It’s definitely worth seeing and walking around the exterior of this building but it wasn’t worth paying 10,000 Won to visit the museum inside. There wasn’t much in the museum and it featured some drawings, paintings, and hanboks. There was a gift shop in the...More

What a fantastic idea. So much creativity to see and on the day we went, there was an African food market. Typical Seoul to always be thought provoking and creative. Great coffee shop inside if you need to shelter from the heat (or cold) too.

This is the place where Seoul Fashion Week is conducted and it sits near the famous Dongdaemun Shopping Area. The building is contemporarily artsy and most people come here to take pictures on the photogenic spots.

Besides the beautiful architecture of the DDP (we have not visited the galleries), the highlight is the LED rose garden which looked so beautiful at night! A must visit when in Seoul!

Very artistic and very big but very interesting. Lots of things happening inside, even if you didn’t want to do anything it’s just nice to be there and enjoy the scenery. Lots of shopping opportunities. Love Seoul.

The only cool thing about this place is the design of the plaza and the rose led garden so go at night to see it lit up. Shopping is the same as everywhere else. I like Namdaemun market more than Gwangjang market because the street...More

The rose garden will always be open. But for malls you can check with some local. I am assuming it will be shut

Take Seoul metro line no 2, no 4 or no 5. Get off at "Dongdaemum History & Culture Park" station, Exit no 1., just few minute walk.

Yes, you can do it. The places inside are close, some of the restaurants are open I think until 8 pm.
