We've all rocked out to the song and enjoyed the funny parodies and sampling all over the internet and television, such as the hilarious SNL skit, but do any of us really know what Gangnam is? I was as surprised as you to learn it is actually the name of an upmarket neighborhood in Seoul. Apparently, a Gangnam-style vacation is a thing now and you can plan yours with a cheap car hire in Seoul through CarHireX.com.
According to the Telegraph, Seoul is taking steps to encourage tourism in Gangnam, capitalizing on the success of Korean rapper PSY's record-breaking song Gangnam Style. Possibly the only group to capitalize on the popularity of the song appropriately, the Seoul Tourism Organization has created a promotional clip from the Gangnam Style video, which has already had its own measurable success to the tune of more than 300,000 views on YouTube.
However, the promotional video is really just to help people to connect the dots. The actual music video, featuring shots of the Gangnam neighborhood, is literally the best promo-feature anyone could ever ask for on youtube; it beat Justin Bieber's 'Baby' for the most views ever on YouTube just last month. The city is attracting more attention to the Gangnam area with several tour packages, not easy for an area that was formerly not really considered a tourist attraction at all.
So go get your Gangnam on by car rental this travel season. Pretend to ride a horse, twirl your imaginary lasso in the air, and enjoy Seoul, or any of our long list of popular destinations with a cheap car rental from CarHireX.com. .
