in here, "Sunday Filipino Market" open every Sunday. http://travel.cnn.com/seoul/visit/filipino-market-429413 I love more than any other places in Seoul. In fact, I live in...
