Aside from Migliore and Doota, which are well-known by tourists, there is a huge wholesale market in Dongdaemun, the mecca of fashion.
As the largest wholesale apparel market in Korea, Dongdaemun Wholesale Apparel Market comprises various markets, including Pyeonghwa Market, New Pyeonghwa Market, Jeil Pyeonghwa Market and Cheongpyeonghwa Market, formed by displaced people who settled in South Korea during the Korean War.
Here, you can see traces of the past—from the visibly old buildings of Pyeonghwa Market and Tongil Market which retain their original architecture to all the merchants who have been doing business in the same place for a long period of time.
You can also take a break from shopping at the nearby Cheonggyecheon Stream along the market.
Dongdaemun Wholesale Apparel Market was designated as Seoul Future Heritage for its future value, and there are nine other Seoul Future Heritage sites nearby, including Gwangjang Market and Old Books Street.
