Very nice place for shopping where you can find almost everything. Nice place to spend an afternoon or evening. Prices are more or less like in Europe.

There were many shops along the main street and side lanes. The area was crowded with local people and tourists searching for their souvenirs and food. A lively area particularly at night time.

There seems to be no subway near Haeyang-ro. Maybe you could take a taxi to Nampo subway station. Gwangbok-ro is on the left of Exit 7.
