I've read a few reviewers who said the prices were expensive and quality was not so good(???) Really?? Yes, you can spend a lot BUT you should have an idea what you want to pay for an item and comparison shop between the different vendors. Also, a lot of the items are from local designers (and Korean made - not... More

If you can't sleep at night and love shopping, this is a must-go place for you! I would say this give me a very similar experience to the ones in Bangkok. Do bargain!

The complex is massive with many different vendors inside. After a while everything starts to look the same and you find yourself overwhelmed with items. Mostly women's clothing, shoes, and accessories you will find here, but, many of the clothing is "one size fits all" which is ridiculous if you don't have the Asian figure. I found it to be... More

There were quite a few shopping malls there. One was like bangkok platinum mall, where there were 5 floors of stores. Mostly selling female clothing. Didnt really get to see much of male clothing. Didnt spend so much time there also as weather was super cold there.

When we visited on a Friday afternoon, we were surprised to find it quite empty. The things sold were quite pricey and language was a problem. Before of the low-traffic, the shopkeepers were either napping or playing with their phones...wasted our time going..

Place is filled with a lot of everything to shop for especially clothes. If you're a shopaholic, one day is NOT ENOUGH. The first time I came here I was overwhelmed by the place :), so I prepared a shopping list in my 2nd trip here. Made my life so much easier and I got what I wanted at a... More

A ton of shopping options everywhere in the area with a lively street market open at night. Clothes should cater to all ages though they aren't exactly cheap.

This place is filled with different types of shooed and malls for any budget. Most of the stores are right across the art hall. It's a great place to shop. This is another area where you can bargain for cheaper prices but only do this at the small shops, not at the shopping malls.
