I would suggest to tourist to come here for shopping. You can get everything at reasonable price (Korea costly than China). Make sure you do some negotiation here. This complex is open for late night. Also if you need branded things than Lotte store is just beside this complex.

I interested in night shopping there the place are full of tourist, the prices are not very cheap but you can find some bargains on clothes and accessories. Doota is luxury shopping center but there are multi stories shopping centers are cheaper. If you are shopaholic don't miss it al least once to experience the trendy Korean fashion.

First time go to South Korea - Seoul, i search first about Dongdaemun market and i expected it will be street market but the reality is not street market and just open until 09:00 PM (South Korea - Seoul Time). Maybe Should go there from morning or around 10:00 AM (South Korea - Seoul Time).

This is the world's largest fabric and clothing material market. You can buy the latest fabrics in Korea. They also sell accessories, bedding and hanboks here. Many vendors selling similar products... so shop around and compare the price.

I go to Doota Shopping complex, it's luxury shopping mall. You may check their latest Korean designer and also international brand inside that building, food court at basement and some small restaurant at 3rd and 4th floor, Don't worry, watches and cosmetics available at 4th and 5th floor.

There are a lot of shops that look similar or sell the same products:- - winter jackets (what else when you go in November) - winter fashion (a little mumsy fashion wise) - winter accessories - bags and luggage Prices are good, and bargain-able.

Staying in Dongdaemun / Sindangdong

Neighbourhood Profile
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 fashion isn't what you’re looking for, the long-running wholesale markets nearby sell everything from cloth to utensils at lower prices. The rows of food stalls that set up at night ensure shoppers get refueled, and foodies will enjoy checking out nearby Sindang-dong’s Tteokbokki Town as well as some non-Korean offerings from the Central Asian Village near Dongdaemun.
