The Yongsan Electronics Market is an enormous wholesale electronics market located near the Yongsan Train Station, where all needs relating to computers, imported audio systems, game utilities and more are aptly answered. This mall first opened in 1988 as part of city’s rehabilitation project, and since then provides all the specialized in electronic parts including computers, DVDs, CDs, and many other types of consumer goods. There are more than 5,000 stores currently operating in this area, and shoppers will find all their electronics needs at prices 15 to 30% cheaper than at general retail stores.
It’s also a good spot for well-priced (and barely used) secondhand phones.
Prices are very reasonable and often can be negotiated. Americans visiting the shop find that prices are similar to sale prices in the U.S. Foreigners coming from countries that have higher electronic prices will be sure to find a bargain for what they are looking for here.
