  • 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.

  • Yes, the structure is stunning. Amazing architecture. Great atmosphere and lot's going on. However, expected more in terms of exhibitions. This changes throughout the year. Some boutique shops...

  • Dongdaemun design plaza is a visual treat as it’s architectural design is very innovative and impressive. There are so many cute things inside that you can experience. Some of them are free and some are not. The place is huge, it looks more good during night time as all the lights just lit up. Entrance fee is free. Parking lot fee 4000 kw/hr
  • The amazing architecture itself is worth the visit! I went for the Tim Burton exhibition here in June 2022 which is very well put together. I think there used to be some food trucks night market during the weekends but it stopped coz of the pandemic. Worth a visit!
