Edae or Ewha Womans University vicinity is every teenage girl shopping haven. My age is nowhere near that of a teenager, or a budding University student. But I have read so much about getting bargains at this area. Hence, I needed to check it out the area.
There are a lot of street shopping, mainly frequently by students from the University. Yes ApM, the same shopping mall found in Dongdaemun, catering to youngsters is also here. The highlight is probably the shops in shopping street selling trendy clothes, shoes and accessories. All more suitable for the youngsters. Believe they are also more affordable then those in Myeongdong.
Walking along the street, we stopped at Ewha Womans University. Our curiosity grows as we see the huge University ground and decide to explore further. We were applaud by the combination of modern and colonial architecture style. The lush greenery reminds me of some of the older Universities in UK.
Ewha Womans University is one of the top University in Korea. Only for the ladies. But... but.. I thought University is place where you get to meet your potential life partner, or at least have a better avenue to meet friends of the opposite sex?
Would you believe that these are part of a University campus? I will probably be very motivated in my studies if I do study here!
It's definitely worth a visit to Ewha Womans University area. Even if it's not for shopping, but for some time to stroll around the University Campus is also a good experience.
