The market has many whole sale stores. It’s a busy area and you can buy nice things in a good price but you’ll have to bargin. I’d recommend an hour or two to walk around and get a glimpse of whats going on

Good place to experience traditional setting in the middle of the bustling city. Since it's located in the middle of myeongdong and Seoul station. Just 5 minutes away from each other. Strategic place. Good people, and good atmosphere.

We spent a couple of hours here, having great fun just wondering up and down the aisles of stores. So much to see, so many wonderful smells. Plenty to eat and plenty of cheap market goods to buy.

This is a large and busy market. Lots of clothes, food, souvenirs, toys, and housewares. I did not see much in the way of art (like you would get at Insadong). Definitely a good choice for a market experience. It is also an easy walk...More
