Weekend Getaways from Seoul
Day 1: Myeongdong and HongdaeWhat we like most about Seoul is that each neighbourhood has its own unique, fascinating style that can't be found in any of the other neighbourhoods. The only thing all the neighbourhoods have in common are the beauty product shops. They are as common as convenience stores - there's one at every corner.Seoul is very cold in winter, but this trip wasn't as cold as we expected. Most days, the temperature was between zero and 5°C, and we only had a couple of days that were between - 10°C and zero.

Noryangjin Fisheries Wholesale Market
Wholesale seafood market with many many different seafood(some you will never see in sg)/buy fresh seafood especially sashimi and bring it to a restaurant to be cooked/remember to bargain(be firm)/remember to check the price with the restaurant before giving them your seafood (Noryangjin Station, exit 1)
This place has fabulous shopping; I’d recommend you pick up your beauty products and maybe some hair bedazzles here. It has a wonderful bookstore if you want some books to pass the time back home. However, the aquarium is an absolute must. Coex Mall also has about any food you could possible desire: America (Pizza Hut & Cold Stone Creamery!), Japanese, Korean, etc. Tips • Grab some ice cream while you’re here; it’ll help cool you off for the adventures ahead. • Cost: Mall Free; Aquarium cost below: Adults: 19,500 KRW Teen: 16, 500 KRW Child: 14,000 KRW • Hours: o Store: 10:30 a.m.- 10:00 p.m. (varies by store) o Aquarium: 10:00 a.m.- 8:00 p.m., 365 days a year (last entry is at 7:00 p.m.) Directions • Give the address to a taxi (but take the orange or silver taxis, black ones are more expensive). • Subway Line 2, Samseong Station, Exit 5 or 6–> Samseong has an exit that goes straight into Coex Mall, so look for the signs. The exit should be on your left when coming off the trains. See Seoul subway map here.
Shopping at Dongdaemun, Ehwa, Hongdae, Myeongdong, Namdaemun, Itaewon, Insadong- one simply does not visit korea if he or she did not visit these places. Dongdaemun district has many wholesale fashion markets opening up to 6am in the morning and there is a club at the basement in HelloapM. Ehwa and Hongdae are where the Koreans youngsters usually hang around. There’s many buskers/artists around the area where they express their themselves. Myeongdong is a cosmetics heaven, you can find alot of big brands there. Namdaemun, Itaewon and Insadong are more of the traditional markets. And there’s alot of street food along the street! TRY ALL THEM!
sungnyemun (Namdaemun gate) is one if the most treasured monuments. It is also known as the Great Southern Gate. It is truely stunning. It is one of the Eight Gates in the Fortress Wall of Seoul, South Korea, which surrounded the city in the Joseon dynasty.The Namdaemun Gate is the historical south gate of the city of Seoul when the city was surrounded by walls during the ancient times. Gate still stands as an ancient monument and it is located just next to the famous Namdaemun MARKET. This is one of the main attractions of Seoul and should not be missed when you are there. The fact that most of the stones in this massive edifice are original is one reason why it has been designated Korea's National Treasure No. 1.
