Other than going to Dongdaemun for shopping, another place that you may want to check out is Gasan Digital Complex Station. Near this Metro station has many outlet malls for many well known brands. It’s range is similar to a departmental store, from fashion to bedding, but mostly fashion for men, women and young ones.
Head to Metro Line 1 or 7, Gasan Digital Complex Station, Exit 4.
Once you exit, you will Mario Outlet Mall from afar. You are on the right track. Walk towards that direction.
You will first come to Fashion Island Mall before reaching Mario Outlet Mall. It is also an outlet mall but with only 2 floors and less choices. You can check it out and the entrance would already have some stalls on the sale items that they sell. I would think that most people would head straight for Mario Outlet Mall.
Mario Outlet Mall has 3 buildings. After Fashion Island Mall, you will first come to Mario 3, which is then linked to Mario 2 then 1. It houses a wide range of fashions but at the same item there are some brands that are repeated. Yet, you will still want to take a look at them. There are also a wide range of restaurants to fill your tummy and rest your legs.
