  • If you go to Seoul, this is the place that you should visit as it is simply too iconic. HOWEVER, if you’re not interested in traditional stuff. and would rather see the very modern side of Seoul...

  • Dongdaemun Market is very recommended for all: kids, adult, elder, men, women, etc. Everything is in very acceptable range of price! You can find anything you are asking for. Just visit and you will enjoy^_^ The most important thing is the Korean food. It is very delicious.
  • Dongdaemun open market is located at 272 Jong-ro, Jung-gu, Seoul, Korea
