Seoul Metropolitan Government has published a shopping guidebook that introduces famous shopping venues all over Seoul, including well-known department stores in downtown Seoul and small shops hidden in alleys, and the hit products of leading cosmetics brands in Korea.

The『SEOUL & SHOPPING』guidebook will also serve as a guide which introduces famous shopping places and popular items of products to foreign tourists, and in particular, will provide practical information for tourists who are coming for the Seoul Summer Sale, which starts at the end of June.
『SEOUL & SHOPPING』introduces 64 hit products of Korean cosmetics brands, with the focus on Myeong-dong, and also presents popular shopping venues and products in Seoul, including Cheongdam-dong, Apgujeong, Garosu-gil, Hongik University, traditional markets and so on.
