So we've seen the less expensive, trend setting markets at Dongdaemun and the mid-range shopping mecca that is Myeongdong; now it's time to check out the high class boutiques and designer stores scattered around Apgujeong.
Popular with celebrities, this upscale district is not for the tight-fisted. The two main department stores; Galleria and Hyundai; both stock high end luxury goods including Chanel, Prada, Valentino and Gucci. In the streets, boutiques stock high end ranges such as Jill Stuart and APC.
Like Gangnam, it's also renowned for the amount of plastic surgery clinics and hair & makeup salons.
