Flower city - Seoul

Flower city

Flower City Other Shopping Info Review

A collection of greenhouses near the AT Center, south of Yangjae.

Individual sellers are located in booth areas inside the greenhouses, each specializing in one or many different species of flower.

Prices are good, and there is room to bargain.

Located beside (south of) AT Center, in Yangjae, near the Hyundae/Kia headquarters.

It is now a short taxi ride south of Yangjae station on orange line subway, but there will be a subway stop located at AT Center when the new Bundang/Gangnam subway line opens shortly.

Theme: Flowers

Technomart

TechnoMart: Electronics and fun!

TechnoMart is a large shopping center, which has a shopping mall, discount stores, and a total of more than 2,000 electronic shops located from the 1st to 8th floor. You can purchase electronic products, computers, sound systems, communication equipment, CDs and much more. Each floor specialises in it's own product.

On the B2 floor there is also a large Lotte Mart department/grocery store where you can shop for clothes, groceries, home appliances, food and snacks at a reasonable price.
Above the 8th floor are many affordable restaurants and entertainment options.
On the 10th floor there is a CGV movie theater with a total of 2,000 seats. Also, a Dairy Queen! The only one I've seen in Korea; was nice to be able to get a peanut-buster parfait! :)
There is also a viewing area next to the restaurants, where you can go outside onto the roof and take in the view of Hangang.

Open at 10am.
Electronics stores close at 8pm, restaurants closed at 9pm, CGV cinema open late for movies.

***
Be aware: TM is closed every second and 4th Tuesday of the month.

What to pay: Items can be purchased at a 10-20 % lower price compared to other shops in Seoul.
You can haggle prices here. The better you are, the better the discount!
Shop around, too. The shops farthest away from the escalators offer the best prices...

Address: 546-4 Guui-dong, Gwangjin-gu, Seoul

Directions: Exits # 1 and 2 of Gangbyeon Subway Station (Seoul Subway Line No. 2) are connected to the B1 Floor of Techno Mart.
