  • This is a real market, just a street, although a little bit. There are fruits and vegetables, dry goods and cooked food. Forest species of authentic goods also let us Open a large eye. For these travellers, of course, we are attracted to the deli. It is also worthwhile to have a chance to visit a circle.

  • The lunchbox deal at Tongin market is tasty and affordable. Highly recommended. It costs 5000 won to get a plastic lunch box tray and a string full of coins. Find the participating vendors and eat delicious banchan (side dishes).
  • It was very nice. They stop giving out coins trays at 4pm. We were late but still a great experience and tasty food. Many of the stalls have been featured on Korean TV.
  • Nice traditional korean market with local food. You can buy some "market coin" and make your own lunch box 👍
  • We went and tried the Dosirak Cafe, unfortunately we went on a Monday, and was not able to check the operation hours/days, thus we had to do without. But since the place was a market, we were able to buy multiple food for a cheap price and all were good.
  • Food selection was a little limited and mostly cold. Not trying to dump on it but it definitely doesn't seem to be as good as it once was

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.
