Gukje Market, Busan

Categories: Flea Markets, Shopping
Inspirock Rating:
3.2/5 based on 220 reviews on the web
Gukje Market maintains traditional marketplace atmosphere, owing to its history as a place where refugees of the Korean War earned a living selling basic goods. Make your way through the alleyways, observing how locals shop and browsing the large array of items, both new and used, on offer. Perhaps the biggest draw for foreigners, though, remains the many food stalls and restaurants for sampling Korean fare.

  •  Also in your reports. Divided into categories of shops, shops and numerous and quite extensively, as it was open (to some degree). Can be seen in ridicule, just quite enjoy and feel the atmosphere of Korea, the bargain products. I think you could recommend.

  • We went during Chusoek long holidays and on a rainy day, most of stalls/shops are not open. It's quite hard to shop during rainy days as it's not covered. 
  • You can shopping Avenue to the North and South and the sides lined with shops, even in the rain without getting wet. Appliances and Sunday, Carpenter has many shops, is just not garden shop as a tourist, but there watches jewelry stores and souvenir shops have. Felt lifeless and wasn't too impressed.

  • Before stumbling upon Gukje Market, I thought Namdaemun was the most interesting market in Korea, or possibly Gyeongdong (both in Seoul). I was wrong. The sprawling maze of alleys and streets that make up Gukje are so fascinating, you could spend all day here. If you like street markets, this should be one of your top spots to visit in Busan.
  • Can find all sorts of souveniirs & household stuff
  • At night its more local tourist
  • Live, but because it's technically a time so a big market. His namesake, the movie was more successful after the guests always ..?
