Formerly known as “Heunginjimun,” Dongdaemun Gate used to be one of the four main gates leading into the capital city, Seoul, and has long since been the symbol of the Dongdaemun area. The Seoul Folk Flea Market in Sinseol-dong (near Dongdaemun) is a large flea market selling daily use items, folk crafts, local produce, and traditional snacks. It’s a popular tourist destination for visitors wanting to experience the traditional Korean marketplace atmosphere.
Right next to the Dongdaemun Market is Cheonggyecheon Stream. Unexpected natural beauty in the heart of the city, the pathway that runs along the stream gives citizens a great place to take a walk or just relax. The stream is adorned with colorful stops such as the Fashion Plaza, the Wall of Culture (murals), light shows, and fountains. There is even a stage that hosts a number of events throughout the seasons. In recent years, Cheonggyecheon Stream has become one of the most beloved places in Seoul.
