The streets around Ewha Women University is a shopping haven for women. My friend told me when in Korea, one must shop around the universities. Those are the places where you will find the best bargain because Korean students are very good at looking trendy on a budget.

So on the fifth day of our South Korea trip, we took line 2 to Ewha Station and leave exit 2 or 3 and head straight. We were greeted by this scene as we exited the station.

The streets has its fair share of the usual Korean brand skin care and make up chains such as Face shop, Etude, Tony Moly, Holika Holika, etc. There is also a large department store in this area called “Yes APM” for shoppers who like the flagship feel.

We also spotted a lot of boutiques selling affordable girls clothing in different styles – mostly sweet and feminine but there’s also casual and hippie style.

There’s also this huge lifestyle store called Kosney just opposite the entrance of ewha, and marked by a huge pink high-heel structure. Great photo-op here!

10,000 won bags but mostly “made in China”

I had fun browsing through these bargains on rack (from 5,000 won and above).

We wander onto the back streets. Most of the shops here small and crammed but we had fun exploring them.

Since we were so near to Ewha Women University, how could we missed out its beautiful compound and architecture? It is one of the best-known universities in South Korea, also considered to be one of the top universities in Korea.

The university houses a Ewha Campus Complex (Basement level 6 – 1st Floor) which is Korea’s largest underground campus. The lower levels contain a library, bookstore, gym, movie theater, cafes, and other cultural facilities, while on the first level visitors can find lecture rooms and an eco-park.

One if the most popular street snack in Ewha area got to be this – gye ran bbang (egg bread). It tasted quite good! The bread is sweet and fluffy, almost similiar to chiffon cake and there’s a cooked egg in the middle of the bread. Great combination!

Streets around Ewha Women University is a really good shopping area for young and cute girls. If you are planning to get plenty of accessories and trinkets, then this is the place to go to.

    Hi! Love reading your posts :) Really helpful for my upcoming trip to Seoul! Just wanted to ask for your opinion:

    If I have limited time in Seoul for shopping and had to choose between Edae and the Express Bus Terminal underground shopping center which would you recommend?
