Unquestionably ranked as one of Seoul’s most exciting neighborhood, Hongdae provides a unique blend of youthful energy and artistic innovation. The vivid graffiti-strewn streets serve as the perfect backdrop for selfies and creative photography and everywhere you look, K-culture captivates the scene.
Tribers stepping out of their comfort zone and learning a K-pop dance routine!! 👏🔥 #PROUD
Experience Seoul with the Tribe
Take on Seoul with the Tribe and discover a new side to South Korea. Open your mind to the co-created community experiences, adventures, and classic WiFi Tribe moments that'll make our time here one of a kind.
1. Admire the most beautiful temple in Korea
Headong Yonggungsa is located right by the sea on the northeastern coast of Busan and invites to learn more about the Korean Buddhism.
2. Go camping in Seoraksan National Park
This beautiful national park is in northeastern South Korea and offers some of the country’s best trekking and camping.
3. See the palaces
All five palaces in town are surrounded by hip cafes, Korean restaurants serving delicious local food, and traditional hanok houses.
4. Visit the green tea plantations in Boseong
Learn about green tea production, photograph the landscape, roam through the green hills, or sample green tea ice cream.
5. Try all the street food
Gwangjang Market is one of the largest traditional markets in Korea and was even featured on Netflix’s Chef’s Table. If you're a foodie you'll be in paradise!
6. Sing in a Noraebang
One of the best ways to feel Korean is to get a group of Tribers together and sing your hearts out in a Noraebang, a Korean karaoke room. Tribers from 2023 still rave about them to this day!
7. Wander around Jeju Island
Go hiking, diving, get on a boat and sail around the island, hop from one street food stall to the next and enjoy a weekend away from the city.
8. Visit the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ)
Pay a visit to the mark on the map that makes it necessary to differentiate between ‘North Korea’ and ‘South Korea’. A Triber highlighted this trip as a memorable moment from the 2023 Chapter!
Seoul Unfiltered - 2023 with the Tribe
Our Home in Seoul
Up to 100 mbps
Welcome to lively Hongdae! Near 4 universities, this neighborhood offers an exciting blend of boutiques, live music venues, bars and so many cute cafes! We are close to the very Instagrammable street art in Hongdae, and the Hongdae Free Market. We are 1 min from the airport bus stop, and a main transportation hub.
We'll stay across 3 apartments (15 rooms) in two properties next to each other.
Each room comes with AC. We got access to multiple fully fitted kitchens, beautiful living rooms, and dining rooms to hang out in.
Good to Know
The city is really large and divided into very distinct neighborhoods which are not exactly close to each other. However, this is easily solved since the best way to get around is the metro which is one of the most efficient systems in the world.
Korea embraces social harmony as an extension of the Confucianism engrained in the culture. Being polite when you speak is imperative and knowing a few words and phrases in Korean goes a long way. Practice saying simple greetings such as “gamsahabnida” (thank you), “annyeonghaseyo” (hello) and “juseyo” (please).
Tipping is not required at restaurants and is considered impolite.
