For Korean restaurants, we like to go for quick eats. Head down to the basement level of most of the malls – Hyundai, Galleria, and Shinsegae to name a few and grab fast, easy and delicious eats from the food court. Sidenote- be prepared for crowds.
No need to thank us. We've broken down all the best Korea has to offer, from the amazing shopping to the ultimate dining experiences.
First on our list is the new Four Seasons located at 97 Saemunan-ro, Sajik-dong, Jongno-gu, Seoul, South Korea. This has quickly become our go-to hotel when staying in Korea. The rooms are amazing with an elegant and modern design aesthetic. Don't forget to grab a bite to eat - the breakfast buffet is essentially a 5-star restaurant and the afternoon tea is superb. If you need time to recover from the long flight spend some time in the spa - which is insane with top notch staff.
For shopping, we recommend Gentle Monster & 10 Corso Como Seoul. Gentle Monster is a Korean brand for sunnies. Each boutique has a unique theme and doubles as an art gallery. It's the perfect place to harvest inspiration and we're completely obsessed.
10 Corso Como Seoul is located at 79 Cheongdam-dong, Gangnam-gu, Seoul, South Korea. This swanky cafe/bookstore/clothing boutique/designer oasis has stolen our hearts. It's always interesting and inspiring to see their products and collaborations. The interior design alone is reason enough to visit.
