Awesome. The winding little streets are deceptively massive. Wear comfortable shoes and prepare to shop.

Best buy: Korean skincare products

Fun even if you just feel like window shopping. Amazing shoe selection. Great contrast from time spent in nearby Namdamun Market.

If you want to shop like crazy go to Myeongdong! It's an entire area dedicated to shop upon shop. Besides clothing stores like H&M and Zara, this is really the place for you if you like skincare.
The Faceshop, Etude House, Missha, Nature Republic, HolikaHolika have several stores right beside each other throughout Myoengdong! N.B. The Forever21 in Myeongdong seem to have closed. I went to the one in Gangnam instead.
The area also has the Nanta Theater, loads of restaurants and cafes.
However, it's very packed with people 24/7. If you want another less crowded shopping experience go to Gangnam/Garuso-Gil - I really liked that area as well!
