Day 8 of South Korea Trip 2016

In the morning, we had a delicious buffet breakfast at the hotel and went to Kukkiwon in the afternoon to buy some more taekwondo gear and merchandise at one of the nearby shops. One of the popular brands for taekwondo stuff is Mooto so we went to the Mooto shop to buy some equipment and t-shirts. The quality is comparable to Adidas and sometimes the design is nice.

After that, we went to Majang Meat Market for some more amazing beef barbecue.

Our day wasn’t yet over. It was time to go to shopping in Dongdaemun. It’s another great shopping area, featuring a street market as well as several department stores – all within walking distance of each other. My wife was happy to find some nice clothes and other things for herself and also her friends and family back home. It was quite a productive shopping excursion but at the end of it all, we had our appetites back so we went to Chicken Kyochon. There is a branch in Dongdaemun on 50-3 Cheongnyangri-dong. South Korea has developed a reputation for having some of the best fried chicken in the world. That’s no joke. Anyway, the chicken there was very crispy and full of flavour and the craft beer was pretty good too! We ended the night with full stomachs! 🙂
