#2 of 41 in Shopping in Busan
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.

  • After eating dinner in Nampo, we went for a walk. Walking around the BIFF Square is an international market. Clothes, miscellaneous goods, living goods, etc., it was a feeling that sells anything. It is an interesting area to watch because it sells the counterfeit of the luxury brand.

  • Find all stuff you need. It's a huge market. Recommended for those who visit Busan and want to grab some souvenirs, even Ginseng as a gift for your family. This market is also close to the BIFF street food. So, it's a must visit location for your journey to Busan.
  • If you're visiting Busan, it's worth dropping by. Gukje market has a whole lot of clothes and household items. There's even a couple vendors selling lighting fixtures. If you've ever been to a traditional market in Korea or a South East Asian country like Cambodia or Vietnam, the vibe is similar. You can barter in some places, but usually they have set prices.
