Korea’s newest hot place is Starfield Hanam, recently opened September 9 of this year. Even before opening, Starfield Hanam was the talk of the town; with a size of 70 soccer fields, over 3 million people visited in its first month of operation.  

A multitude of shops are gathered in one building, making it easy to think of Starfield Hanam as just another shopping complex or mega-mall, but it is better called a “Shopping Theme Park.” Much like an amusement park that offers many fun rides for visitors to chose among, Starfield Hanam provides a shopping experience to match the unique tastes of all visitors. Inside the mall, visitors will find not only shopping spaces, but also fun and unique areas. With all the options, you are sure to find something that pleases you.  

(TIP) Check the Floor Guide when exploring!
 
Because of its large size, Starfield Hanam has information desks and floor guides available in Korean and English throughout the complex. The guides list the names and locations of shops from the basement level 1 through the fourth floor. With this map in hand, it’s easy to find what you’re looking for.
