There’s not a whole lot of soul to shopping malls is there? Soul, see what we did there? Anyway, you’ll join one of our Seoul hosts to discover the bustling center of Seoul’s most time-honored economy - marketplaces. 

Whilst the city itself is a shining beacon of cosmopolitan modernity, it still houses these traditional nods to its past in the form of street markets.

 You could shop for the latest fabrics at a renowned fashion market, visit Korea’s largest fish market at dawn (quite something to behold) or simply eat your way around a night market and taste some street food - my oh my, sign us up.

It’s here, where locals come to buy, sell, barter and trade, that South Korea’s cultural roots can be felt. Join your host and allow them to introduce you to an institution that’s been around for decades.

You might just need to find some extra room in your suitcase for the gadgets, souvenirs, and tea sets you’ll undoubtedly end up buying!
