I could happily have spent all day in the mall which sells fabrics. There is a fantastic range of all types of material, as well as haberdashery, bedding, soft furnishings, even rugs. If you love to sew this is the place to go.

I did not find anything great at this market but can be explored. The Hyundai city outlet and doota duty free near to the complex are also good options.

Dongdaemun / Sindangdong
For shopping enthusiasts, Dongdaemun is a must visit.
Enormous shopping centres – stacked with multiple
levels of boutique and independent shops – offer the
latest in Korean fashion, cosmetics, accessories, and
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

For souvenir items, I suggest you go to Namdaemun Market instead. Their prices are cheaper and have a lot more to offer.
