Sinchon is not as crowded as Hongdae, with wider walking street and lively activities on weekend.

The answer is This Sinchon’s Yeonsei road is closed for cars. It's the first Transit Mall (대중교통전용지구) in Seoul. It's nice to stroll around this endless pedestrians-friendly shopping streets. Besides shopping stores, this street certainly not lack of yummy foods. These restaurants and cool cafes mostly on the second or third floor of the buildings. Do look up for them~!^^

明洞往往像徵韓國時尚指標,能否進駐明洞的門檻更是品牌發展上的依據,這裡的牌子備齊又集中,絕對是外國旅客、年輕人流連往返的地方。 無論是彩妝還是服飾,韓國人憑藉著韓星打廣告、電視劇宣傳也讓國家的實力一一被看見,這次的明洞之旅讓我對韓國的品牌有更深入的了解,也莫名的增添了不少好感。 還是覺得韓國人很厲害,韓風正盛,除了製造生產外,連行銷、語言、優惠、交通,似乎全都有配套措施,能讓來玩的旅客都買得很盡興,更願意把錢掏出來。

It’s not a secret that cosmetics and skincare in Korea are very cheap, since that is where they come from. But you might not know that some items can be crazily cheap because they can go on a one-for-one promotion, of 50% discount! If you happen to be shopping with friends, you might get to enjoy even cheaper price tags just by sharing! So my tip is to look out for incredible promotions and especially those one-for-one!

An artistic neighbourhood covered in wall art graffiti and made up of some really interesting architecture, even if shopping isn’t your thing you should still come here to just take in the surroundings. As mentioned it can attract a large crowd of tourists at times so we’d suggest coming here earlier in the day if you’d prefer to browse in relative peace before the rush begins.
