Dongdaemun Market information
Take Seoul’s commercial pulse at this colossal retail and wholesale market. It sprawls across a wide area on both sides of the Cheong-gye-cheon. On one side is the multilevel Pyoung Hwa Clothing Market crammed with stalls selling wholesale clothing and accessories. The other side of the stream is Dongdaemun Shopping Complex , with a more eclectic range of goods, plus atmospheric food alleys .
The bargaining never stops. The wholesale clothing sections operate mainly through the night, but even during the day it’s a buzz to wander the network of buildings and streets. You can buy practically anything, although it’s mainly clothing that drags in the punters, though don't expect any high standard of fashion. And while there's plenty of bargains, you often need to buy in bulk.
