Dong Dae Mun Market

Who doesn’t love shopping? I certainly do.

Dong Dae Mun market is a place that attracts many shoppers especially fashion fanatics. Dong Dae Mun market, which is located in Jongno-gu, Seoul, South Korea, is not just a small building, but an estate.  Dong Dae Mun market is the largest wholesale and retail shopping district and showcases a variety of things for us to shop.

I remembered my friend who went crazy over a Korean shop where he bought a lot of caps, approximately 15 if I’m not mistaken, each of different colors and designs. He spent only about SGD 50 on snapbacks as it is cheaper if you buy them in bulk.  They are basically wholesalers. However, not all of the shops there are wholesale, mostly are located in Section 2(on the map).

Oh! I forget to mention that the shopping malls there opened from 10am to 5am the next morning, awesome right ? I know it totally is. There are also many events going on around the malls everyday at around 7-8pm KST(Korean Standard Time). There are also many money exchangers around thus not needing to bring extra won with you.

Basically the whole Dong Dae Mun market is a must visit and must buy area.

Dong Dae Mun market can be reached very easily just take the subway! Look for Dong Dae Mun station and take that line. If I didn’t remember wrongly I took line 4.

Do leave your comment below on what are the stuffs you’ll definitely buy when you’re there ?
I’ve bought a handful of items, 2 caps, 5 t-shirts, 4 rings, 1 necklace, 2 pants and 3 pair of shoes. Although they’re not branded but they’re of nice quality and it’s comfortable to wear.
