Unfortunately our tour group only had 30 minutes to spend here, which was not nearly enough time. We spent most of the time trying to find an ATM (there is one in the 7-11 - but the minimum amount you must withdraw was high), so...More

We didn't have too much time so it was a toss up. Guess what, the women won. This market takes over quite a few city blocks. We wandered around for a couple of hours and the amount of things for sale is just mind boggling....More

This market is the real thing, no (or very little) tacky tourist junk. There are streets and streets of alleyways, corners and street stalls where you can see just how the Koreans shop and eat. Plan to spend a while here and probably buy nothing...More

Came here on a tour and perhaps it was over-hyped by the guide. Very little here that tourists might want to see or buy. Caters mostly to locals and most shops seemed low-end. Can't really recommend unless you are at a loose end.

As the market is in the form of individual stores. So it depends on individually. However they are usually opened from 9:00-22:00 and closed on first and third Sunday of the month.
