What you'll do

Dongmyo Market has been the go-to place for people for a long time. However, since its appearance in the popular TV show, where the pop idol G-Dragon of Big Bang appeared, the population of Dongmyo became the go-to shopping destination. It is Now a not-so-secret hidden spot for young fashionistas seeking unique vintage items on low budgets. Also, the hundreds of cheap-eats in this neighborhood offers are definitely a plus. Hundreds of sellers come out every morning with various second-hand products, which range from unusual antiques to nice vintage clothes all at affordable prices. Lucky shoppers may be able to find vintage designer brand items — Chanel, Gucci, and Louis Vuitton—that are not easily found. You can conveniently shop at second-hand stores located around the area, but the real charm of the shopping at Dongmyo is in the flea market, where clothes are transported from outside via cranes to form vast aisles of selection. Next, we will move to the DDP (Dongdaemun Design Plaza) which is one of the most popular places for taking pictures. At the end of our journey, we will have time to enjoy night view at Dongdaemun Seonggwak Park. You can see a perfect view of the city skyline and the old castle. Then I will take you to Dongdaemun station (line 1&4) Are you starting to like the sound of this? All you need to do is follow my lead!

Justin

Hello! My name is Justin! I really like to meet tourists from around the world and talk to them. I have traveled to over 25 countries, so I feel comfortable meeting anyone from anywhere. Learning about all the people who I've met on my travels was a precious experience for me. Now, I run a tour company that introduces Korean culture and life to people who visit Korea. I love introducing newcomers to all the amazing things Korea has to offer! I have met more than 200 tourists, and everyone who explores the city with me seems to really enjoy it. I think the most important thing about showing people around is the guide's sincerity. So that makes me a perfect fit, since I love this city and want to introduce everyone to it. I will do my best to make your trip magic.
