Dongdaemun-gu and Jong-gu at Crossroads
This is a view where Southward is Dongdaemun Station, Eastward is Jongnu 5-ga, Westward is Toegaero and Northward is going towards Myeongdong and Namdaemun!
One of the oldest zebra crossings of Seoul - I first saw it in 2002 .
This place will take you to Mongolian and Russian neighborhoods, hightest number of pharmacies are here and so is the shopping malls. Night market of Seoul starts from 8:00p.m to 5am every day. The main supplier of all the fashion apparel comes from here. Biggest wholesale market of Seoul is also this place!
The latest landmark - Dongdaemun Design Plaza aka DDP is also here.
Crammed printing presses and men - laboring hard, riding rickshaw-style three wheelers can also be seen here!
One of the oldest economic hubs for a common man since the Japanese rule!
