Located by AK Plaza in Mapo-gu, Gyeongui Line Book Street is the of an urban regeneration project made to serve as a cultural space under the theme of “Books to promote reading culture” with the hope that visitors will share the wisdom of life through even just a single book and assist the development of the publishing industry.
Gyeongui Line Book Street is 6.3 km long, including Gyeongui Line Forest Park, and is adjacent to the Hongik University and Sinchon areas, which are frequented by young people. In some sections, there are reproductions of former Gyeongui Line’s railway and crossings, making it a popular spot for couples to visit on their dates for a photo op.
The longest section that covers Yeonnam-dong is called Yeontral Park because it resembles the hip Central Park in New York. It has become so popular that it even serves as a new tourist destination for international tourists.
There are various bookstores and walking courses along Gyeongui Line Book Street, making it perfect for even solitary walks and solo outings.
Visit Gyeongui Line Book Street, and enjoy being immersed in thought with books!
