The largest traditional market in South Korea is even open overnight from 11:00 p.m. to 4:00 a.m.
This sprawling traditional market bustles with energy and is bursting at the seams with piles of products for sale everywhere you look. Children's clothes, accessories, spectacles, watches, cameras, outdoor gear, fresh flowers, ginseng and street food like jokbal (pork hocks) are just some of the items sold here in huge quantities every day and night of the year. Remember to bargain as prices are not labeled or fixed. Shinsegae department store is also here and provides a calm, up-market oasis in complete contrast to the hubbub and jostling in the lively market outside.
