The market is consist of out of date fashion and clothing but the price is cheaper than other location in surrounding area.

Many floors with shops selling low/mid end clothes, accessories, etc. Don't expect much in designs nor quality. Every other shop sells about the same thing.
Unless you are looking for such items, skip this place. Pretty boring.
Dongdaemun is very different from other shopping streets...More
Will need a good 1/2 day to cover this place.
Try to visit here early of the day like 10 am onward.
1st round we came around 5 - 6 pm-ish and most of the shops for apparel are closed for the day. And we...More
Be prepared to walk through corridors of shops. You will never cover everything as there are few levels of shops in this huge market. You will find shops selling all kinds of hats, ready-to-wear suits, sport-wears, dresses, swim-suits, etc. Most shop assistants don't speak English...More
This market is right across the street from the JW Marriott Hotel that we stayed at. My daughter-in-law went shopping there at 11:00 p.m. and had a wonderful time. The only problem is that you have to find room in your suitcase for everything you...More

This is a big building with kinda open plan stalls. The entrance/exit is on either side of the building via glass doors, easy to miss. I was trying to figure out how these people survive - they all sell similar or identical products. I got...More

Dongdaemun / Sindangdong
For shopping enthusiasts, Dongdaemun is a must visit. Enormous shopping centres – stacked with multiple levels of boutique and independent shops – offer the latest in Korean fashion, cosmetics, accessories, and other goods while prices are relatively low. The night shopping (between late night and early morning) is particularly well known here, making Dongdaemun a place where you can literally shop until you drop. If
fashion isn't what you’re looking for, the long-running wholesale markets nearby sell everything from cloth to utensils at lower prices. The rows of food stalls that set up at night ensure shoppers get refueled, and foodies will enjoy checking out nearby Sindang-dong’s Tteokbokki Town as well as some non-Korean offerings from the Central Asian Village near Dongdaemun.
