There are several major department stores in Korea. Galleria, Lotte, Hyundai and Shinseage department stores. I can’t tell which one the Korean people would prefer the most but for me, I would choose Hyundai Department Store. That’s because it’s near my house and I feel most comfortable with Hyundai one.
This one is located right in front of the exit 4 of Cheonho station in Gangdong-gu, Seoul. And there is a huge underground parking lot. It is endlessly huge but it’s not only for the department store visitors, ha. This is a 13 story building and there are so many luxury stores each floor for fashion, Jewelry, shoes, suits and so on and you can see so many popular restaurants as well. But most of them are quite expensive as you know already.
This is a huge building standing in the middle of downtown so the traffic is quite busy. When it gets dark, the whole building looks very nice. I got one photo from the homepage.
There are so many luxury shops for almost everything on each floor.
Remember when I introduced Bibimbap the last time? When I want to eat Yuke Bibimbap, I’d visit this restaurant again. This one is really really good. It's on the 13th floor.
