No Shopping DMZ Half Day Tour from Seoul

123 reviews
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.

Gyeongdong Market is famous for its fruit sellers and low prices. The fruit zone is really huge and lively. You can find various kinds of Korean fruits and imported fruits. However, be careful. There are dishonest sellers giving lower quality fruits than samples. So, you should check before paying especially purchasing as a box. Also, there are many others like ginsengs, vegetables, grains, seafoods, etc.

We wandered down this street not knowing in advance what it was. Absolutely fascinating! Not until later were we informed this is the largest herbal medicine market in Korea. Had no idea of most of what we were looking at, but it really didn't matter. It is a traditional Korean market, and that's what mattered. We also found fruits here as well as medicinal herbs. And volcanic rock from Jeju Island.

Very huge ginseng market where you can smell the ginseng odor once you come out from metro. Some owners speak chinese but mostly cannot understand english. I bought many ginseng, cheap and expensive ones and when cook you can notice the flavour straight away. Further down, fruits section where you can find many kinds of local fruits.

We went to Gyeongdong Yaknyeong Market looking for ginseng, and ginseng is what we found and much more. Ginseng came in different varieties from fresh sitting in baskets on the ground to dried in vacuum packed and boxed or the more expensive varieties in tins. It was considerably cheaper than in stores. But the market also offers so much more including dried fish, squid, seaweed, as well as vegetables and fruit, all at very reasonable prices. The market itself was extremely clean and well organised, well worth a visit.
