“Amazing place to Shop.”

Dongdaemun Design Plaza (DDP)
Ranked #47 of 860 things to do in Seoul
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 April 2018

This area is bustling and so lively at night. It is more of a wholesale market where people from all around the globe sell their stuff. The place has a array of shopping malls from luxury brands to locals ones selling souveniers. This is the place to buy local souveniers which are cute and cheap. I have attached the Business card of two such sellers from whom we bought cute Koreans nail clippers, magnets, ceramic items, mirrors and so on. There is also a Zara outlet in one of the mall which sells clothes at very good prices. If you are lucky you can find amazing clothes from Massimo Dutti at never imaginable prices at the same Zara outlet.
DDP is a must visit.

This is exotic and nice building, for sure. Made several shots of it. But inside... I was expecting something unusual inside as well, however there's only food and shops. Sometimes exhibitions.

In this plaza there is a exhibition hall, and fortunately I went there when Pixar had a big event on their 30th anniversary. I had a great time with my kids, watched all the history of Pixar and got more knowledge of how did they made animation movies such like Toy Story, UP, etc

Impressive place in terms of design but lacks an information counter or signages in English. Good to walk around if you have no agenda.

The Dongdaemun Design Plaza was amazing, i came here in the night and the lights make it more magical to see. Since the mall around here they open 24 hours so this area will be packed by tourist and local who shop.
