Coex Mall, Seoul Reviews

  • It's me, the only Foreigner who writes decent reviews in Korea. remember what they said in the movie Ocean's Eleven about the design of casinos? This mall is designed it exactly the same way. It's amazing. It's meant to keep you trapped inside so you spend all of your money. They don't have the funeral home in here. I'm sure they would install one if you would just promise to stick around long enough to spend all of your money and die here. it's actually a really good Paul though. Aside from the fact that there is no way you are going to find a way out. I have spent days and days in this mall collectively. Over the last five years I still don't have a good way to know where I am at any given point.

  • Coex is pretty good. The layout is terrible! But the movie theater is nice. We always go there for IMAX. There is a ridiculous number of restaurants to choose from, featuring a wide variety of cuisines. There are also some good shops. I love Christmas shopping at Aland in particular. The convention center is also very nice. I have only gone to Comic Con there, but I thought it clean, well-organized, and spacious. However, a warning: it is uncomfortably crowded on weekends, so try planning a weekday trip.

  • Just another mall in the world of malls. Compared to those in North America, this comes with a much better mix of food and places for husband and wife interests to diverge. The central bookstore is also a welcome respite once those feet start to hurt. Enjoy a coffee and pastry at A Twosome Place and relax.

  • A huge shopping mall. Many stores are out there. People who love shopping would love this place. You can spend the entire day hanging around.

  • So many stores, so little time! Layout of the mall can be confusing, but there is a very wide variety of shops for food, clothing, jewelry, electronics, books, and more. Also contains a very cool underground library and an aquarium, along with a movie theater. Great way to move from hotel to office to office during bad weather as well.
