Established in 1414, this market is the oldest and largest traditional
market in Korea. More than 1,250 shops and stalls line the alleyways in
a 10 acre area, selling vegetables, clothes, tableware, crafts, fresh-cut
flowers and ginseng, among other things. Since each small shop does its
own manufacturing, prices can be10-20% lower than in other shopping areas.
It is also a world-famous shopping paradise and an attraction that tourists
should not miss. At Namdaemun, a great deal of effort has been made to
foster a tourist-friendly atmosphere. Information is available for local
residents and tourists and free interpretation services (both in English
and in Japanese) are readily offered to foreign tourists. SUBWAY : Hoehyeon Station(LINE
