As one of the main streets in Itaewon, Itaewon 2-gil (Street) is a favorite shopping destination for international tourists. Over 1.4 kilometers long, the street is full of fascinating shops: from a tailor shop with over 40 years of history to shops selling colorful dresses, leather goods, and trendy imported wares. The area is particularly well known for its high-quality, reasonably-priced leather and fur goods. Its other major claim to fame is that it is the only place in Korea where customers can purchase large-sized clothing. Located across from the Hamilton Hotel are plenty of antique furniture shops and travel agencies. Foreign currency exchange counters can easily be found along most streets.
