My very first day in Myeongdong was quite overwhelming. Sooo many shops, restaurants, hotels, parks, etc. There are sooo many things to do and places to visit (and I haven't even explored all of South Korea yet)!
My mama bear and I chose to stay at the Hotel Ibis Ambassador in Myeongdong, which is in a PRIME location for shopping. If you LOVE skincare and makeup like I do, Myeongdong is absolute HEAVEN! When traveling, some people have a strict itinerary of places to visit. On the other hand, some people just choose to wander wherever their heart takes them (and that's EXACTLY what my mama bear and I did).
We walked into the nearest Lotte World department store building and then found ourselves in an underground shopping mall. We took some random stairwell leading us back up the main roads and saw the Deoksugung Palace nearby. The lush nature surrounding the palace grounds is simply beautiful and it's a perfect place to take some lovely photos.
My first impression of South Korea so far? The city is extremely clean. Walkways and roads are clear of any litter and in fact, public trash cans are very rare. As for the people? They're just as face-paced as the city itself.
After sharing a yakiniku set for lunch, mama bear and I retired from our long adventure and headed back to the hotel for some much needed rest.
