"Even fun for those who don't love to shop!!!" Namdaemun (Great South Gate) Tip by lobsterman

Namdaemun (Great South Gate), Seoul: 23 reviews and 42 photos


Probably one of the largest markets I will ever visit, with literally thousands of stalls, and shoppers all looking for the best deals. Whatever it is you are looking for, it can be found here, believe me. It is a great place to buy souvenirs of any kind, and if the price isn't marked on the merchandise, then it's fair game for bargaining!!

What to buy: Korean Crafts, T-shirts, Food, Everything

What to pay: If you can speak a little Korean, and are able to bargain, don't expect to spend very much!!!

Theme: Local Craft
