One of the truly great markets in Korea. It's tough to find a market that is big enough to warrant a visit, and not so touristic so that it feels authentic. Bujeon Market hits that sweet spot. It has all kinds of foods, included lots...More

A very large wet market with fresh food like seafood, meat and vegetables as well as dried food like nuts and grains. Small eateries too. Many side streets to explore. The ground is wet at most places so wear covered shoes. Good way of seeing...More
