This is a large market but nothing really sets it apart from other larger Korean markets. They have a large variety of goods, clothing, material, food, fresh meats, fresh fruits, etc. Alot of it is civered so that is nice. A few little places to eat, purely Korean food. Worth a visit.

Seomun market is very big market. It looks like bigger than Namdaemun market in Seoul. There are big 5 sections in this market with different functions. You can visit Monorail experience, Missionary House, Gyeoseong High school those are located nearby. 3.1 independent movement stairs and hill which was named Gheongra Eondeok. Ssiat Hoddeok (Pancake) taste will be a good experience.... More

If you don't like crowds don't step foot in this market. Or go on a week day. Other than that this place is HUGE. It has city blocks worth of stuff. Basement and second story levels. I've been 20 times and always find new things. The best way to go is, go with a plan. Everything has sections. A textile... More

Having lived, studied and worked in Korea, coming from the UK this is the kind of market that I always want to show my British friends. It is packed with culture, amazing food and the atmosphere on a busy day is just incomparable. Even if you can't speak Korea, just sit down and try all the different kinds of food.... More

Whilst it was fun to wonder the cramped paths between stores, each shop was selling what the last one offered.

From clothing to food vendors, there are amazing things to take a look and "window shop". The market is so alive and "home" feeling. After being in the area for about 2 1/2 weeks, the vendor bosses remember your face ^^ The community is so friendly with great big smiles.. ah I miss walking through the market and saying hello.....
