No Shopping DMZ Half Day Tour from Seoul

Enjoy the highlights of the DMZ and get back to Seoul in time for lunch on a guided group tour. Listen to immersive commentary during visits to Imjingak Park, Dora Observatory, and other important landmarks. Have your camera ready for an unobstructed view of one of the world's most famous demilitarized zones. Best of all, this excursion does not include unnecessary shopping stops that other tours add on, which saves you valuable vacation time.

I love the array of food here. Warm, filling, satisfying. There is one lady selling octopus at the very end of the market (south area i think) is so nice to us. She should earn a credit

Interesting traditional Korean marketplace easily accessible by metro. This place has lots of delicious snacks and street food and you can see stalls selling hugh and tiny reddish, hugh cabbage and big red apples, etc. Worth a visit 😊

A traditional market near Mangwon Station. Good to visit. - Featured by media several times. This is popular even locating in a residential area. - This is quite away from other touristic areas. But, we saw some foreign tourists. - Very huge. The market continues even outside the arcade. Also, Mangwondong Worldcup Market is right across the road. - Various places to try street foods and they are affordable. If you don't know what to try, have some at crowded places.

The market is a local community asset that the residents support in order to sustain it. It was good to visit such a market rather than only see a market aimed at tourists.

Walk within 5-10 minutes from subway station to this market and it's easy to find using Naver maps. During walks, there are some shop sell fruits or local food and products. Inside the market, there are stall who sell raw meat, vegetables, banchan (korean side dish), local food snack shop, etc.. well, it's a traditional market and you can find anything. I bought strawberry for 3000 Won (big pack, 24 pcs). Strawberry is big and very sweet. I eat famous kalguksu (noodles with broth soup) which cost me 3500 Won with a very big portion. The restaurant is not too big that I have to queue for 5-8 minutes and 1 person 1 order. You can't share the meals even though it's very big for my size. I bought odeng (fish cake) for 2000 Won 3 pcs and it's delicious also thick (not like the one I eat in Hongdae). Very chewy. I also bought rice with red bean which is very good also. Oh my ... I do have a larger stomach so I can eat all of the food here ... hahahaha...
