All about the trip
If, after sightseeing in downtown Seoul, you are hit by a sudden hunger, visit the Gwangjang Market! This is a place where Seoul citizens meet up with close acquaintances for Bindaetteok (Korean style pancake) and Makgeolli (rice wine). It is a large-scale market where visitors can feel the traditional Korean ambiance.
Located in the Jongno 5-ga neighborhood in Seoul, Gwangjang Market was the nation’s first permanent traditional market. Established in 1905, the market today is home to more than 5,000 stores selling fabric, bedding, handmade crafts, ibaji food, and hanbok. Many of Gwangjang’s stores and alleys have remained unchanged from the way they were in the past. It is not uncommon to find noodle restaurants and hanbok stores that have been in business for as long as three generations.
Specialities of the market include bindaetteok (mung bean pancake), mayak gimbap (a type of seaweed roll), vegetables, bedding, imported living goods, hanbok, fabric, and vintage goods. The market operates from 9:00 to 18:00, except for the food market, which is open until 23:00. Gwangjang Market is closed on Sundays, but the food market is open year-round. Recently, the market was upgraded with modern-style restrooms and rest areas.
Han River Cruise
Hangang River Ferry Cruise is one of the best ways to enjoy the scenery around Hangang River that flows through Seoul.

The cruise is often used for weddings, birthday parties, music performances and other events.What Wikipedia Says
