Bogwang-dong is a lively, diverse working-class neighborhood smack in the middle of Seoul, next door to foreigner-friendly Itaewon and exclusive Hannam-dong. The riverside parks and biking paths of the Han River are just a few steps away. The palaces and Gangnam nightlife are short subway journeys or cab rides away. This is the perfect location if you want to be right in the center of Seoul and to explore both the older parts of town to the north and the newer parts of town to the south. Also close to the U.S. army base, Namsan park, the Korean War Museum, the Leeum museum and other sights. This apartment is tucked into a fascinating area full of winding alleyways that is a treasure to explore!
