The Seoul Flea Market will be housed in a two-storey building whose design
was inspired by traditional Korean aesthetics. A tourist information booth will
be installed at the main entrance to assist visitors. Located near
Cheonggyecheon, visitors to the flea market can enjoy a stroll by the stream as
Old photographs, portraits, manual typewriters, old books and other
knick-knacks ? ranging from recycled goods to antiques -- will be found at the
flea market. Flea markets attract more visitors than actual buyers and the old
flea market at Dongdaemun Stadium, which is replaced by the new flea market in
Sinseol-dong, attracted as many as 10,000 visitors on weekends.
Seoul City plans to develop the Seoul Folk Flea Market into a major
international tourist attraction on par with similar flea markets in Sydney,
Beijing, Prague and Paris.
