Inspirock Rating:
4.2/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web
Resembling a giant spaceship docked in a field of fake white roses, DongDaemun Design Plaza hosts fashion design shops, a multipurpose convention hall, a history museum, and eateries. A combination of classy shopping mall and suave conference center set in the middle of Dongdaemun fashion district, this modern landmark of Seoul gets an extra accent from thousands of glowing LED lights along its sloping curves. You can also explore some 2,575 artifacts in the restored parts of a fortress excavated during construction works. The plaza is well-connected, with a subway station just underneath. DongDaemun Design Plaza is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Seoul Edition.

  • I enjoy inside the interior design stuffs. they also take care of the kids when you travel with them. 
  • Dongdaemun's Design Plaza is a great example of what a computer and some thought can do to architecture. I spent the best part of an hour just looking around the large, non crowded space while others in my party shopped near by. Great location just to rest, walk around. But there are often design related displays on in the building itself.
  • A very great place for modern designs lover! The architecture, the gallery, everything was just very beautiful. This is especially true in the evening when you can see the beautiful lights coming out from the building.
  • The DDP is simply superb, it is a must-see if you visit Seoul. At first glance , the exterior curves really make the Plaza stand out and make you stare in awe. Imside, there are spectacular art exhibitions and other cool things.
  • If you like modern art this place is wonderful to get lost in. From countless exhibits and shops selling unique and fun items you never knew you needed, to appreciating the dizzying architecture. Stay till night when it lights up! The light flower field is quite beautiful.
  • Nice building to visit. Allow 2 or 3 hours for the tour. There is a nice 3D printing shop, where you can make a model of yourself.
