Songtan's International Market
Just off the shopping area for foreigners is the Songtan's International Market (sometimes called the International Night Market). This area has much more traditional Korean goods like dried fish, fruits, vegetables, meats, some clothing and other interesting items that Koreans use. It's a nice change of pace from the Western-focused market nearby. There are also some great little restaurants tucked into this market area.
Shinjiang Shopping Arcade
This area is one of Korea's best shopping districts. It has a huge variety of stores selling everything from traditional Korean pottery to Nike shoes. This is a great place to shop for souvenirs, custom made suits, coats and jackets, and Korean art work. Typically the prices here are about 1/2 of the prices in Seoul -- if you remember to barter!
