          Samseongdong / COEX
          A large business hub, Samseongdong is anchored by
          Korea’s World Trade Center, where many important
          business exhibitions and meetings are held. The
          enormous COEX mall sprawls underground, providing a
          myriad of things to do and see, including a large
          aquarium and movie theater. For a bit of peace and
          zen, head over to the ornate Bongeunsa Temple which is
          one of Korea’s most important places of worship. Or
