Tour: Dongdaemun Night Market

Dongdaemun offers one of the most well-known night fashion shopping districts in Asia. During this tour, we will visit Section 2 wholesalers. It is interesting to see how all this activity takes place at the same time. There is a life of its own in the thick of the night.
Most shops are open until 5:00 in the morning! There are plenty of eateries so we can re-energize during our shopping hours.
