It’s a mall but it’s big and pretty much has anything you would want to do including a theatre and an aquarium. Lots of tasty places to eat it at and of course who could forget the Gangnam Statue outside!! Also the library is pretty...More

We stayed at the COEX hotel so we took a trip underground to the shopping center. Cool gift shops and strange food, but otherwise just another shopping mall. I attached some photos

This convention center is huge and you could easily get lost if you are not careful. The food and shops can be pretty pricey though so be prepared to spend a little more if you intend to eat/shop while you are there.

I heard a lot about the COEX mall beforehand and travelled a fair distance on metro to see it for myself. Disappointed. Just a big mall with an aquarium in it.

A large business hub, Samseongdong is anchored by
Korea’s World Trade Center, where many important
business exhibitions and meetings are held. The
enormous COEX mall sprawls underground, providing a

zen, head over to the ornate Bongeunsa Temple which is
one of Korea’s most important places of worship. Or
