There are many shops that sells household items to furniture. There are also lots of food stalls for you to choose from. Most of them taste really good and cheap.

We were taken here on a tour. Dropped off at dusk having been told that Koreans like to drink all night. Not a good start! However, there was a reassuring tourist Police Cabin in full view. Narrow streets, large and small shops, malls and street...More

It doesn’t matter how many times you go to the International market, there is always some new to see. There are always the ‘aunties’ cooking local food in the laneways, and food trolleys with local fare. Try the dumplings as they are to die for,...More

We spent an hour or so wandering around this huge market. This certainly wasn't just for tourists - you can buy anything here, like a local, from electrical and kitchen goods, to food, and clothes (which are often piled high). There are pictures at the...More

It is always best to use local currency. Some will surprisingly take USD but probably at an unfavorable conversion rate for you. ATMs in Korea are pretty accessible for US cards.

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.
