It has so many things to offer: clothes, food, paper, luggage, gifts, pottery, jewelry,toys and fabrics. It was packed with so many goods it's hard to take it all in. The shop owners were friendly.

Unless you'll be going to Seoul or Busan, Daegu's Seomun Market is a must see for anybody coming to Daegu. It's a great combination of all kinds of products for sale that will fit almost any need.

Seomun is the largest and most diverse of the (at least) three traditional markets in Daegu (Chilseong is the other that is definitely worth visiting: on Subway Line 1). Seomun is not just a fish market, which is amazing, but the main buildings are a labyrinth of stores and stalls the likes of which are most unique. From traditional Korean... More
