Be aware that the rooms are extremely small and one of the rooms we rented did not even have a window in the room or the bathroom which is a safety issue. The rooms were clean they had Wi-Fi on the second floor however, the...More
Hotel tong vivace is heaven sent for wholesalers like me. It's just walking distance to the famous Dongdaemun fashion wholesale district. However, u must print the pictures on their website because it contains instructions on how to find the place. When u alight from the...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
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.
