Although there are lots of people here, but for some reason, I don’t feel any excitement here. Lots of cafeteria and some restaurants selling non Korean food. No street food. If you are looking for food, you might have better luck with the next parallel...More

This tree lines street is filled with boutiques which offer really nice clothes and accessories. We also enjoyed cafes from the quaint 8 SECONDS cafe to the cutie ones like Line and Skin food cafe. Not crowded at all.

Unlike Myungdong (a lot of tourists, China town-like), this place is less crowded, with trendy/quality shops and cafe. Shops open at 10-10:30, early enough for most. Attached my lovely daughter in LINE store.

This is one place that draws me more than Myeongdong for its more glitzy image and less congested street. Although the shops here are more upmarket, this street sprouts into narrower alleyways that lead you to myriads of cafes that offer a tantalising array of...More

A more unique and refined shopping experience in Seoul with its gingko tree lined avenue compared to the cosmetic street in Myeondong or the bargain basement sweep in Dongdaemun. Be warned that it may be expensive. Fun place to people watch, window shop or to...More

One of the trendy & posh shopping district for the wealthy in seoul. And plenty of cafe & restaurant & bar around the area. But the most intersting sight i notice are many people walking with bandages after having plastic surgery.

The street is beautiful and lined with trees filled with autumn colours. There are many trendy shops and cafes scatter around the area. The people here seems more affluent looking and well-dressed compared to other areas.
