This is a very busy shopping area stuffed with vendors selling any kind of product or food you might want. It is typical to what you might find at other shopping areas around Seoul. It is often crowded and a little claustrophobic in my opinion....More

Well, I chanced upon this place as it was too cold walking in the streets. It's pretty nice here. Lots of souvenirs shops and some clothing and some shops selling K-pop stars' cards, stickers etc.

Myeongdong / Namdaemun
Arguably Seoul’s most famous neighbourhood and
undoubtedly one of its most popular, Myeongdong takes
shopping and eating to new heights, with hundreds of
shops, restaurants, and cafes all stacked on top of
one another. The rise in popularity of Korean
cosmetics, fashion, and more has made this area a
must-see for visitors who come and marvel at
Myeongdong’s often frenetic pace and energy. Lotte and
