MyeongDong After The Dark

I posted about Myeong-Dong, the infamous shopping street in my previous post before (click here) but have you imagine how it looks like when the sun decides to take a break and the moon takes turn? 

So, after spending almost half of our day visited the love and romantic island, Nami Island, we're heading back to Myeong-Dong. Initially, we decided to visit N Seoul Tower but seems that all of us are so tired and exhausted, hence without thinking too much, heading back to Myeong-Dong is our next alternatives in order to hunt for our dinner. 

Once we stepped out from the subway station, I was so surprised and shocked whether are we reach the exact location? How come the Myeong-Dong I used to know has become another night street markets where a group of street vendors came out from nowhere and setup in the alleys and walkways between the buildings? All I ever heard about Myeong-Dong was it is famous for countless of fashion beauty and cosmetic outlet and crowded with numerous of restaurants, cafes, coffee shops and night clubs too but never came across where it will be more happening and bustling during the night time. I just can't explain why but I am deeply in love with street markets. Love to see the different kind of street foods and assorted products selling in the night market which sometimes I couldn't find in the shopping mall.

Cheap and trending garments are everywhere. Some allow to bargain, some not.

My haul bought from Myeong-Dong. If you love accessories such as necklace, bracelet, ring, hair clip and more, Myeong-Dong has many kinds of varieties.

Seriously, spending just a night to venture around night market around Myeong-Dong is never enough for me. I went again with my friends on the next day - to buy more and eat more.

But my holidays are only from end of july till starting of september. But I don't wanna go to Korea during summer when its all hot and sticky. Would like to find out more about their september weather. Please help :)

    1. Hi Mvonne! Yes, I went Korea at the first week of September and you're right, it's pretty hot although it being claimed to be autumn season. If you dislike the hot and sticky weather, I would recommended go in end of October. It might be cold but you will love the scenery especially with the red, orange and yellow leaves.
