  • The hole is a bit like Mong Kok and Tsim Sha Tsui mixed version, whether it is cheap goods or high-end luxury goods can be found here, the street shop is very good to go, the place is not small, horizontal Street alley are shop cobblestone. There are plenty of things to eat, from snacks to restaurants.

  • Seven years ago, this time to feel changed a lot, the business is very much, there is a bit of Taiwan's night market feeling, but the price is really expensive, things are not wrong to eat, eat a Korean West Rice Dew is very special ~ ~ ~

Where to stay in Seoul

The Seoul metropolitan area has two districts especially appealing to backpackers--Jongno just northeast of the city, and Hongdae to the west. Both offer good shopping and dining, as well as easy transport links to the rest of the city. Mid-range options may prove difficult to find in peak season (July to August), unless you don't mind staying at a traditional hanok guesthouse, where loads of character make up for any lack of amenities. Finally, a range of top-end hotels with an impressive list of services and facilities lie scattered around the city.
