Default Re: What is the must buy items in Korea

hi, i just came back from seoul yesterday...
must try their streetstalls, lots of them everywhere. try their korean pork/beef bbq as well as eateries. the food is cheap.
buy skincare, got faceshop, skinfood, etude house.....prices much much lower than sg price. and they give u lots of samples
i also went to Lotte Mart to shop for kimchi, seaweed and korean snacks.
my first trip too and i really enjoyed it.
u can try bargaining at the namdaemun & dongdaemun markets but dont expect to get much discount. maybe at most 20%. be friendly else they show u face...

the subway is the most convenient for getting around. its v easy to travel in seoul. enjoy ur trip!

Seaweed - best is to buy at the airport - there's a supermarket there.

The Face Shop - heard that it's much cheaper ?
Adidas Shoes - heard from friend that it's "limited edition" in Korea - as in designs avaible in Korea only - but def original

I bought a cute vintage luggage at Dongdaemum (:

There's this pear drink - it's in Singapore though - quite nice.
Ginseng if you're rich - quite exp

Korea's winter clothings ? Their shirts etc ..

Enjoy

For Everland .. nothing much .. but you can take the mini bus where you go inside an animal enclosure and you'll see some mini performances by those bears etc .. (real animals)

You'll get to see animals in everland

For Lotteworld - the tix is like : you can ride a certain NUMBER of rides ..
If you go by tour - nothing much to 'ride' cuz if u reach there .. will be around evening/night time .. (depending)

if you are going to korea. BUY KRISPY KREME doughnuts. I bought 12 boxes back to SG. Just get the glazed ones. Once you tried KRSIPY KREME glazed doughnuts, J.CO, dunkin donuts & donut factory's glazed doughnuts just don't measure up.
