Great stop to buy souvenirs/ memorable items to bring home. I think it is cash only as most vendors don't take credit cards. They aren't keen on bartering. Maybe they can discount 1000 won. They don't try to negotiate so playing hard to get won't work here. They sell snacks and grocery items too.

A very big local market that sells so many arrays of things. Worth strolling around even not buying.

It doesn’t matter how many times you go to the International market, there is always some new to see. There are always the ‘aunties’ cooking local food in the laneways, and food trolleys with local fare. Try the dumplings as they are to die for, as are the Korean pancakes. But you are spoilt for choice - watermelon slushee, turkey ice cream, chicken kebabs, endless choice. There are always bargains to be found at the countless stalls. Some nights you can have your fortune told. Sometimes the film festival is on. It is always busy, always interesting.

A market that you can not only buy mostly household daily stuff but also a place to wander and see the locals doing their business. It is business as usual and they are quite oblivion of others. Some simple food stalls also available. Visit and get a taste of local market.

We spent an hour or so wandering around this huge market. This certainly wasn't just for tourists - you can buy anything here, like a local, from electrical and kitchen goods, to food, and clothes (which are often piled high). There are pictures at the beginning of each row to indicate what can be found within that row. We didn't buy anything and a lot of the stalls were not doing much business (although we were there during the week). The most interesting thing was the way stall holders cooked and set out their lunches (with several dishes of food) to eat at lunch time, oblivious of passers by and shoppers.
