  Seoul - Dongdaemun
by ant1606
 
 

Dongdaemun district, literally "east big gate", is one among several shopping areas, particularly for clothing.
Modern multistory buildings have stores carrying any sort of outfit you may look for.
As any place in Seoul, space is precious and even the stadium is converted into a parking lot!
Department stores are the cleanest and neatest ever seen, altough price level is not different from that of western countries. Do not expect bargains here.
Apart from indoor shopping there are lines of street-market style stands selling brand-alike stuff which can be conveniently priced if you have time to search through the merchandise.
