Much more than just a shopping district, Sinsa is a neighbourhood where art, fashion, and beauty come together. Sometimes referred to as the "Europe of Seoul," Sinsa is home to tree-lined streets, charming cafes and restaurants, and numerous aspiring fashion models and photographers (and one is almost guaranteed to see a fashion shoot when visiting). Although high street stores have definitely moved into the popular district, the abundance of nifty boutiques and ecclectic bookshops help to retain the neighbourhood's intimate charm. Because Sinsa is also a spot for Hallyu and cosmetic surgery, a complementary experience at the Medical Tourism Center will be included on the tour.

Join us for a fun stroll through this unique area. We'll explore the world of medical tourism, visit the Simone Handbag workshop, stroll Garosu-gil's beloved tree-lined street, and be tempted by dessert alley. Garosu-gil is particularly pleasant in the autumn--when we'll be visiting--as the Ginko tree leaves are beginning to fall.

For those who have time, we'll finish with lunch at Cafe Able, a local restaurant.
