As Korean products such as K-beauty and K-pop are attracting attention from around the world on the back of the Korean Wave, cultural and shopping complexes in Seoul are gaining popularity. During the hot summer, how about having a leisure and relaxing experience while browsing around varieties of shopping complexes in Seoul? We would like to introduce four major Seoul shopping malls where tourists can have a satisfying experience.
Yeongdeungpo Times Square – Yongsan IPARK Mall – Starfield COEX Mall – Yeouido IFC Mall
Times Square, which is within an hour's distance from Incheon International Airport, is known as a cultural complex and tourism landmark in Seoul's southwestern region. You can stay at the Marriott Hotel connected to the Times Square building, and enjoy a trip with relaxed shopping and cultural experience. Times Square features a department store, multiplex cinema, and restaurants, as well as spaces where you can feel nature such as a terrace and fountain, and cultural spaces including an exhibition hall. In particular, the third floor is filled with cosmetics stores such as Etude House and Innisfree, where you enjoy shopping for K-beauty products, which is not to be missed when traveling in Korea. If you are interested in K-beauty, you should check it out.
