Gukje Market maintains traditional marketplace atmosphere, owing to its history as a place where refugees of the Korean War earned a living selling basic goods. Make your way through the alleyways, observing how locals shop and browsing the large array of items, both new and used, on offer. Perhaps the biggest draw for foreigners, though, remains the many food stalls and restaurants for sampling Korean fare.

  • We love the street food here, its taste so authentic and full with flavour. For price wise, I personally think Gukje Market is cheaper for you to grab on the souvenir and food compare to others.

  • A lot of nice food! Fun to visit and try different types of Korean street food.
  • Probably a nice market for the locals, traffic is very very low on weekdays and could find yourself the only tourist there. Seems like most stuff are catered to the locals after these two years
