“East Gate shopping area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2013

The Gate itself is called the East Gate but it does seem out of place since the roads pretty much cut right beside it.

The area however is a big shopping area with malls above and below ground there is also a shoe market right beside the gate.

“Traditional Seoul”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

This is one of the places we always take visitors to Seoul.
East Gate has new security but is in need of renovation. Similar, but smaller than the great South Gate. The shopping in this area, above and below ground is fantastic, and this is a good place to see a portion of Cheonggyecheon River. The tourist hotel opposite the gate is not quite up to international standards. The new culture center should be complete soon.

“Largest wall gate in Seoul”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012

This is the second largest gate in Seoul, and the largest city wall gate. Loacated currently in the middle of an intersection it seems out of place (as cars zoom past it and people sell junk from stalls down the street) because of its beauty and size. It is larger than most buildings in the area (all bu the skyscrapers)
