Shopping Malls

COEX Mall is the largest underground shopping mall in Asia. It is located in the basement of the Korea World Trade Center, located in Samseongdong in modern Seoul. The enormous shopping mall stretches from Samseong station all the way to Bongeunsa Temple in the north, and is considered to be the best shopping and entertainment complex in the area. Despite the complex's huge size, it is fairly easy to navigate inside this mall. Simply follow the main route and you will reach most parts of the mall, there are also signs in English.

If you get hungry while shopping, try the Lake food court with 16 restaurants, Korean, Chinese, Japanese and Western-style, for entertainment, head to the event court, where concerts and performances are staged, the Bandi & Luni's bookstore, where you can find English books on Korean culture and history and plenty of brand name stores.

Other attractions meaning a break from shopping include: The Game Champ, video arcade has 100 of the latest game devices, while the Megabox Cineplex has 16 theaters screening a wide selection of movies.

Try visiting some of the other popular attractions inside the mall, like the COEX Aquarium and the Kimchi Museum, where you can learn everything you need to know about Korea's favorite food and perhaps even try some.
