  • Namdaemun market and gwangjang market are nice, but Kyoto is a popular City Park is not available to ordinary citizens, traditional market atmosphere. And opening of agricultural shop on the grounds interacting with people have fun while shopping. Kampo herbal medicine shops in Seoul Yangnyeongsi market between jegi-dong station and the restaurant in the basement of the market the station can be found.

Where to stay in Seoul

The Seoul metropolitan area has two districts especially appealing to backpackers--Jongno just northeast of the city, and Hongdae to the west. Both offer good shopping and dining, as well as easy transport links to the rest of the city. Mid-range options may prove difficult to find in peak season (July to August), unless you don't mind staying at a traditional hanok guesthouse, where loads of character make up for any lack of amenities. Finally, a range of top-end hotels with an impressive list of services and facilities lie scattered around the city.
