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.

There seems to be no subway near Haeyang-ro. Maybe you could take a taxi to Nampo subway station. Gwangbok-ro is on the left of Exit 7.
