Fodor's Review

Seoul's largest market can be overwhelming for the first time visitor. Consisting of over 20 shopping malls and 30,000 shops, it is a sprawling indoor and outdoor area spread over multiple blocks. Different sections of Dongdaemun cater to different clienteles. Gwangjang Market offers an assortment of street food, while the north-south axis of the market, Hegunginmunno Street, houses clothing and accessory shops for Seoul's teens and 20-somethings. The new Dongdaemun Design Plaza at the west end of the market houses galleries and a small museum. While not as easy to navigate as the Namdemun Market, for those with more time in Seoul, Dongdaemun makes for a lively afternoon.

Shop until you drop

There are so so so so so many different clothing, shoe, jewelry, skin care shops here. You could literally shop for hours there are so many shops. Before coming here i knew that Korea was known for having amazing skin care products and they really do have a variety of different skin care products. I probably bought way more than i should but i couldnt help it!
