What to do in Gangnam?

Gangnam and Garosu-gil are known for their ostentatious wealth, plastic surgery palaces, and tourist-friendly restaurants. Really, Gangnam is a land of Dunkin Donuts and corporate coffee chains.

Your guide Jasmine will show you this, and then she'll show you the secret places that the selfie-stick wielding tourists know nothing about. Start out with some street food and walk around the wide boulevards of neon. Then duck into the alleyways. Enjoy a meal of sizzling charcoal grilled Chicken Galbi, a rarity in Seoul. Then duck into an old Korean version of a speakeasy--a supermarket with a pub in the back. This is '70s style gamaek culture from the Jeonju region. It's like nothing you'd see in glitzy Gangnam.

Shh... don't tell anyone!

So, to break it down

  • Korean street food
  • Full Chicken Galbi meal
  • Old-fashioned speakeasy pub

Wear comfortable shoes and bring an ample appetite. The ticket price includes all food. It also includes alcoholic beverages (within reason). Non-alcoholic option is available.

All tours must be booked in advance, please. Tours with no bookings 24 hours ahead of time will be cancelled.
