Itaewon is a shopping heaven mainly for overseas tourists. The prices here are good but not as good as Namdaemun or Tongdaemun. Most storeowners speak a few languages and bargaining is a must.

     Itaewon has everything from souvenirs to leather jackets to fake Rolex watches. There are many stores in the back alleys that also have great deals, so if you find an alley that looks a little scary, I'd go check it out because there's probably a great deal a few meters away.

Location: From Itaewon intersection to Itaewon Hotel
