25 Places to Go on a Single Seoul Subway Line (#2)!

 

Gangnam (강남) – Below the Han River

Gangnam is the newer part of town, especially the south eastern side. And if you find yourself south of the river, you can find shopping malls, art centers, and even an amusement park! Without further ado…

14. Jamsil Station – Line 2 directly connects to the most beloved amusement park in Seoul. It’s a disgustingly cute land of fun characters, complete with rides and games. Also, Jamsil Station is near a large lake that’s really nice to just chill out and relax.

15. Sincheon Station – This station is often confused for Sinchon Station (North of the Han River, near Hongdae — this station is Sincheon with an E), so be careful not to mix the two. But if you came here by mistake, it’s not a bad part of town either. There’s a small strip near exit 3 for good eats and drinks where many locals and college students hang out.

16. Sports Complex Station – Not a bad station if you’re into… wait for it… sports! There’s the Jamsil Baseball Stadium, which serves the LG Twins. And if you’ve never seen a Korean baseball game, we highly suggest it. There’s also Asia Park, which is a large park close by; it’s great for picnics, playing sports and overall people watching.

17. Samseong Station – This is the stop for Seoul’s original mall, Coex, which of course has shopping but also has other attractions like an aquarium and movie theater. There’s also 7 Luck Casino nearby as well as tons of highly rated and recommended eateries outside of the mall.

18. Seolleung Station – Although this is a very corporate part of Seoul with tons of big fancy buildings, there’s a beautiful contrast with some of the Royal Tombs of the Joseon Dynasty (Seonjeongneung), a UNESCO World Heritage. And even if you’re not into historical stuff, it’s still a nice park to just relax in. Also, check out the super spicy Seonmae Tteokbokki truck.
 

19. Yeoksam Station – This is another very corporate part of Seoul, with many company buildings. But the highlight here is the LG Arts Center, which has musical symphony orchestras, musicals, dramas, jazz quartets and other performances to see.

20. Gangnam Station – One of the main hangout areas of Seoul. There’s lots of food, drinking, cafes, activities and shopping. One of the best places to go shopping in Seoul is the underground shopping mall, directly connected to the station. It’s also a major transportation hub, so even if you’re not on Seoul Subway Line 2, you can get here pretty easily by bus or even Line 9 (Sinnonhyeon Station). Warning: if you hate people, avoid this place. It gets really crowded.

21. Sadang Station – This is a big local’s hang out, mostly for businessmen and residents. There’s of course food and drink (probably more on the drinks side), and there are a few shady parts of the area (not dangerous). But generally, it’s a lively place to hang out, local Seoulite style.

22. Sillim Station – A big residential area for students (mostly near Seoul National University), this station is most famous for its proximity to Sundae Town, which have entire buildings dedicated to sundae (blood sausages). See this post to see where to go.

23. Daerim Station – This stop is ultra local. But that’s the cool part about it. It’s a part of Seoul that pretty much no tourist book will ever recommend. But it’s very interesting because here you’ll see how Seoulites from a different part of society live. The biggest attractions here are Guro Market and Daerim Central Market.

Sindorim Techno Park Roof – Naver Blog

24. Sindorim Station – Connected to the station is a large shopping complex that includes another Technomart on Seoul Line 2 (the other is at Gangbyeon). That’s several floors of heaven for technology geeks. But there’s lots of other things here too, like the movie theater, a large indoor playground for kids and one of the best kept secrets of Seoul’s roof tops.

25. Mullae Station – From Seoul Line 2, you can walk to Times Square Mall, one of the biggest malls of Korea. It’s home to one of the biggest movie theater screens in the world, lots of shopping and entertainment. And there’s a bunch of old school tent pojangmacha (tent bars) outside too.

Nice! Now you know 25 places to visit on a single subway line. It’s super easy to use, extremely convenient, and of course you now know there’s tons to see. Who just said “Yay for Seoul Subway Line 2!”? No one? Fine, whatever… we’ll say it… “Yay for Seoul Subway Line 2!” 😀

    Ttukseom is nice to. Access to Seoul Forest and the river.
    And Nakseongdae has great access to SNU and Gwanaksan (but I guess a lot of subway points have access to Gwanaksan.) Nakseongdae is also the birthplace of a general, so there is a cool park in that vicinity.

    Nice article ^^
