“So exciting - especially at night”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2013

This is a must do if you are in the area. It's really vibrant at night with lots of street and food vendors. You never know what you'll find and it's so much fun to walk around and see what each vendor has. I enjoyed trying all the different street foods. Good stuff

There is something for everyone! Nice atmosphere too and lots of different shops pop up here and there. There are some that are tucked away in the corner that offer good buys too..so keep your eyes open!!

“Awesomest Place Ever!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013

Shopper's paradise. From facial products, to food, to phone accessories, clothes, I even had a Korean stamp made from my name in Korean characters from a little shop. Food aplenty, take your pick from the various restaurants here. Fast food, many Starbucks (for the avid tumbler collectors), street food (open faced egg sandwiches, sausages, toasted octopus etc). It's really a haven for shoppers and every nook and cranny has a shop that you must walk into. AWESOME for shopping, spend at least a day here, go during the day and and also at night :)

“The craziest shopping street in the world”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2013

Starting Friday night this place goes into a frenzy. Really busy, great for shopping, so much sound and so much to see and eat it is an attack on all the senses. You have to experience this at least once

This is a place to be! a lot of nice shops and restaurants, Nanta theater. The area is busy 24/7. I love a Lotte department store for the variety of goods and food.
