After our Hanbok photoshoot we were so dehydrated, and so ready to leave the Bukchon Hanok area. We were also super hungry and we wanted food! We were craving for korean BBQ! So, the next stop had to be Myeodong!
Myeondong is a very famous touristic shopping street, they have everything there but its also very overwhelming because of the crowd. Sometimes you have to queue just to walk a few meters. They have all the brands and shops divided into small streets, so it’s very easy to get lost there. But you can sometimes spot some tourist guide in red jackets and hats, and ask for a map and they will kindly highlight the shops for you or help you get back to the subway.
We were pretty exhausted by the end of the day, so we didn’t do much shopping, but a quick stop at Åland. Åland is raved by so many youtubers and bloggers, it’s a recommended spot for fabulous hip clothes..or so we thought.
The shop was cool, but their clothes was in such bad quality. We could see that these clothes were fast fashion, and the lines in the clothes was so poorly sewed and a lot of the threads was hanging out and looking unfinished. The staff was horrible, they acted like they were to cool to help us, really unpleasant. So in my opinion, just go in there for window shopping but nothing is worth buying there. Because a lot of the stuff they sold could be easily found in other shops but for a cheaper price.
