    Hard to find. Walk there via a pedestrian bridge from the iPark mall pass Shilla duty free, with vagrants sleeping on cardboard boxes. Smells of vomit. Nothing much in the market. Perhaps it was a Sun...  more »

    Probably my favorite place in Korea. The yongsan electronics Market sells Electronics in several different buildings. The main building has almost 10 floors of cellphones, computers, appliances, and video games. The surrounding buildings have everything you can imagine that the big building has, but they are much cheaper. I bought my cell phone from here, and my laptop. For the gamers out there, I recommend going out Exit 3, looking for the massive gaming sign, and going underground there. It is the coolest gaming area I probably ever seen!

    Kind of losing it's luster, these days. Most people would go to the big box stores to buy things, or maybe buy online. Electronics Market is really a holdover from a bygone era. It's still a cool place to visit, check out all of the old and new stuff available. You can also still buy extremely high-end things here, if that's your interest.

    Great place to get your tech gear. Check for prices online (sites like 11th and Gmarket have coupon sales which could make certain things cheaper). Also haggle - you can get an additional 8-11% off when paying cash.

    Don't go here looking for electronic components. It's great for appliances and products, but if you're looking for small components, you won't find them here.

    I love this place. Even I bought a new phone here.

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.
