Myeongdong is HEAVEN if you’re a shopaholic. (Although if you’re not a fan of crowds, you might be better off staying home and shopping online)
There are stores for what seems like every popular brand–Korean and international–that you can think of. This shopping area is especially great for non-Korean speakers because most stores are staffed with associates who are multilingual (from English to Chinese to Japanese and more)
One of the first things you’ll notice when you come to Korea is that they are incredibly serious about their coffee. The cafe culture is so real. There are cafes around every corner competing to be the most trendy and Instagram-worthy cafe.
Naturally, I ate my way around Seoul to find the best one 🙂 And sure enough, I found my favorite cafe on one of my first days there…
