[Travel] Shopping Heaven’s at Seoul, 2014

by - Thursday, December 11, 2014

Seoul has many places to shopping, especially to ladies. Among the places that I always go to shopping at Seoul are Myeong-dong and Hongdae.

Myeong-dong is one of primary shopping districts in Seoul. The two main drags meet in the center of the block with one beginning from Myeong-dong Subway Station (Seoul Subway Line no. 4) and the other from Lotte Department Store at Euljiro. Many brand name shops and department stores line the streets and alleys. Common products for sale include clothes, shoes, and accessories. Not forget that these places also have many skincare stores too.

Subway Station: 
Myeong-dong Station (Seoul Subway Line 4), Exit 5, 6, 7, or 8.
Euljiro Il-ga Station (Seoul Subway Line 2), Exit 5.

Hongdae (the area in front of Hongik University) is a neighborhood known for its youthful and romantic ambience, underground cultures, and freedom of self-expression. Unique cafes, cozy galleries, accessory stores, fashion shops, live cafes and clubs, art markets, and gourmet make this a popular hang-out for locals in their 20s and 30s and a fascinating place to walk around.

These unique places plus cultural events, street performance, and festivals held here make Hongdae an area that always packed with people and excitement. Special streets such as ateliers’ street (with full of private institutions for art students preparing for university entrance exams), Picasso’s Street, and Club Street are also must-go places if you’re hoping to fully experience the Hongdae area.

Subway Station: Hongik University Station (Seoul Subway Line 2 or Airport Railroad)

Now, I have new favorite brand from Korea, which is Style Nanda. I like the style and fashion in the Style Nanda store. I went the branch at Hongdae. It’s also having the cosmetics brand, which is 3 Concepts. Honestly, my skin is quite sensitive for cosmetics so it’s difficult to me for using any cosmetics, but when I try cosmetics brand from 3 concepts – its suit to my skin. Now, I fall in love to 3 concepts of Korean cosmetics brands. These brands not have in Malaysia yet, so I’ll buy a lot when I go to Seoul again on next year.
