My ultimate favourite place for buying all sorts of beautiful fabric, charms and notions other than Nippori Fabric Town in Tokyo. Most shops are open by 10+am and take orders for collection at 1pm or 5pm. Many shops accept minimal orders of 1 yard though...More

This place is for shopaholics who love bargain sales. We were able to buy a lot from this place and good quality products especially if it's made in Korea. We will visit this place when we go to Seoul again 😊😏👏

Another shopping mall with luxury brands that will cost you an arm and a leg. If your wife wants another expensive bag or you want an expensive bag then come here.

Another overrated with tourists shopping place in Seoul. Not much of a big deal but you'll be more convenient to get all the skincare/cosmetic brands around. Good for shoppers.

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.
