The shopping here is absolutely delightful, and the food really delicious. I highly recommend coming here especially if you like buying cosmetics and skincare.

This was the neighborhood I enjoyed the most on my first visit to Seoul, although it's crowded, I'd say that's what makes it interesting, it's so alive and at the same time super safe. Obviously shopping for beauty brands (and cute accessories) is a whole other part of why I loved this street so much. There's just so much to see, eat, and buy

Too crowded, because one of most famous and popular districts. Not really cheap, but place is the best because of street food.
