The buildings and shopping boutiques provide a modern backdrop for the traditional street food vendors. Myeongdong is even more fascinating at night because you'll see locals and tourists flocking to the shopping areas, street food stalls, and kiosks.
Almost every single Seoul vlog I've watched on YouTube mentioned Myeong-dong, a prime location in Seoul known for its endless stream of cosmetics shops, clothing stores, and street food kiosks. I went CRAAAZY here during our first visit and it was everything I imagined it would be: loud, crowded, colorful, and wild. Myeong-dong's energy is unreal, and it's without a doubt one of my favorite spots in Seoul.
Binondo ⛩️ is known as the PH's chinatown, which offers a huge selection of cheap finds from apparel, bags, shoes, and of course, some of the best dish selections 👌
Some of my favorite bites here are:
🏮 Lord Stow's Bakery (superb egg tarts!!)
🏮 President Tea House (yum hakaw 🍤)
🏮 Chuan Kee (oldest fast food here! fav fried chicken 🍗)
scattered all-over you'll find small-whole buildings dedicated to thrift shops! but be warned that there might be some sketchy people near. its fun looking for hidden gems and some ukay buildings section their products from children wear to vintage furniture by floor.
