Shopping in Seoul

Seoul is a shopper's paradise. Insomniacs and bargain hunters alike can shop 24 hours in the sprawling Dongdaemun Market. The fun and bustling Namdaemun Market keeps more civilized hours, as do the multi-storey department stores and shopping malls (mostly around 9am-7pm). Away from the city's many open marketplaces, fashion lovers have plenty of browsing opportunities in Myeongdong, Idea-ap and Shinchon (the university district), Apgujeong's Rodeo Street, and the boutiques in Gangnam.
