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

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.

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.
