Beauty enthusiast and bloggers swear to it that it's a must today to visit South Korea if you're into beauty and fashion products. Technically, it's makeups, skin care goods and apparels are the best in the market. A lot of tourists in the past few years explore the city for its scenery and food, although the lists go longer actually.

Seemingly, Korean idols brought the house down with their looks and fashion in the past years. Apparently, they already stormed U.S. and other countries along with their pretty skin and shining appearance. Remarkably, Emma Stone is currently in limelight for using one of South Korea's lip mask brand before 2017 Golden Globes. It's one of the most notable products local Korean artists themselves use.

With regards to visiting South Korea, and storming their beauty shops, Tripadvisor gives the best advice where to go and what to buy. Starting with affordable buys, Sinchon Ladies Street offering all-women items tops the list. The place is near Ewha and Yonsei University, it's divided into two districts but the shopping attraction is near Ewha's. There are a lot to see there from really cheap shoes, clothing, bags, and accessories.

For cosmetic products, Myeongdong is the finest destination. Notably, it caters affordable to upscale shoppers. All the international brands such as Adidas, H&M, Nike and others are also accessible in this area. However, people are literally going to the location to buy authentic The Face Shop, Etude House, Skin Food, Nature Republic, and more beauty goodies. Incredibly, all of them can really be considered as Paris' beauty brands rival.

Some more notable shopping districts are in Insadong, Yonsan, Dongdaemun, and Gangnam. Lastly, if travelers are already done with going around spending money, there places to see to get acquainted with South Korea's history and culture. There are always the Gyeongbokgung Palace, Shinsegae Food Stalls, Itaewon's museums, and more. Indeed, Korea should on any traveler's bucket list for 2017.
