For shopping enthusiasts, Dongdaemun is a must visit.
Enormous shopping centres – stacked with multiple
levels of boutique and independent shops – offer the

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
