Namdaemun Market

Namdaemun Market is the best place to go if you want to buy affordable souvenirs. They sell many items like shirts and other Korean products.

Right next to the Sungnyemun gate is the Namdaemun Market.
It is the largest traditional market in Korea. 
I can compare it to the busy streets of Divisoria in the Philippines. 
When I went here, I tried to eat inside a “red tent”. It’s in my bucket list to try it like how Korean movie stars eat there. I don’t have the courage to order soju tho. 😉

This one is my favorite store. They sell different kinds of chips. You can buy it in a small bag for 5,000 won and big bag for 10,000 won. The good thing is you can buy different kinds in one bag. I like the seaweed chips the most.
How to go there:
Take the subway line 4 to Hoehyon Station or Seoul Station
Admission is free but it is closed every Sunday.
