Myeong-Dong, Seoul Shopping's Haven

Date of Visited: 09th September 2011

Myeong-Dong, is undeniable one of Seoul's main trendiest shopping area, with more than 300,000 square meters of shops ranging from selling clothes, shoes, handbags, accessories to cosmetics. So imaging that the place that my friends and I stayed was just 150 meters away, we visited Myeong-Dong almost everyday, and sometimes even twice a day.

According to the tertiary itinerary that I did, we were supposed to go Nami Island on the second day. Unfortunately, it started to rain once we stepped out from out guest house. Hence, change to plan B. As I did mention before, one of the main reason we visited Seoul is also to meet our pretty and lovely Korean friend.

We met somewhere at the subway station nearby our guest house and once we met, she suggested to bring us for lunch around Myeong-Dong. Myeong-Dong is not only famed as a shopping haven, but it also crowded with numerous of restaurants, cafes, coffee shops and night clubs too.

This is the restaurant where our Korean friend brought us too. It's quite popular by the way and ever visited by some celebrities.

Let me introduce our Korean friend, Kyung Hee (the lady in white stripe shirt). Is it she lovely?

Kyung Hee ordered 2 big plate of this meal which claimed by her to known as "Seong Kee". It is some sort of glass noodles cooked with soya sauce added with lots of chicken, veggies and wait! Did you notice the super huge potatoes that mix together? It was a bit spicy but frankly speaking, we really love this and almost finished the two huge plates. We planned to spend Kyung Hee but at the end, immediately she paid for the food and said she treat us as her guests. Kamsamnida Kyung Hee!

Since we got plenty of time, we strolled around Myeong-Dong for few hours before move on to the next destination. Myeong-Dong is crazily insane filled with countless of fashion beauty and cosmetic outlet. You can even spot the exactly same outlet, not only two but sometimes more than 3 in the same row. So the next time your mission is to hunt for those beauty and cosmetic products, I strongly recommend to stay nearby Myeong-Dong but one reminder need to be aware is your wallet. It can seriously makes until you burn a hole in your wallet.

This big mascot is one of the promotion technique to attract more customer to visit their shops.

My friends were browsing handbags and it was freaking dirt cheap. RM28 for each and somemore, "Made In Korea". Really worth to buy.

Not only on surface, Myeong-Dong also has underground shopping center.

Floated everyday even on weekday especially with young people, Myeong-Dong is not only happening and lively in day time but also in night time. One of the place not-to-be-missed if visiting Seoul. Trust me, I'm kid not!

How to get to Myeong-Dong:
Subway line 4, Myeong-Dong Station, Exit 6

  12. Wooow Korea! Im jealous! Lol. After watching so many Korean dramas, I was inlove to Korea. Beautiful scenery,rich culture, and also omo their language,they looks like so sweet when they speak! Hehehe
    Thanks for bringing Korea to us!

  13. Its one of the place that we usually see in Korea drama right? Hehe.. really wish that I can go there someday too. :p

  14. Of course a holiday isn't a holiday without a shopping spree and in South Korea you can shop all day and night if you like. South Korea, and especially Seoul, has an amazing array of shops from department stores and shopping centres to markets and unique one-of-a-kind shops.

  15. Travel management companies offer a set of integrated travel solutions to their clients. A good corporate manager is able to set corporate travel policy guidelines and establish procedures for professionals traveling on company business. A proper travel policy plan maximizes cost benefits.
