The massive metropolitan area of Seoul maintains many shopping meccas, and one of the districts dominating this category is Myeondong. This is where fashion enthusiasts and trend seekers congregate to find the latest clothing items, shoes, accessories, and cosmetics. The district's streets are filled with a wide array of shops and outlets selling brand name items and leading international products. It is also home to several department stores, restaurants, and cafes. Visitors are given a range of choices when it comes to dining experiences and cuisine styles, which can include Korean, Western, and Japanese.
- Enjoy an incredible shopping experience by visiting all the major department stores in the Myeongdong district in Seoul, such as the Lotte, Migliore, M Plaza, Noon Square, and Shinsegae Department Store.
- Watch an amazing show at the Myeongdong Theatre, the former location for the National Theatre of Korea and now one of the centres of performing arts and culture in Seoul.
- Find peace and calm from all the shopping chaos by stopping at the Myeongdong Cathedral, which was completed in 1898 and is Korea’s oldest Catholic cathedral.
Tourists who wish to visit the Myeongdong district can conveniently take the Seoul underground and alight from either of the two stations serving the district. These stations are the Myeondong Station, which serves the southern section of the district and belongs to the underground Line 4; and the Euljiro il-ga Station, which is part of Seoul underground Line 2 and is closer to the northern portion of the shopping district. As an alternative, visitors can also take one of the several inner and outer city bus services, which operate daily routes that go through the district area.
