  • 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.
  • Great experience, good food, fun way to sample or really enjoy Korean food. Can't wait to bring friends and family.
  • It's different type of experience to buy food.😀. We were there early, so we spent some time walking to the bottom of Inwangsan mountain. After eating, we walked to tong-gui dong hanok village. Its worth the time.
  • Nice traditional korean market with local food. You can buy some "market coin" and make your own lunch box 👍
