Right across the street from the JW Marriott, this gate is worth seeing but nothing else to commend it in the area.

One of the two largest gates in Seoul. It has a stone archway in the retaining wall linked to the city wall and a wooden pavillion was constructed on it. The metro station is very close by.

Nice Historical site of the old kingdom. There is a huge shopping area featuring 24hrs wholesale nearby. Tons of resturants and cafe nearby.

This gate is beautiful. Not much more to say actually. It is well preserved and looks good. But surrounded by modern buildings. Well worth passing by and take some pics of it.

You need to go underground to get here and there's nothing much other than the huge gate. But it's near Dongdaemun Market, Seoul Station and the newly opened Seoul Overpass. So swing by these places after a visit to this gate.

Very impressive at night all lit up. This is only one of the 8 gates of the city. Out of all the gates I've seen this and the Namdaemun are the most impressive. 10 minutes from the metro station. Head towards Doota, the Big Owl!...More

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
