Title: Electronics Opportunities in Seoul Korea?
Post by: Jon Chandler on November 22, 2013, 03:15:37 pm
I may have the opportunity to travel to Seoul Korea in the near future.  While continuing on to Shenzeng or Hong Kong might be possible, it turns out it's not much closer from Seoul than Seattle.

I've seen videos of the awesome electronics shopping in Shenzeng.  Does anybody know if anything similar is available in Seoul?  Any recommendations of specific places to go?

In Seoul the electronic market is around the Yongsan station. But I haven't been there in a while, and I don't know how it compares to Shenzen. I think the electronics components shops are normally located on bottom floors.
