Great place for a Korean bbq and the amazing little sides well worth the money. It was also one of the cheaper places compared to others considering how central the location is. We read about it as opposed to knowing about wrapping the meat and...More

Myeongdong / Namdaemun
Arguably Seoul’s most famous neighbourhood and
undoubtedly one of its most popular, Myeongdong takes
shopping and eating to new heights, with hundreds of
shops, restaurants, and cafes all stacked on top of
one another. The rise in popularity of Korean
cosmetics, fashion, and more has made this area a
must-see for visitors who come and marvel at
Myeongdong’s often frenetic pace and energy. Lotte and
