Seoul's Mind-Blowing Dongdaemun Market

So, I'm going to be straight up: my photos of Seoul's legendary Dongdaemun Market simply don't do it justice. Not even close. The winding, if-you-want-it-here-it-is-come-and-get-it marketplace is a GIGANTIC place--much of it indoors, even--and I often felt a bit overwhelmed and a little claustrophobic, which kept my camera turned off a majority of the time.

However, I'm pretty sure that, even if I snapped every square inch of that neck of the woods, you still wouldn't get the total picture. Ooooh, the cool smells, the new tastes, the chance to try and buy almost anything you can imagine. Photo heaven! (You know, almost.)

All I'm saying is, next time you're in Seoul, be sure to go.
