2009 Seoul Tango Festival - Map and Hotels

The general area of the festival is called Apgujeong-Dong (狎鷗亭洞, 압구정동) (photos). It is one of the most lively and dynamic areas in Seoul, with plenty of restaurants, coffee shops, botiques, and night life.

The closet subway stations are "Apgujeong" and "Sinsa" (新沙, 신사) of the orange line (line #3). All classes and most of the milongas are close to this area.

  • RingoPop studio (see map) - All classes and the Single Milonga are held here
  • Samjung Hotel - Grand Milonga (5/9 Sat). 10 min by bus or taxi from Apgujeong.
  • Tango O Nada - Farewell Milonga (5/10 Sun). Close to Hongdae subway station (弘大入口, 홍대입구), green line (line #2).
  • Other milonga venues are being finalized and most likely they will be located in the Apgujeong area.
