    Good place to spend some time. They have exibition inside on design themes. We saw street vendors setup outside which was a good way to spend time.

    A lot of different shops that the tourists must find something fit for themselves. The price was very reasonable and you can negotiate for more discount.

    Worth a stop if you are in the area or really into history. Don't make a special trip. You need ten minutes at the most to walk around it and take photographs. There is a small information board in English too with some facts.

    This should be one of your stops when visiting Seoul as you'll be able to absorb both modern and cultural experiences within walking distance of each other. It's easy to get here by subway. Once you exit, you'll be greeted with an amazing building that looks like a spaceship has landed in the middle of Seoul. Tons of activities to do here from shopping to local night markets.

    Hundreds of vendors with a huge diversity of product in one compact building on multiple floors. Great place to outfit a wardrobe for a makeover, new career, or new season.

    mall is pretty average. bought some staff from Olive & Young at basement but there is a bigger stand alone Olive & Young stall just a short walk (less than 5mins) away

    also has an intereating panda exhibit if you're into pandas at the entrance (not sure if permanent of temporary)

    Immersive experience. One can borrow an audio guide in English from the ticket office for free. Make sure you synchronize the audio tape with the shows. Three shows. High quality and affordable souvenirs. Take your time to enjoy - I spent 2 hours there - 3 shows included. Tips: some drawings talk, when out at floor 11 have a look to the buildings around, phones charging is free at the cafe.

    Personal opinion: for a more rewarding experience do your homework: read about life and work of the artists.

    Last minute decision to pay a visit, since we finished shopping at Dongdaemun. Walked over to this Teddy bear Teseum, the tickets over the counter were more expensive compare to klook and trazy. Ended up, I booked via klook and got an instant confirmation. We went to the mirror maze first which personally I think is waste of money, it was the kids who begged for it. The mirror maze was small and easily completed it within 10 mins. As for the Teddy bear museum, it is bigger than what I thought and I enjoyed it much more. It was a waste that we entered the place at 6pm and it closed at 7pm and hence we were in a rush.

    Tried to get to this market two times in our holiday and each time was a hit and miss. We either came at the wrong times as they open at midnight for handbags which are located on B1, the wrong day as they are closed on a Saturday evening and finally we just gave up. I'm sure that it would have been a great place to have gotten handbags as recommended in other reviews. But just be aware, it is not easy to find the place. It is located at the back to the Maxtyle building that is on the main road of Dongdaemun and the entry is abbreviated to NPH.

    A mall full of clothing, fashion accessories, handphone casing, luggage bags, hand bags and a stationary shop. There is an arcade too. Tax refund is avaiable.

    I went through this multi-storey mall on my way to Megabox at Dongdaemun. They sell lots of clothes and bags. The bags are mostly fake designer bags. I did not go there for shopping.

    This is considered the biggest wholesale clothing market in Korea. The exterior building looks old compared to nearby Doota shopping mall. Most of the shops are selling the same products, typically low to mid end clothes, etc. I just passed by while exploring Dongdaemun.
