Yangjae Citizens’ Forest
Yangjae Citizens’ Forest was created in 1986 ahead of that year’s Asian Games and the 1988 Seoul Olympics. It features over 70 different species of tree including zelkova, maple and pine trees and has sports facilities for volleyball and tennis, a barefoot walking area, a memorial to Yun Bong-gil and a wedding hall. Above all, the forest is considered an excellent resource for conservation and education as well as being a popular picnic destination with Seoulites.
Shindang-dong Tteok-bokki Ally
Whether it is day or night, this tteok-bokki alley is always crowded. Here, tteok-bokki is cooked directly at your table in a large pan filled with rice cakes, fish cakes, fried dumplings, hardboiled eggs, ramen noodles, jjolmyeon noodles and various vegetables.
Each restaurant has its own special sauce, so no two venues are the same. Generally however, the tteok-bokki of this area is sweeter than it is spicy. After you’ve eaten all the rice cake, you can mix rice and crushed laver seaweed in the remaining sauce. As most of the restaurants here are open 24 hours a day, it’s a great place for a late-night snack. The tteok-bokki alley is located near the Dongdaemun History & Culture Park.
* 5 minutes walk from Exit 7 of Sindang Station, Subway Line #2 or #6
