Electronics Market in Seoul

If your looking for a new computer, a new computer screen, a new key board, games or anything else electronic, instead of spending a fortune at Computer stores head to the Electronics Market in Seoul.

The Electronics Market is made up of over 20 buildings housing 5,000 stores that sell appliances, stereos, computers and peripherals, office equipment, telephones, lighting equipment, electronic games and software, and videos and CDs. Korean-made products generally cost 20% less here than other retail outlets, while imported items can be as much as 50% cheaper. Transformers of varying sizes can be found at many shops.
The major stores are open 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., and are closed the 1st and 3rd Sundays of each month. Life in Korea.com

As with any wholesale stores, I'm sure there are many pirated goods, and you might have a problem with returning faulty goods. But for the basics (usb's, adaptors, key boards etc) its a fantastic place to get a great deal!

The tunnel to the Electronics Market

Farmboy picked up a really great deal on a T-Card for his Nintendo (which stores hundreds of games) and cost W40 000 (about $40) from Kenny (Nanjin-sanga 15 Dong, below F22Ho 3-23 bunji, Hangangno 3-ga, Yonsan)

Yongson Subway (subway line 1) Exit 2. Walk out of the station and turn right. You will go through a long tunnel and emerge in a big Electronic Mall. Go out the mall (the prices there are much higher than at the other stores), cross the street and take your pick of any of the warehouses/buildings in front of you).
