This is a little nature sanctuary, a little corner of nature, in the midst of dynamic Seoul. It's no wonder that Seoulites love this place. There's nature everywhere in Haneul Park for capturing your moments away from the bustling city life!
With the subway station right on the park, Yeouido Hangang Park is one of the most easily accessible parks along the Han River. It’s especially the most picturesque spot to visit during the spring season, as you can find cherry blossom trees lined beautifully along the road from Yeouidong-ro to Yeouiseo-ro.
First established in the 1920s, it offers a unique mix of modern and traditional elements for your travel experience in Seoul. The narrow alleyways are lined with uniquely decorated shops and cafes as they twist and turn. It’s no surprise that these alleyways are referred to as “photo zones” as the colorful shops make the perfect backdrop for capturing moments!

Common Ground offers young and trendy fashion shops of up-and-coming new designers, plenty of food trucks to try out, and instagenic photo spots.
'Garosu-gil' which refers to tree-lined street in Korean, is a popular upscale street with tastefully-decorated cafes, cosmetic stores, designer shops, and rows of captivating Ginkgo trees. It’s the perfect place for cafe-hopping, or simply want to capture your moments in style!
Dongdaemun Design Plaza (DDP) is a popular tourist attraction and a centrepiece to South Korea as a fashion hub, being home to the yearly “Seoul Fashion Week” which sees many Korean idols attending the event! The stunning architecture of this landmark makes it one of the perfect spots for a photoshoot in Seoul, whether it’s with loved ones or even yourself!
