  • I'm eating around here, and I'm going to eat it! The beauty salon and the decoration shop are all there! The beauty shop on this side sometimes finds hot products that other shopping circles can't find! Eat saturated walk, not like other business circle people crowded, but can also 愜 Yi Shopping, this side to eat or drink or coffee shop is quite a lot! Next time you have a chance to come back and hang out!

  • It was nice to walk the streets without having the car. Sinchon station is convenient for modern department stores to shop and got stuck. Mart is also nearby.

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.
