Sinchon is just four stations (green metro line) from downtown Seoul. I love the vibrant, youthful vibe of this area, which is home to Hongyik University and the Ewha Women's University.
The place comes alive in the late afternoons and evenings when undergrads/postgrads stream out of classes to chill out in the many pocket friendly cafes, fast food restaurants, noodle shops. The cluster of alleys that make up Sinchon are full of shops and pushcart vendors selling all sorts of affordably priced, sometimes cheesy, girly stuff like cosmetics, toiletries, casualwear, bags, footwear, sunglasses, hair grips, cellphone accessories, fancy stationery etc etc.
If you want to break away from the crowds head to the Hyundai Department Store on the main road which sells upmarket adult stuff, has a well stocked basement supermarket and a few restaurants on its top floor for a more sedate but still easy on the wallet dining experience. Good to visit Sinchon's shopping streets at least once just for the experience.
