This mall probably has everything you need from home goods to little cute things that you can find in Korea. They are currently in process of constructions and more stores to come in. It's a great place to hang out, shop and eat.

A giant mall in the Gangnam district with something for everyone. Ranging from local products to high end products, a cinema and an aquarium. Coffee shops everywhere and a huge variety of places to eat. Information desks spread everywhere with helpful staff that speak many languages.

visited here since it's one of the biggest malls in korea. wasn't really too impressed by the shopping. but if you're an SM fan, there's an SM Coex Artium area which has a shop (usually packed with fans) and all sorts of other things to do. Also there's a city airport on level 1 that has a money changer that... More

This is a gigantic mall. You can find all the big name Korean brands as well as American and European brands as well. Super fun to go with the family, so many the escalators, the kids should enjoy it. Plenty of food and resting areas as well.

We took Gangnam station line 2 to reach coex mall. It takes around 7 minutes. The mall is too big and quite. Many restaurants are there and you can find Halal too. Many famous brand you will find with Korean brand.

It's a really huge mall. It's so easy to get lost inside it. But everything you need is here. From Korean and international clothes and cosmetics to food and services. This mall is in the same building as the exhibition halls so it's really convenient if you have an event to attend since you can just walk around while waiting.... More

This Coex Mall is very big to explore, they even have aquariums and place for exhibitions. Coex Mall is a high end mall located in Gangnam area. Not so much to talk about this mall, other than those special features, this is just like a normal mall with expensive things. Try to walk around, inside and outside the building cause... More

Staying in Samseongdong / COEX

Neighbourhood Profile
Samseongdong / COEX
A large business hub, Samseongdong is anchored by Korea’s World Trade Center, where many important business exhibitions and meetings are held. The enormous COEX mall sprawls underground, providing a myriad of things to do and see, including a large aquarium and movie theater. For a bit of peace and zen, head over to the ornate Bongeunsa Temple which is one of Korea’s most important places of worship. Or take a stroll nearby through the tranquil royal burial grounds of Seonjeongneung, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
