A Glimpse of Korean - Gwangmyeong Traditional Market 광명전통시장 추천기

Market is often sought as the heartbeat of a country, far different from visiting museums, national monuments, or historical palace, here you can feel and see the glimpse of  local people everyday life complete with the busy, messy, malleable, aesthetic, and vibrant ambiance. Piles of fruits and vegetables form endless shapes and colors, various stands sells local tapestries, textiles, blankets, fish, butchers, you can get it here with nice bargain. I can spend hours here get lost and watch this unique scenes

Not all market were suggested to foreigners for some reasons considering their overall facility and the products offered. Gwangmyeong market one of the market that gone through remodeling from the small five day market to pleasant and convenient market with more than 350 stalls in it.
