MARCH 22, 2014: DAY THREE
Despite my frequent travels, I don’t do a lot of shopping overseas. Seoul is probably the only place where there’s never enough space in my luggages for my shopping loot! Hongdae’s open-till-late vintage and indie stores are just about my favourite places to go. Right up there on my favourite shopping places in Seoul: IFC MALL @ Yeouido and LOTTE OUTLETS @ Seoul Station.
Following my solo-venture to Yeouido and Hangang Park, I took exit number 3 at Yeouido Station. This exit will lead you to IFC MALL directly! It also links to Conrad Seoul, where my colleagues and I stay when we travel to Seoul. Mostly, IFC Malls boasts of international boutiques and luxury franchises. In major shopping districts like Myeongdong, Migliore (Dongdaemun), IFC Malls, Lotte World, Lotte Outlets etc, you get to shop Tax-Free and get your GST refund from Incheon International Airport.
Lotte Outlets is at Seoul Station – the one-stop place where you can check in for your flights, deposit your luggages for a small fee, and shop till you drop right up to an hour or so before your plane departs! The mad convenience is why Lotte World is shopper’s paradise!
