Just down the road from the iconic Namdaemun, or great southern gate, from which it takes its name, Namdaemun Market holds the title as the largest traditional market in all of South Korea. Locals know Namdaemun market as a place where to shop for cheap. Most store and stall owners make their own goods and peddle those goods -- clothes toys, glasses, mountain gear, fishing equipment, stationery, hats, carpets, and all types of accessories -- for cheap!
