24 venues open 24 hours in Seoul
In Seoul, no one goes home by midnight.
In fact, many of the city's night owls emerge around then, to enjoy the nocturnal entertainments that kep this perpetually lit city humming till dawn.
The unintended side effect of this city-wide insomnia is that travelers from another time zone don't have to feel alone when they wake up at 2 a.m. and crave breakfast.
They can join the thousands of other Seoulites on the street, who, despite their lack of jet lag, apparently feel the same way.
Because nighttime fun doesn't have to be all about partying -- although there are parties aplenty (most clubs and bars stay open until 6 a.m.).
You can shop for clothes at any one of the malls in the Dongdaemun area, such as Migliore, which closes at 5:30 a.m. Nothing like a bit of shopping after a pint (or three), when your judgment is just impaired enough to make everything you try on look stunning.
So for anyone prowling around the city at random hours, here are 24 places in Seoul that never close.
