Gukje Market, Busan

3.3
#4 of 33 in Shopping in Busan
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.

  • International market morning 10:00 from too much reserve goes into is like. Busan store is unthinkable in Japan... start slow and all but cultural differences? 11 and we will pursue opens shop. Food stalls on the main street in the international market is from the early afternoon. You should spend time early in the morning in Korean cafes, Starbucks, etc. I wouldn't so when suddenly patterns because there is no public toilets (convenience store), Busan. It is important as easy-to-go before you check out. Evening from more crowded and at night in many people who like building units (hottoku), matrix. Busan of taste should also look into the stall became concerned about the fits. Busan works very Kim Jong Suk. Intertwined with the Kim Jong Suk smattering Japan language and Hangul smattering of surprising and interesting. As the hospitality of the Japanese people about things is not enough however to cultures, have fun. Women are especially fun shopping. Or to doing a sale at 10000 W by the merchant from casual clothing to buy at department stores in Japan and more than double the 30,000 W (3,000 yen), so check it out. Basically, clothing shoes feel great. Diet feel about 20 percent cheaper than Japan. And have things such as foreign exchange gains just now is the value of the won and the yen does not change much, so... international market map with no walk is quite expert. Alley over and over again because is the first lost. I will. The same as for annual staff sitting in front is write out every time. Let's go, also to be called without worrying about.

  • This is where they filmed the movie Gukjesijang! There’s a lot to see and good place to pick up souvenirs. The seafood market is near by. There are a lot of street food vendors near here! Everyone is super friendly. Tends to be crowded on weekends. Be prepared to walk a lot and eat a lot.
  • Be prepared to spend some time at this market, it has so much to browse and shop for! I got all of my souvenir shopping done here and you can haggle the prices. The location is also near Bupyeong Market, which is a night market selling just as much but street food. So get your shopping done during the day and eat your fill at night!
  • A great local shopping area that just goes on and on. This is very much for the locals but easy to loose an hour or so walking around the many alleyways. If you like street food there is a street full of little stalls where you sit on tiny stools and eat food cooked in front of you.
  • Very busy and lots of authentic korea foods and fun place to visit. I bought the korean style fried pan cake that appears on the many famiuae korean show. Running man or Infinity challenge... Long line up, about 15-20 minutes to get a piece :))).
  • Very interesting place to visit, to see the local market selling everything, from food to cloths, household item, everything. It's big, that you can take hours to walk through every alley.

Where to stay in Busan

Established as a domestic tourist destination for a long while now, you'll find a good set of accommodations in Busan, a city becoming more and more equipped to cope with its burgeoning international reputation. Around Seomyeon station and slightly further to the northeast lie some of the most established options, with an abundance of hotels, hostels, and guesthouses in this highly commercial district. Head to the Haeundae beach district for a range of beachfront options, and more budget-friendly guesthouses in the side streets that lead away from the beach.
