By Subway Line 2 Exit 6 of Samsung Station, you can see the entrance of COEX Mall and SMTOWN coexartium.
11:00~22:00 (Museum ~21:30) • www.smtownland.com
It is a complex cultural space operated by SM Entertainment, one of the representative entertainment companies related to K-pop. It is a total of 5 floors and consists of media wall, gift shop, exhibition hall & experience space (charged) and theater.
This place is popular as a symbol of COEX recently, but it is not easy to enjoy reading quietly, so it is mainly used as a meeting place.
Fairs and Exhibitions
In fact, the main role of COEX is fairs and exhibitions. Various domestic and international events are held here.
(* COEX: Convention and Exhibition)
Starfield Coex Mall, Hyundai Department Store, Lotte Duty Free Shop, Parnas Mall and Oakwood Mall are connected to each other and there are about 1,100 stores.
Various events are frequently held using the wide sidewalk outside of COEX.
Where to eat?
There are many restaurants in the area below.
PARNAS Mall, Hyundai Department Store (10th Floor: Restaurants, Underground: Food Court, Snacks & Dessert), COEX Food Court (see photo) and its surroundings, Mega Box theater area.
However, some popular restaurants and cafes are scattered within the COEX mall, so it is a good idea to ask at the information desk.
When you want to get away from the complicated COEX, Bongeunsa across the street is a good solution.
Bongeunsa Temple is a representative temple of Zen Buddhism in Korea.
The predecessor of this temple is the Kyongseoungsa Temple, built in 794, and renamed Bongeunsa in 1592. Unfortunately, most of the buildings were destroyed by the Japanese Invasion of Korea and the Korean War, so most of the current buildings were rebuilt after that.
If you go inside the temple, you will feel more spacious than you thought.
Above all, the great charm of this temple is that you can probably see a unique view like photo above.
