With the all-time low Korean Won, many are flocking to the K-Pop country. If you're into shopping, there's no better place to go other than Seoul, since many are also bitten by the K-Fashion bug.
I love to travel, & I like to roam. I’ve been to Korea on countless occasions in all seasons. This trip to Seoul in Spring is a time where everything is bursting in life. Only difference, no sight-seeing this time. It was a very short trip, only two full days in Seoul. Love the cool weather, about 13 - 15 deg Celsius.
So join me, while I take you to the buzzing capital of Korea & show you where to shop & eat, K-Style!
Myeong-dong is well known for being a shopping Mecca as well as being a fashion trendsetting district. Here, you’ll see fashion clad youth treading the streets of Myeong-dong. The place boasts two anchor department stores (Lotte & Shinsegae), a bunch of shopping malls, & countless designer labels as well as non-brand shops, selling everything from inexpensive accessories to luxury items.
How to spot that fake bag!
Nobizib for dinner, which is well-known for its BBQ meat. Honestly, I’m not a fan of Korean food especially Kimchi. But one needs to feast on an authentic Korean BBQ when in Seoul. Well, as long as the meat is not marinated in those thick & sweet Korean sauces, one meal wouldn’t kill. I’ll be back with my review on this celebrity outlet.
Approximately 750m from Namdaemun Market (10 min walk)
