The largest market in Korea is Myeong-dong's Namdaemun Market.

Underground Arcades

Apart from Myeong-dong's abundance of overground retailers there are hundreds to be discovered in a series of underground arcades. The longest, stretching 4km beneath Eulji-ro from City Hall to Dongdaemun is Eulji-ro Arcade; many of the stalls here stock fashions that are a throwback to yester-year. More upmarket vendors selling handicrafts and antiques can be found in the Sogong Arcade beneath Sognog-ro.
