Come here and prepare a lot of money if you are into shopping. It's all about shopping here and there! I did have a great time here and got some nice sweaters since I came in winter!!

I think Dongdaemun is overrated... The malls are floors and floors of rows and rows of nearly identical clothes. Now that I think about it, It's quite similar to Platinum mall in Bangkok. The clothes styles were not to my liking, the quality isn't great, and the prices aren't very cheap! You have to bargain..once you find something you like,... More

If you love shopping then add this to your must-do list. Koreans DO NOT SLEEP. I’m not going to lie, it was a little overwhelming. The area was just so huge that it took us a good 3 nights to fully explore and shop. They are open super late, had super cheap clothes and souvenir items for sale (some knock-offs),... More

Dongdaemun is a huge area with many buildings selling mainly clothes for ladies. The few buildings often visited by travelers are: 1. Lotte FITIN: my favorite, it even provides free wifi. You can process your Global Tax Refund on 8th floor, that will save you some time in the airport. 2. Good Morning City: not many shops open. There is... 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.
