The area’s narrow streets are lined with a colorful mix of stores offering over 1,700 different kinds of items at reasonable prices, such as: children’s clothes, men’s/women’s clothing, accessories, home goods, utensils, electronics, wedding items, stationery, folk crafts, local produce, and imported goods. For those hoping to experience the feel of the traditional market as well as find some good bargains, Namdaemun Market is definitely the place to go.
One of the major highlights of Namdaemun Market is its wide array of optical shops where customers can purchase eyeglasses, sunglasses, and contact lenses at prices half those in other areas. There are also plenty of stores peddling wares like traditional dolls, mother-of-pearl jewelry boxes, traditional key rings, and ornaments. Don’t forget to bring your camera to capture all your marketplace memories. If you don’t have a camera, head over to Saerona Shopping Center, famous for having a good selection of cameras at reasonable prices.
