  • Lots of stores and restaurants. Mostly cosmetics. Visit on afternoon/evening since most of the street vendors will only open around 5PM. Interesting food selections. Best come with empty stomach.

  • I have been to Seoul, Busan and Jeju. This is my favourite shopping street in Korea. This visit to Myeongdong is my third travel here. Myeongdong reminds me of why I like to travel to Korea in the first place.
  • Famous street in Seoul for shopping, although Crowd and stores have reduced after Covid. But still a must visit if you are visiting seoul.
