There were many shops along the main street and side lanes. The area was crowded with local people and tourists searching for their souvenirs and food. A lively area particularly at night time.

No smoking street. Walking distance to BIFF Square. Bought quite a lot of stuff here. Highly recommend it if you are into Korean fashion.

At every end of year, this place shines with the beautiful and huge christmas tree. The street with lots of shops gets enlightened with the millions of little light bulbs. Good place to see the holiday season of Korea.
