Travel Note – Seoul Day 5 – Dongdaemun market

Friday, 2 August 2013

It’s another shopping day for me in Seoul. I went to Myeongdong area again. So I won’t write about that part of shopping anymore.

I read about super copy bags from Korea in one of the Vogue forums. There are so many bags sellers in almost every shopping areas in Seoul. There are some that has a good enough quality but most of them are a total sad knock off.

Here are some photos of the knock off bags that I saw in the shops:

I feel a bit sad looking at this awful Chloe paraty knock off!

At night we went to check out the famous Dongdaemun area for night shopping experience. Honestly I didn’t think much of it and somehow it was a waste of my time.

I saw more low quality items and heaps of brand name knock offs. We tried to go around the area a bit just in case we were not in the right part of the shopping street. Apparently there was no other shopping street.

It was an experience indeed and if someday I come and visit Korea again, I’ll definitely give this place a miss.
