Great shopping!

A great place not far from the city center for shopping clothes. A wide range of quality and styles Recommended for a rainy day in Seoul.

I went twice at night and proceeded straight to Doota shopping mall. No bargaining allowed in this mall and the items are not cheap, but I still managed to find some nice items here. At B2 of the mall, you can get tax refund by cash if you use your credit card as guarantee. However, you will still need to... More

There are lot of malls around selling things like clothings, shoes, bags, accessories and many more. Lots of styles to choose from but some of the products are quite pricy. Think and choose carefully before buying. It is possible to bargain on the price. Some of the retailers can speak english, chinese and japanese, so it is easy to communicate.

A vast array of shopping centers and markets. A few upmarket malls, others mostly sell the same stuff. Coupled with the cool weather, the roadside food stalls are perfect for satisfying the tired and hungry shopper.

Wholesale market! Shoes, underwear, socks, bags, belts, food, moneychanger. Just think before you agree to buy- price conversion gets difficult at times. If shopping is not your thing-Then you have the historical gate and riverwalk to cover.

Lots and lots of fabrics and fashion materials one could imagine. It's like a maze. You could spend a day in there without knowing the time.

There are plenty of shopping there but some of the wholesale centre are more suitable for elderly. The ones that are more suitable for young people opens at 8pm so do take note. Dota is nice but the things are pricey.

Dongdaemun is more hip. Different from Namdaemun, Myeongdong, etc. You can see this in the type of shops and alot of young people hanging around here. Quite a fair bit of mini concerts were going on - esp singing. Pretty cool to look at. You get usual street food and restaurants here. Nice place to come and experience.

The choices for fashion items are just overwhelming. The food choices are not as good as the other places. Nice and cheaper place to buy souvenir items though.

There were lots of street food to explore, mini concerts outside of the mall, and just overall walking and shopping marathon! My best friend and her husband just touched down that evening from Melbourne and that was the first place we went to, together with me and my husband. Knowing that most of the malls closes at 2.30am and some... More

Staying in Dongdaemun / Sindangdong

Neighborhood Profile
Dongdaemun / Sindangdong
For shopping enthusiasts, Dongdaemun is a must visit. Enormous shopping centers – stacked with multiple levels of boutique and independent shops – offer the latest in Korean fashion, cosmetics, accessories, and other goods while prices are relatively low. The night shopping (between late night and early morning) is particularly well known here, making Dongdaemun a place where you can literally shop until you drop. If fashion isn't what you’re looking for, the long-running wholesale markets nearby sell everything from cloth to utensils at lower prices. The rows of food stalls that set up at night ensure shoppers get refueled, and foodies will enjoy checking out nearby Sindang-dong’s Tteokbokki Town as well as some non-Korean offerings from the Central Asian Village near Dongdaemun.
