Many luxury and trendy shops. Window shopping is fun. There are local skin care shops along the street. Less touristy compared to other shopping street.

Yes this is a fancy area, where locals shop, but sales assistants are just rude or don't offer you any service. It's a stark contrast to shopping in Myeondong, and after visiting Garosu-gil, I actually prefer it. Even a restaurant we had dinner at a couple of streets back from the main strip gawked at us.

Garuso-gil is a hip area frequented by locals. Lots of restaurants, cafes and shops. But the usual franchises or big chains of food and fashion but very boutique style, quite unique in its style. This is not your typical tourist spot but a genuine place where locals go to shop and socialize. It has a nice vibe to it and great to stroll through in afternoon and evening. Subway stop is nearby, easy to go there with public transport. Parking not that easy as limited.

If you are interested in boutique, independent-designer shopping - this street is a must visit. I spent an entire afternoon here and could easily have gone for longer. Lots of cute primarily clothing and jewelry boutiques, lots of pop-up jewelry stands on the street. Also make sure you pop into all the side streets as well - Garosu-gil is the main thoroughfare, but there are a lot of shops and cafes as well on the side streets all the way down the block. Shops are open until late (~9-11 PM)

The area was recommended by locals and indeed, it was interesting to walk around. We spotted many local singers. It was dominated by youngsters. We took a coffee and watched different kind of people walking around.

Don't miss to have a cup of coffee at one of the many cafes, it's worth to chill for an evening apart from shopping around.
