Gwangbokro is a street flanked by retail shops that reminded me of Orchard Road in Singapore. You can find many brands of fashion here from the well known ones to the lesser known ones, but nothing really different other than a nicer looking street. Prices...More

This place definitely caters for youths related fashion, with both local and international brands. Public seating are also provided along the road making this a great place to shop. Could easily spend 2-4 hours here if I could find a toilet.

Everything from cosmetics, clothes, shoes to souvenirs you can find here. Good restaurants all around also. Going across 3 subway stops this is the best hang out place!

At night, street is closed for car traffic, shops are opened and you can move freely. It was Xmas time so lighting and decoration are everywhere. You can rest and eat in between shopping. Prices are relatively high!

There seems to be no subway near Haeyang-ro. Maybe you could take a taxi to Nampo subway station. Gwangbok-ro is on the left of Exit 7.
