More enjoyable with
Area, like everywhere. Just more tidy and strict about rules. Nothing special. Many skyscrapers and hotels around.
It's a really crowded area and the prices tend to be kind of high. Good for a visit every here and then but trust me, you don't wanna live here.
As people know, rich people area. Not necessary go there if you just wanna go shopping or hangout, there are other good places like Sinchon or Myeongdong
