Myeongdong: A Shopper’s Paradise

For weeks now, last Saturday was a rare weekend when it did not rain. Hubby graciously looked after the two kiddos and off I went, alone, to Myeongdong. It will never change. The place will always be a shopper’s haven. Most tourists who come over here are Japanese because the price is pure bargain for them.

I personally like Myeongdong over Dongdaemun – another shopper’s haven. Myeongdong shops are spread over a wide area unlike Dongdaemun’s whose shops are inside several buildings housed in several floors. You can get in and out of shops and in between you can look at the people on the street most of them wearing the latest Seoul street fashion.

Walking along these shopping alleys was a rare treat!

There were so many people that Saturday night. Seoulites were probably just waiting for that rainless day to go out and be seen. Unfortunately, days after that Saturday were filled with rain again… what a way to spend summer here in Seoul.

Anyway, here was the evidence as to how excited Seoulites were to spend the day and night out. In their excitement, they probably forgot how efficient Seoulites are known with regards to waste disposal:

  1. Is there a Lioele’s store at Myeongdong?
    If yes plz tell me because my mom will go to Korea this weekends

    Plz reply asap, thanks so much

  2. Like Dongdaemun, myeongdong is one of those streets where you can see litters everywhere because it’s always crowded. But it’s much better than Dongdaemun.

  3. Oh my Mommy Wends! Of course I heard of Myeogdong from the Korean dramas. I wish I can come and shop with you.:) I updated my list for Liole, fyi. 🙂 I took out some other items so I can get something form Tony Moly, Baviphat and SkinFood. 🙂 Thanks again. 🙂
