Create an itinerary including Kwangjang Market
Eat your heart out at Kwangjang Market, a bustling destination offering a huge array of classic Korean fare and goods. Wander this thriving street market, one of the largest in the country, and browse the 5,000-plus shops and storefronts bursting with food grills, clothing collections, and more. Pick up some handicrafts as a memento, stock up on traditional herbs and medicines, or even take your pick from an array of fresh fruits and vegetables. Despite all of these goods on offer, it's the freshly prepared meals that reigns supreme here. Make sure you taste the market's premier dish, a savory mung-bean pancake known as "bindaettok." Alternatively, you can opt for other well-known dishes, such as "bibimbap" (a rice bowl filled with meat and vegetables) or "mayak gimbap" (rice rolls with seaweed).

  • Always something interesting. Fantastic food, and fabric for a steal. Don't forget the 2nd floor.
  • A fantastic place to take new visitors to South Korea. Come hungry, and be ready to eat at a few of the 100s of stalls.
  • Great place to buy cheap clothes, fabric and house goods. The food selection is limited due most venders, if not all, serve the same thing. Wouldn't mind going back if in the neighborhood.
  • There is the one of the most fantastic places in seoul. If you visitor and try to find local places like restaurants served local foods, you have to visit there.
  • Great place to see the local traditional market. Friendly merchants and nice to look around.
