“Just another cathedral”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2012 via mobile

Nothing special. Just another cathedral and it is a small one. However, it is located in Myeongdong which is a busy hypermarket area so it is worth a visit.

took quite some time to locate the cathedral as the map seems confusing. but when we found the place, it's actually very accessible. didn't manage to go inside as it was already late. maybe next time we will try to attend a mass there. the church looks very nice and grand from the outside.

“Peaceful place and easy to get to...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2012

A very peaceful place inside. One thing I found to be quite interesting is in the pews, there are no kneelers. Very different than other Catholic churches in the States, for example. If I didn't have the time constraint, I would love to attend a Mass in this Cathedral.
There's a gift shop nearby. Not very big, but they have Korean books, crucifixes, rosaries...Some of the merchandises, like rosaries, are something I've not seen anywhere else.

“Wonderful walk around the Myeong Dong”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2012

It was a wonderful opportunity for the K-Supporters s to have a walk around in Myong Dong with the Korean Tourism Organization staff and the boss. It was fun with the lovely people of Korea and k-Supporter’s from around the world. This activity was planned and well organized. Everybody was full of energy and enthusiasm.
Actually this activity was to introduce Korean Tourism Organization activities to the foriegners at Seoul and to attract their attention for all those festivals and performances. As the embassador of KTO i feel honored during this walk. It was full of cahrm.I felt a kind of interest from foreigners who we met in Myeong Dong. They were curious about the activity and showed much interest about the Korean Tourism Organization work. After the joyful walk we had a tasty Lunch. All together the K-Supporters were happy sharing their views, exchanging contacts and discussing the upcoming events.
The most interesting part of this mission was the gifts and souvenir we received from KTO including 8 GB USB and much more. Overall the mission was a success full of charm, enjoyment and team work.
Thanks to KTO for this wonderful opportunity.. : )
