Myeongdong (명동)

The last night before leaving Seoul, we went to the long-awaited place that I longing to go and is all ladies heaven - Myeongdong (명동). It is arguably Seoul’s trendiest shopping district and a place to hunt for mid-level fashion and beauty items. 

This place really have tons of beauty items! You name it and you get it! And the best part purchasing from all these shops is you got lotsa of freebies compared to in Malaysia. Even for just 1 or 2 items for a very small amount, they do give freebies as well! They will try to attract you to go into their shops with a small freebie, like 1 piece of facial mask or nice pen.

The Face Shop, TonyMoly

You can get some discounted good quality fashions but you need to spot it and checkout each shops. I manage to find a great deal for a "Made In Korea" skirt for only KRW 10,000 (~RM30)!

And when its closer to late evening and at night, the crowd in Myeogdong started picking up and you can see more stalls and hawkers started to setup in the middle of pavement.

In Myeongdong, the two main drags meet in the center of the block with one beginning from Myeongdong Subway Station (Seoul Subway Line No. 4) and the other from Lotte Department Store at Euljiro.
