Shopping is for some a passion and an addiction and others a chore and possibility a nightmare, but for both the Coex Shopping Mall in Seoul in my opinion can provide relieve and joy. Located in the glamorous area of Gangnam, Seoul the Coex mall includes something to fill all shopping needs from music to clothes to of course technology (it’s in Korea), there are also the normal section of fast food restaurants, coffee shops as well as more luxury eateries. There is also a Casino (foreigners only), an aquarium, a cinema and a Kimchi Museum.

The main reason I visit is for the Apple store and service center (more details here), you can buy apple products in other places in Seoul however in my experience Coex is the best place to go simply because if you have a problem the sales person will bend over backwards to help you out and it’s all in the same place. Plus they speak strong English.

More Information: The map here shows the huge size of the place and more information can be found on their website: http://coex.co.kr/eng/index.asp
