Great Shopping. Don't forget to buy all the random socks that you can't find in the US, the makeup, and clothes. Haggle! oh, and street food: Tornado potato, egg bread (get 2!), pomegranate juice, french fried corn dogs, etc.

My fav place for shopping in Seoul. All range (prices) of shops are available. You can buy some cute Korean things here. Strongly recommend this place to shop. You can buy some cute Korean souvenirs.Recommended for:

This is the fancier, chain-store shopping and eating pedestrianized district in center Seoul. It's only worth visiting for the people watching, which is a lot of Chinese and Japanese tourists. But if you are in the area, have a walk through.Recommended for:

Myeong-dong Street is filled with cool, little shops and restaurants. There are also street food stalls selling interesting items. I had an omelet sandwich with cinnamon and ketchup, and it oddly tasted good. It's also a neat place to take pictures, especially when the shops light up at night.Recommended for:

One of the busiest, most hectic street in town. Good place for shopping, eating, people watching, if you are visiting Seoul. This area is popular for Asian tourists: Japanese, Chinese and Southeast Asians. Don't forget to explore the little streets. There are big and small restaurants in the area.Recommended for:

Myeongdong is one of the best shopping spot in Seoul. What I love the most about this place is you can find all kinds of things from street snack stalls to branded items at the same place. So you get branded shops on either side of the street, and you get cheap merchs right in the middle of the street where you can get yourself a good deal of cute Korean goods. There's even an underground market just right beneath your feet around Myeongdong Subway Station with numerous shops that sells apparels and shoes and KPOP stuffs which was simply heaven for me.

Myeong-dong is a psychedelic kaleidoscope of sights, sounds, scents, and shopping.
There are a few main thoroughfares but it's the side streets and little alleyways that seem to have the best to offer, with interesting boutiques and food stalls crammed together side-by-side.
Some of the places we saw during our meandering walk through Myeong-dong (and worth calling out):
- Lotte Young Plaza (large department store stocked with trendy brands)
- ALAND (fashion-forward boutique)
- Myeong-dong Kyoja (Korean dumpling restaurant)
- Din Tai Fun (Chinese xiao long bao restaurant)
- Longbread (sandwich cafe attached to Lotte Young Plaza)
- SPAO (Korean clothing brand)
Go for broke!Recommended for:

One of Seoul's biggest shopping meccas. During your shopping trip, you can people watch from one of the many cafes or eat one of the trendy (but always tasty - you can't find bad food in Korea, unless you go to a "American" or "Western" one) restaurants.

We came back here night after night, it was so lively and a great place to shop! There were tons and tons of cosmetic shops. I was looking for face cream and the amount of store options I had to choose from was overwhelming. For instance Etude House was a popular shop but within the same stretch of shops, there would be 3 of them! It made starbucks in the US look like nothing! There were tons of cute clothing boutiques and street vendors selling various items such as phone charms. We loved Myeong-dong Street.

Great shopping - regular shopping plus street vendors that have fun stuff (think crazy mobile cases, socks, etc). Street food abounds and there are a few really great Korean BBQ places. Like other outdoor markets, you want to hit it up at night.

Stayed at this area everytime I visit Seoul and I am always amazed at the extent of shopping, dining and other activities in this area. It's a lively and busy area you can explore each day. The Nanta Theater showing Korea's famous Cookin' Nanta Show is located in the middle of Myeong-dong Street. A Catholic Cathedral can also be found in this street. Myeong-dong also branches out into several side streets where you can explore hundreds of stores including several famous Korean cosmetic brands.
Myeong-dong is also near the big department stores, most notably Lotte which houses the biggest duty free outlet in Seoul. Also within walking distance is the Nandaemun market.

If you want to see just how crowded Seoul can be, go to Myeong-dong in the evening, especially on Friday or Saturday. There's a million beauty shops and some street stalls selling clothes, as well as a lot of foreign brands. There are also plenty of street vendors selling snacks. Good for people watching, assuming the crowd doesn't overwhelm you!

Shopping galore! This is a shopper's paradise day and night! Streets lined with vendors and booths selling all kinds of things. I was there in the winter and bought some hats and boots for a really good deal. Of course you can always try to bargain with them. It's just an amazing sight at nighttime. There's also a lot of food stalls if you get hungry. Find a cafe to sit, hang out, and people watch as well.
