Visiting Seoul of South Korea, Myeongdong is a not-to-be-missed area simply because the atmosphere is great, particularly at the weekend evenings. There are so many cosmetics shops everywhere. Many of them have more than one branch to make sure you won’t miss them. Restaurants and cafes are mixed in the street but most tend to be on the side or upper floors. Shops open late around 11am and close around 9pm at night during the weekdays (except for cosmetics shops). The area gets very busy at the weekends with more stalls and street food in the middle of the street.
