As great it is to walk around, you should really go in and check their design stores with some tasty coffee

The name of the place speak for it. It's a very decent plaza to hangout for awhile, all specially created gifts, toys, travel item etc. One of the booth attract me it's the 3D printing, you take pictures surrounded by lotsa camera from 4 direction...More

Wow. This place amazing and beautiful. It's also the venue conferences, fashion shows, trade shows,.... The museum hall is a harmonious blend of Korean design and globalization. I will be back here when I come back Korea.

This is my first encounter with zaha hadid’s architecture and can finally understand her talents. Every architect who is aspiring to be great should come here to study her work. Architectural documentation does no credit to her.

Happy I've seen it, architecture alone is breathtaking. But nothing else. It's just a fancy mall. Come if you want to drop your kids to a playground, come for food trucks and coffee shops, come for cheap memorabilia shopping. You won't find here anything you...More

Beautiful building designed by Zaha Hadid. Even though nothing of interest went on inside or around the building for me, it is worth an hour just to look around the building.

I was amazed by this building, seeing all the curves. I am an engineer so i appreciate from its exterior alone. I wonder how they have drawn this. There were nice buildings also within the vicinity so i guess visiting this place is worth it...More

Stunning architecture and well worth a look particularly in the evening. For those interested in reasonably priced Korean fashion, its proximity to the Nandaemun fashion malls is an extra plus

Easily accessible by Dongdaemun History and Culture Metro station. Big and beautiful building, rather unique and artistic design. A great place to walk and take a stroll at in the evening if you are coming to Dongdaemun, lots of shopping and eateries opposite it.

The rose garden will always be open. But for malls you can check with some local. I am assuming it will be shut

Take Seoul metro line no 2, no 4 or no 5. Get off at "Dongdaemum History & Culture Park" station, Exit no 1., just few minute walk.

Yes, you can do it. The places inside are close, some of the restaurants are open I think until 8 pm.
