exploring seoul on your own…
Welcome to Gangnam! We stumbled upon this street market on a visit to the Gangnam Square where there is s stage dedicated at Psy! After dancing around we wandered the streets and stumbled upon some cute cafes and lots of alley way street markets! Sometimes the best times on vacation are those we don’t plan for :)
Address: 858-32 Yeoksam 1(il)-dong, Gangnam-gu, Seoul, South Korea*
Open Hours: I would assume a 8 am - 5 pm situation here
*note we walked around the Gangnam area after visiting the Gangnam Square and stumbled upon these markets! That is half the fun in traveling is exploring on your own. So this address is to the Gangnam Square and you can explore from here!
seouls biggest shopping center…
If your looking for some serious shopping - then look no further than Dongdemun! This place has the largest shopping center in Seoul and tons of street markets. It is rich with culture and also pretty popular for tourist, but well well worth a visit. You can also check out the Seoul Fortress Wall while your here too!

home of the 32cm ice cream…
Myeongdong stole me heart. If you know anything about me, it’s that ice cream is my love language! Rashawn has told me about these ice cream cones bigger than my head for about $2! We rushed over here and I was officially the happiest human in Seoul.
There is lots of street shopping and store shops along the way here too! It is a very popular street market, well worth pushing through the crowds.
