At night, street is closed for car traffic, shops are opened and you can move freely. It was Xmas time so lighting and decoration are everywhere. You can rest and eat in between shopping. Prices are relatively high!

This is a world class shopping street. So many major labels but depending where you come from you could get sticker shock when you get your converted visa bill. Lol

Very nice place for shopping where you can find almost everything. Nice place to spend an afternoon or evening. Prices are more or less like in Europe.

Mostly asian brands/shops, just a couple of western shops, but the prices are quite high. Quite overloaded by tourists...

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.
