If you have kids and love shopping, this is a great venue for both of you. The aquarium is right there, as are games and food courts .
The center is big. But overall very similar to other exhibition center. It has Wifi but with difficulty to get connected sometime, especially during peak hour and the speed is a bit slow. The COEX mall at underfloor was closed for renovation during my visit. So can just stayed inside if feel bored during meeting.
The conference I attended was in Coex center which also has a mall in the basement. One can spend a whole day loitering around in this place and it is bang in the middle of the city where all the action is.
The mall was on havey renovation but from the stores i saw it was nothing special. There are much better streens in gangdum to visit

COEX isn't very interesting but it is being refurbished - presumably back to its former glory. The Kim Chi museum is good but max 20 mins. The kind of place you go one to say you've been. Try the massive Times Square shopping complex off Yeongdeungpo station instead,it's so much better. It's huge, has all kinds of shops at every... More
The department store connected to the Lotte Hotel is MUCH nicer than this mall! The shops are small and have nothing special. It was a waste of time in Seoul. Women who want to check out fashion - go elsewhere! We happened to run into another disappointed tourist who also couldn't find anything interesting. Also, this mall has little for... More
