With a few dozen malls, 30,000 specialized shops, and 50,000 manufacturers all centered around a landmark gate, Dongdaemun Market combines traditional and modern shopping. Home to the biggest clothing suppliers in the country, the market offers textiles, clothes, wedding wear, shoes, and accessories in addition to electronics, toys, and food. Shop until you drop and get some really good clothing bargains. Wholesalers come at night to pick up the latest fabrics, making this sleepless district bustle until early in the morning.

Much more fun than expected. Great food. Proper cultural experience. Spicy rice cake, pan cake, live octopus, raw beef, soup dumplings, brown sugar pan cake
Traditional Street market. Mainly Food and clothing for sale. If you like crowds, you must be there between 12 to 4pm on a weekend.
