Seoul’s Dongdaemun and Namdaemun markets

This market was over 100 years old, but had been destroyed during the Korean War (really it was the U.S. war on Korea). In the late 1950s rebuilding commenced until decades later when more shops had been added, it became larger.

To enter one of the country’s largest markets, I first had to fight the traffic. I searched isles fascinated by some of the sights. Luckily, I didn’t find anything I wanted. I hate travelling with a bulging suitcase. There was an overload of plastic, though in Namdaemun Market, the ginseng display caught my eye.
