My friends and I have been to Korean for a multiple times now and have been staying at Myeongdong area (Seoul’s shoping district!) for the past trips. To change things up a bit, we decided to stay at Sinchon. It is still in Seoul but this place has a good mix of residential and shopping areas. I’m going to feature some of the streets of Sinchon. 🙂
You can defenitely do some shopping at Sinchon area as they have the make-up stores that are present in Myeongdong. There are also some nice clothing shops that are worth visiting.
Hongdae area is very popular among tourists – I guess you already know that this is where the young Korean people gather an perform dances and songs at night in the streets.
