每次必到南大門市場購買童裝, 價錢便宜, 款式很多, 可以講價. 但幼童尺碼/款式為主. 會賢站6號出口走幾分鐘可以到達很方便 more »Every time must go to Nandayu City, children, cheap, a lot of styles, can be a child. But the toddler ruler/style is the main. Will station 6 exit slot can be very convenient to
One of the oldest traditional market in Seoul near Seoul Station. Kinda huge with several alleys so you must allot ample time and money if you're thinking of shopping especially since you can find a lot of things to purchase in this market. More frequented by locals rather than tourists which makes it more interesting. Also, the feel is very different during the day and during the night.
It is simply one of the most famous places in Seoul. One of the oldest (if not the oldest) Korean traditional markets, it has everything except a cat's horn as they say. Delightful place to visit for a good bite or a good bargain
