Garosu-gil (가로수-길): (part 1)
After my Sunday class, I decided to take a walk in Garosu-gil: the Mecca of boutiques, cool cafes, and any other consumerism-driven places. Endless one.^^
For Koreans or some expatriates, this has been a famous hang-out for years. But, foreigners or tourists, they only stated to notice this hip place recently, especially after Gangnam style brought attention to this Gangnam area.
Just about 150 meters away from the exit 8 of Sinsa station (line 3), we would end up in a street....about 1 km long...
with its undisputed and indispensable features of plastic surgery advertisement in town. It's a tinsel town of its own that makes it an attractive place to be.
This, actually, looks like any other streets in Seoul where shops and cafes dot most of the spaces. But, if we look into it deeper...we'll find its own cuteness and attractiveness: exclusive to Garosu-gil.
Oh one more thing:
Blacksmith-like cafe is a cool hang out place in Garosu-gil.
If you wanna have a chance..try it out once...
