Tongin Market

Recommendation by Lemi

Located just a stone’s throw away from Gyeongbokgung Palace, Tongin Market is one of the city’s long-standing traditional markets! It was originally set up for Japanese residents who lived in the neighborhood during the Japanese rule in Korea. Years later, it was taken over by local vendors who turned it into a marketplace. Within Tongin Market, you'll find the popular Dosirak Cafe—a cafeteria that lets you build your own dosirak (lunch box)! For only KRW5,000 (around USD5), you’re given an empty tray to fill up with small portions of different fares. You’re also supplied with 10 yeopjeon pieces (Korean brass coins) which are used to pay vendors in lieu of actual cash!
