About Dongdaemun-gu

Home to the largest herbal medicine market in South Korea, Dongdaemun-gu sprawls to the north-east of central Seoul. It’s one of the South Korean capital’s 25 districts and takes its name from the Eight Gates of Seoul, which were built as part of the city’s fortress walls in the 14th century.

Things to do

Don’t miss a visit to the immense Gyeongdong Market, a herbal medicine market that has been in operation since 1960. It boasts more than 1,000 stalls and shops selling oriental medicines, as well as several associated clinics in the surrounding area. In addition to herbal ingredients, you can also pick up agricultural goods and fresh seafood.

If you’re particularly interested in oriental medicine, don’t miss a visit to the Seoul Yangnyeongsi Herb Medicine Museum, which illustrates its history and traditions in Korea. It’s located opposite the Gyeongdong Market and features exhibits such as vintage medical tools, old documents and some of the plants that are used in traditional medicine.

Nestled on the slope of Cheonjangsan Mountain is the Hongneung Arboretum, which also serves as the resting place of Empress Myeongseong’s royal tomb. It was established in 1922 to support the study of Korean flora and functions as an ecological learning facility for students. On weekends, it opens up to the public and is a popular place to stroll while learning about the plants and trees that are native to South Korea.
