Sindorim-dong, Seoul, South Korea

Sindorim-dong is located in Guro-gu in Seoul, South Korea. It is primarily used as a transfer station between Line 1 and Line 2 in the southwest region of Seoul in Guro-gu. It makes this location highly convenient and accessible to live in and I was not disappointed with staying here for five nights for the first part of my trip in Seoul.

Connected to the subway station at Exit 2; is a large department store "Techno Mart" and a Korean supermarket "E-Mart" making purchasing goods and groceries very easy. Within the Techno Mart, there is a multiplex cinema showcasing Korean and foreign films, a floor with a wide range of restaurants, and each floor dedicated to a line of products like computers, cellphones, home furniture etc. On the roof was a Korean garden, it really was a place of tranquility and peacefulness.

Also newly opened is the D-Cube Shopping Centre on the other side of the station at Exit 1. It was actually featured on an episode of Running Man. At this shopping centre, you can find the latest fashion trends, foods, art center, Pororo Park, and the Sheraton Hotel. The basement features a food court with many different Korean dishes and other Asian cuisines.

The place I stayed at was a 10-15minute walk or a 2minute bus ride from the subway station exit 2 and is a relatively safe neighbourhood. Just watch out for the cars and scooters who frequently drive through red lights when crossing the street. Even after moving out, I found myself visiting the area many times, whether to eat, or to buy groceries at the E-Mart. It really has everything you need and now is more than just a transfer station.
