Global Seoul Mate Activities

  • Visiting the Soopsok Hanbang Land Sauna (숲속한방랜드)

  • Global Seoul Mate Activities 2600

    Marie and I visited 숲속한방랜드 (Soopsok Hanbang Land) sauna, near Yonsei University in Sinchon. 숲속 (Soopsok) means “middle of forest.” 한방 (Hanbang) is a name for Korean medicine. 랜드 (Land) This is a 24-hour sauna located in the mountains, away from the hustle and bustle of busy Seoul city life. It’s a neat little get away to sweat out the previous night’s alcohol or a place to relax and relieve some stress. If in Seoul, take the green 7024 bus. It goes directly to the parking lot. Or take a taxi from Sinchon Station, and tell the driver to go to “Soopsok Hanbang Land.” They will know it right away.
