    Pass By: Kwangjang Market, 88, Changgyeonggung-ro, Jongno-gu, Seoul 03195 South Korea
    Let's try some street food! Gwangjang Market was the first permanent market in Korea and it continues to thrive today. The second floor of the market is filled with silk, satin, and linen bed-sheet stores, which are the largest and most famous in Seoul.

    Many of the stores in the area even have their own factories supplying fabrics to the Namdaemun Market, Pyoung Hwa Market, and even to some department stores. Even though the goods are not brand-name products, the wide selection of high quality goods at inexpensive prices makes it an enjoyable shopping experience.

    However, the highlight of this market is not the fabrics. The fascinating part is discovering the animated food stalls, also popularized among foreigners by a recent Neflix show. We will go sampling some of the best Korean street foods here. The specialties in this market are octopus tartar and mung-bean pancakes. You will also be introduced to eccentric Korean foods such as steamed pork feet, blood sausage, and spicy chicken feet.

    Stop At: N Seoul Tower, 105, Namsangongwon-gil, Yongsan-gu, Seoul 04340 South Korea
    Take in the breathtaking 360-degree view of the Seoul Metropolis! The top of the tower is at almost 480m above sea level, including Namsan Mountain(243m) and the tower’s own height(236.7m).

    The tower was first established as a broadcast tower to send out TV and radio signals in 1969. As of now, it has become one of the representative landmarks and multi-cultural venues in Seoul. At the tower, you can check out other highlights including the famous 'Locks of Love' and ancient beacon mounds.
    Duration: 1 hour

    Pass By: Myeongdong Shopping Street, Jung-gu, Seoul South Korea
    Myeong-dong is one of the primary shopping districts in Seoul. Many brand name shops, cosmetic stores, and department stores line the streets and alleys. Common products for sale include clothes, shoes, cosmetics and accessories. Unlike Namdaemun or Dongdaemun, many designer brands are sold in Myeong-dong.

    The streets are filled with abundance of street food vendors. Enjoy your evening in this town, which seems to have forgotten the night.
