2016 Seoul Tango Festival - Map & Venues


The general area of the festival is located around Garosu-Gil (Garosu Street) in Sinsa-Dong (新沙洞, 신사동). It is one of the most lively and dynamic areas in Seoul, with plenty of restaurants, coffee shops, botiques, and night life. Here are some useful tourist information:

The closet subway stations are Sinsa Station and Apgujeong Station of the orange line (line #3).
