The best shopping center in Seoul where you can shop around various kinds of product with cheap price. Also there are many famous restaurants for typical Korean food.

The valuable historical relic in Korea. This location is very famous for photo spot for backpackers.

B) The palce you can go by subway or bus in 10~15 min.

• Hwang-Hak-Dong Antique Market & Bazar
It’s located from Dongmyo Stn. to Sinseol-Dong Stn. where there are many tchotchke and antiquities (Especially this market is vigorous in the weekend day time). You might obtain great chances to look around or get peculiar objects with really surprising price.

• Cheonggye creek
You can find the beautiful stream passing through the heart of Seoul to Han-River whose uncovering operation is completed in 2006.

• E-mart
If you are planning to stay longer or want to buy some Korean traditional foods like Kimchi, Dried seaweed or instant noodle, etc… for your family or friends, you can easily get the all necessaries with reasonable prices in this mega mart. Simply you can imagine E-Mart as a Korean version of Wal-Mart.

• Dong-Myo
This place is famous for paying people’s respect to the soul of 관우 who is popular general in China (This place is located on your way to my room from the station)

• Myung-Dong
This place is very famous for fashion and cosmetics where are a lot of shops to enjoy. And you

• Insa-Dong & Bukchon Hanok Village
I strongly recommend those places because you can feel what real traditional Korea is. You can enjoy Korean traditional food, snacks and tea and also even sometimes free street performances. So you can find interesting festivals on weekends. If you take a walk about 15 min more, you can reach Hanok Village which is famous for Korean traditional houses. Why don’t you take great pictures in front of them!?

• Jonggak Stn.
Do you want a crazy night in hot place booming with youngsters? Then you should just go to Jonggak Stn. where you can find lot of pubs everywhere whole night. Now let’s heat the night!

Thanks very much for your attention so far. Hope you have great trip here!!! If you need help, please contact me anytime, anywhere!! Have a fantastic day. Welcome to Seoul!

  • The room was really spacious and clean! It was really neat with clean towels, washing machine and necessary utensils, pots and pan for cooking! He was really accommodating and offered to help us keep our luggage till evening. The place was really near to dongdaemun cultural train station (about 3mins walk) and of walkable distance (10mins?) to dongdaemun shopping area. The building also has a convenient store so it was really easy for us to get food and drinks anytime. The wifi was strong as well and he replies to emails relatively quickly!

  • Chris is very quick at responding to emails. There was some confusion regarding getting to the apartment but Chris replied quickly about this.

    The location of the apartment is very good. Walkable to the shopping areas / many restaurants and subway station.

    The apartment itself was not bad - just a little tired looking.

    But for the location and space wise - I would consider to stay again.

    Thanks Chris!

  • We had a wonderful stay at Chris' apartment. The location is perfect with three lines running in the nearest subway station. There's a convenience store in the ground floor of the building so it was so easy to buy food and groceries anytime of the day. Chris was a perfect host. He was very prompt in responding to me, was very understanding, and thoughtful, as he prepared noodles, cold beer, and drinking water for us. We'd definitely stay in Chris' apartment again.

  • The flat was good sized and comfortable. It's very well located near the Dongdaemun History and Culture Park Station, which 3 subway lines cater for.

    The host was good. He was thorough in providing us information and was quick to respond to our queries.

    Would recommend to anyone.

  • Great location and cosy apartment for two. Excellent for people who has the stamina to shop late as the area gets more vibrant deeper into the night. The subway is 5 minutes walk away, 24hour convenience below the building and some great restaurants in the area. highly recommended for your 1st visit to Seoul.

    March 2014
  • The apartment is as per Chris description. It is clean n Chris provides all toiletries
    The place is very convenient for shopping and the train is just a short walk away. Train rides are cheap.
    Chris is wonderful host and will try his best to accommodate your requests and replies to queries very quickly.
    If you have lots of luggage it is best to take the airport bus.the train stations have lots of stairs to climb and will be difficult with heavy bags.
    When leaving take note that the last bus frm toyogo hotel is at 7.45pm.i was given wrong info by the spore airline office n have to end up taking a taxi to airport. However if you have more than 2 ppl it is alright to catch the taxi as it is about KW55000. The bus ride cost KW14500/person.
