Dongdaemun Market, Seoul: 17 reviews and 27 photos


The Great East Gate market. So whats really great about this market?
Well, lots ~ like all those who have been here. Its a mind boggling market selling anything from shoes to undergarments.

For me, its the SHOES!
I got my shoes from the shoes market (naturally). The price was soooooo good. A pair for 22000 won (after bargaining like a mad fool) which is about US$22.

You can easily get to this place by Subway
