A lot of people recommend people to visit Hongik University (Hongdae) when they get asked where to visit in Seoul. But what is the biggest reason behind this? This is why today I prepared the top 5 reasons to stay at Hongdae when you visit Seoul.




Reasons to Stay at Hongdae : 1. Convenient Transportation

Whether you arrive at Gimpo or Incheon International Airport, you can get off at Hongik University Station directly from the airport railway. Take a look at the transportation information table below and use it during your travels.

Reasons to Stay at Hongdae : 3. Open Day and Night

Hongdae's Day and Night are both very different and is the perfect place to be if you want to have fun. If you like to eat late at night or have a drink, this is the place you should stay at. There is no other place like Hongdae.

There are also many nightclubs and street performances at night. However, it is hard to call a taxi here at night and go home as there are a lot of people but if you choose to stay at Hongdae, you don't have to worry at all about this problem.




Reasons to Stay at Hongdae : 4. One Day Trip


When I visited Seoul, I wanted to explore more places so I signed up for one day trips. It is very common for these one day trips to leave early in the morning and most of the time Hongik University will be the meetup place for these trips making it convenient for you if you stay at Hongik University.


Don't you think it is extremely convenient that the pickup location is Hongik University?

Reasons to Stay at Hongdae : 5. Diverse Options

The biggest thing people look at when looking at accommodation in Hongdae would have to be the price. Hongdae has a variety of options for accommodation starting from cheap guest houses to luxury hotels.

The Hongdae area is very big so make sure to look at all the options available before you make your decision.
