Shopping
Head to the international district of Itaewon, a cosmopolitan center known for its shopping, food, and partying. The local saying goes that expats may not know Seoul, but they sure know this place, and you'll certainly hear a good deal of English in the area, which American soldiers called home in the years directly following the Korean War. Imported clothes fill the stores, while eateries serve up plenty of international cuisine--everything from curries to pizza and burgers. Bars and clubs add to the lively atmosphere of the district, home to a burgeoning LGBT scene. Arrange your visit to Itaewon and discover more family-friendly attractions in Seoul using our Seoul trip generator.

  • The people were so bad and they take advantage of tourist. Every thing is expensive more than any other place  more »
  • This is the downtown area with its many shops for young people. We have tradition and the ingredients are simple, such as eating, and stand on the side of the road.

  • Itaewon market is at shopping. Stalls, souvenir shops, pubs, bars, restaurants, international. Thailand's retail food shops BUA (we go African dining with delicious), the area will have a lot more than other foreigners in Korea, a mighty night called this district still shines. People can't sleep, food may be more expensive than other places because the foreigners, so overall a fun place to come at the Jolly one has suggested all katakana, don't miss.

  • Atendentes surpreendentemente amáveis, lugar seguro e região excelente. O hostel deixa um pouco a desejar, o banheiro é pequeno com apenas 1 chuveiro mas vale o preço.
