Kwangjang Market, Seoul Reviews

  • Talk about an experience! Look, take it from someone who doesn't enjoy crowds... this is just one of those places you have to experience to appreciate. Granted I also have the advantage of being nearly 6'6" tall, so that helped. ;-) Besides, it was amazing how once you got out of the main passage ways, how quickly you can find yourself in a nearly deserted section of the market. The sheer amount and variety of stuff for sale is always an amazing thing at places like this. Visiting in the middle of December when it was 20* wasn't ideal, but at least I was easily able to buy a warm hat. Looking forward to seeing more of this place again on a future trip!

  • I went mainly for food hunting. I found several dishes that were new to me as a Korean. Prices are marked clearly and they won't rip you off. The used clothes market vendors are generally young people interested in fashion and will recommend you good styles. They will grab you with flattering compliments so be aware. It's big so be caredul not to get lost. There are many markets in and around; street food around here is pretty good too.

  • This place was so energectic and fun. If you want to try some good ole traditional Korean dishes, do not hesitate. It really was a very fulfilling experience for me. Yeah, it is a street market in a way, and it is crowded but once you are in it, the whole ride is a fun ride. Just GO and EXPLORE !

  • Too many stalls selling the same food items and you don't know which ones are better than the other. But it is exciting to walk through the market and just be amazed by the variety of food the stalls offer. It is definitely a tourist must go spot in Seoul

  • It's always very crowded and very loud. But this place pretty much has everything! The food is especially worth trying! It's also amazingly cheap! You can order something and get it to go. However, you can also just sit down at the food stalls, or some of the shops have indoor seating areas. It's all very convenient.
