the fashion street has a lot of brands and you can find some pretty cheap stuffs here. You can hardly find a rubbish bin and a lot of garbage just throw in the planter box and roadside. Beware of car coming when you walk here.

There are may stalls in this street selling garments as well as food. Most of the people there are not able to speak English or any other languages.

From Yongdusan Park we came down via escalator and arrived in this area. A lively winding road lined with shops. If its still not enough, there's Lotte Dept store nearby. Its a goos connection between the park and BIFF and Jalgachi.

We stayed at Terra Guesthouse on the 7th floor of Jagalchi Market. The opposite of the main entrance of Jagalchi Market, you can find many adjumma waiting at their restaurant inviting you to dine in.

For value for money shopping, this is a place to go. It is within the yongdusan park area. One suggested itin is to start from Gwangbokro shopping street to Gukje market, then to Changseongdang Food Alley, BIFF Square, Jagalchi market and then Nampo underground shopping street.

This is where the nice shops in Nampo are. If you don't find what you want for the price you want go to the gokj market next door (to the left)
