Let me introduce Myeongdong in Korea.

Myeongdong is one of the most visited places by foreigners in Korea.
Located in Jung-gu, Seoul, it is no exaggeration to say that it is the center of Korean shopping and culture. It is also famous as a tourist attraction for foreigners. I've been there a few times, and every time I went, it was always a lively atmosphere. However, I haven't been there often since COVID-19, but I took this opportunity to visit again.

What kind of attractions are there in Myeongdong?
A performance is held every weekend in front of the Migliore building, which can be seen at Exit 6 of Myeongdong Station. It is an eye-catching event because you can often see songs such as busking, dancing, and magic shows. Especially in the evening, it is good to look around in the cool breeze.
There is also a famous place called Myeongdong Cathedral. Although it is a religious facility, it is a building with deep historical significance, so it is good to look around with a reverent mind. Please note that filming inside is prohibited!

Please recommend food from Myeongdong!
I usually eat street food when I go to Myeongdong.
Also, there are so many kinds of food that I always wonder what to eat, but these days, I am into pork belly, baeksuk, and soy sauce marinated crab chicken. It's delicious as it is, but chicken is the best as a side dish for beer. If you go to Myeongdong, try delicious street food!

Please recommend something to play in Myeongdong!
If you like shopping, Myeongdong is the best place. There are many stores such as department stores and road shops, so it is so large that you can't see them all even if you go around all day. Also, there are Gyeongbokgung Palace and Namsan Tower nearby, so it is perfect to experience hanbok and take a walk in Gyeongbokgung Palace during the day and see the night view of Seoul N Tower at night.
