Night Bus N62
See & Do Tours
Sometimes, it can be such a pain that the subway closes around midnight here in Korea. Especially when you don't like to take taxis for the hassle or for the price, we wanted you to know that there are public transportation alternatives to the subway. There are several buses that run late at night and are available to take you to your destination. We chose one that might be particularly helpful to you. The N62 bus. Running from 11:40pm to 3:00am, it runs across the city taking you to some central locations.
For adventures late at night, there's nothing like this youthful and vibrant part of town where students, travelers and locals alike gather to mingle. Read on in the Nighttime Adventures in Seoul and you can find out more about what to do in this 24 hour city.
Whether on the rosy, art filled streets or whilst sitting in one of the spot's aromatic cafes, you never know when you'll bump into someone who's searching too.

Another food option with restaurants that are open until 3 am, is Wangsimni's Gopchang-gui Alley. Not for the weak of stomach or unadventurous, gochang-gui is Korean barbecque with different part of pig intestines. Often served with alcohol and vegetables, it's a less discovered part of the Korean cuisine that is also a must-try experience.
