The Hyundai Seoul is currently the most recently opened department store in Seoul and the largest department store in a single building in Seoul. It is currently one of the most popular places in Korea and is crowded with people regardless of weekends or weekdays.

It is a complex shopping mall that gathers the latest and trending things such as food, shopping and sights. There are many trendy select shops as well as famous luxury brands. Even if you don’t interested in shopping, there are many interesting attractions such as cultural exhibitions, so it’s a good place to spend a day. In particular, if it is difficult to tour Korea outside in cold, hot or rainy weather, so I recommend it as the best indoor tourist destination.
