Hello, everyone! We are Creatrip, a group of travel experts.

Everyone should know that Seoul's business district always develops around the university. 

Therefore, the business districts such as Konkuk University, Hongik University, Ewha University and Shinchon are very developed and loved by many tourists.

Today, I would like to introduce another university business district that is popular among locals. 

The place is called "Sungshin Women's University Shopping District" which is also known as one of the three major women’s streets. 

If you want to get rid of the touristy places, come to Sungshin Women's University near Hyehwa for shopping!

Big cosmetic stores are also hiding in the lanes, and Xiaobian is so strolling. 

I feel that Sungshin Women's  University shopping street it similar to Konkuk University's shopping district, but there were not so many people here during the weekdays. 

If you want to feel the liveliness, it will be nicer to come during the holidays. .

Socks, costumes, small items, and cosmetics could be easily found around the street.

There are also several shoe stores like other business districts, and they offer many choices for those who want to buy Korean shoes.

There are lots of simple shops with cheap price. If you come here around noon on weekdays, have lunch around the district. 

Then after 2 or 3 o'clock, the stores will start to open. It will be more interesting to look around then. If you visit here too early, you can only see few store opened.

There is also a small area where you can buy cute phone cases. Many people who come to Korea wants to buy mobile phone cases, and here they are!

Also, it is at affordable price that I often buy 2-3 cases at a time.

There are a famous candle shop and fancy shop in the shopping street.

Art Box is one of the must-visit stores in Korea since they sell lots of adorable items at a cheap price!

Also, don't forget to stop by international snack outlet and buy some snack at a discounted price.

The advantages of the shopping street doesn't ends here. They also got many local attractions that the tourists are not so familiar with.

Palgong Tea is one of the hottest new milk tea brand in Korea, and they are very famous for its cheap price!

Besides Palgon Tea and many other nice cafes around the place, there are so many great restaurants where you can eat.
