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.

  • Many seafood here. You need to bargain and If you don't know the price then is difficult for you. So many stalls in the market all selling almost same things. You need to walk a few stalls to compare price. After that you need to bring to a near by restaurant to cook and you have to pay them to cook for you. I had 6 prawns, 4 abalone and 3 small squid and I paid 6500 won including cooking. Just for the fun of it, Not cheap.
  • Before entering this complex, I visited the old market next to it. Its dark but the products available are the same. However the new complex provides packing facilities and is well organised. Many variety of fish, shells, octopus and salt fish. Many creatures are still alive. As the name suggests, no vegetables sold here. You can find them at the alleys around this complex.
  • There were many vendors to choose from and each has an arrangement with the restaurants upstairs. They prepare the seafood quickly and prices were reasonable. Also, the selection of seafood was extensive from many types of fish to hard shells to lobster and king crab.
  • great place to visit in case you're a fan of fresh raw fish (sushi). You get to choose your fish to cook and there's a little headache of bargaining as it's a market place. Try to check the prices with minimum 3 shops before making a choice. Do not believe English is widely spoken in the area. Better to have a local together to learn the system and to negotiate of course.
  • Seafood is fresh and you pick what you want to eat and they will bring you to their restaurant to enjoy! Although stalls there are competitive but if you politely reject them, they are cool about it. Remember to always ask for price between stalls first .
