South Korea-Seoul-Myeong-dong Shopping Area

This is the famous shopping street called Myeong-dong Shopping Area.

There are many shops as well as street side vendors.

Many activities were conducted in this area too. We saw an astronaut asking for free hug. :)

Those guys in red jackets are guides of the big shopping centre. They directed traffics in that area. The thick jackets they wore was because it is still winter. I guess they dont wear such thick jackets during summer.

Oh i love that astronaut how cute.
Looks like a great place, the only time i got to Korea was on my way to Taiwan, we were at the airport and i was getting ready to take a photo, when i saw the signs that said absolutely no photos, you could see the guards across the way walking up and down with rifles....

Wow, that looks like a shopper's paradise! I'll bet you could spend days and days just browsing through the shops.
