Starting long Chuseok holiday without going anywhere is like eating hamburger without meat inside. It feels empty. But going too far was not a good choice also since the traffic were worst in this time. I was lucky finding this “Night Market” event at the last minute. I was also lucky because this night market only open every Saturday, on Sept 30 and Oct 7. I just find out that this night market already start since June. haha please mind my schedule before graduation was crazy. I missed many things that moment.
Fortunately, they organize another special event for these last two days. They call it ” Taste of Korea” or “한국의 맛”. There are 40 Korean chefs who open their booth in night market. As expected from Korea, they organize the concept very well. I can say “romantic night” (?) haha Because they arrange some tables and chairs with dim light neon on each table. romantic, isn’t it?!
There is no entrance fee but if you want to taste the chef’s signature dish, you have to pay some Korean old coins named nyang 냥 , to purchase the food. You can purchase this coins in many spots inside, 10,000 won for 3 coins. The average price for the food was 2 coins, and 1 coin for drink and snack. Buy and use the coins wisely ^^
Not only food, for me especially who like free stuff, I only take a walk without paying anything haha It was nice to have a walk in the area. There are some handmade handicraft stuffs to see and also some performance and busking. You can just sit, watch and take a photos of them 😀
Before knowing about this night market stuff, honestly I didn’t know that this place were exist @@
This place is kind of small folk village in the middle of city. worth to visit in the daylight also!
How to Get There:
Take Subway and get off at Chungmuro station (충무로) Line 4.
Go to exit 3 or 4, and walk for about 5 minutes to reach the village. It is easy to find 🙂
