  • This place is great for shopping, especially textiles and seafood. There are plenty of shops to make anything you desire: from curtains to traditional Korean garments. Hours of walking through the area will provide plenty of options. The clothing available here seemed like off-brand or knock-off. Also, most of the shops will not have clothing sized to fit Americans... Just a heads up. The best deals are usually found on the outlying streets of the market, away from the busy areas.
  • Many of the booths were closed still from the lunar new year (2/5-2/6 visited both days). The ones that were open had great deals. The night market was great with all the food.
