Dongdaemun (large east gate) Market is one of if not the best market within Seoul, especially at night.
You can’t go wrong with the majority of the stalls and shops here – Tteokboki, kimchi, pancakes, noodles, seafood and yang yeom tong-dak (Korean fried chicken) are all fantastic.
Lots of the stalls will look very ‘same same’ after a lap or two of the market, so my advice would be to take in the sights and smells, before deciding where you’d like to sit down.
Fresh fruit, pancakes and some drinks/juices were a nice way to top off the visit.
The nearby river is a great route to walk along back to the Myendong area – You will find the area where lots of Korean shows have shot featured scenes there too!
It is similar to the market of Uzbekistan.
Apparel products are global.
Great for shopping
Where there are always a lot of people! ^-^
Dongdaemun Station Exit 9
It is convenient because it is directly connected.
What type do you need in advance?
I like to think about it.
There are many different types, so it is better than I originally intended to buy
This is where I always buy more. ^-^
So peaceful and relax town..best destination to visit👍
Traditional sartorial market full of life and “locals”. It’s an outlet into the life of Korean tailors. I recommend taking a walk in the market, or if you know the language buying good quality tailored clothes. There is no food here, if you are looking for it, go to the market ahead.
If you love handicrafts, this is the place for you
There are so many shops that you can’t see them all even if you stay all day.
Nice market, lots to see and delicious food.
