It's easy to access Myeongdong and it's a cool place to shop. Almost everybody could speak English or Japanese and it was easy to communicate.

Lot of shops to choose from ranging from high end to more affordable stores. We enjoyed the experience and lots of restaurants nearby for a rest in between shopping.

I don't get why people like it. It's super crowded and the same stores with the same prices are all around the city. Really don't get it.
