GLOBAL GEEK VIDEO #11: Yongsan and Cheonggyechon electronics markets in Seoul, South Korea

in Videos by Ian | 4 comments

This week we take you on a Global Geek Tour of the electronics markets in Seoul, South Korea. Seoul isn’t known for its markets like Tokyo or Shenzhen, but with electronics giants like Samsung based here there’s a huge and thriving scene.

We visit Yongsan, then stop by Hacker Space Seoul before heading into the depths of Cheonggyecheon.

Check out our pictures and reports from earlier in the week.

We’ve got everything you need to take your own Geek Tour. Check out our map of Yongsan and map of the Cheonggyecheon area. There’s also a Google Map layer to print or load on your phone.

Don’t forget our previous Global Geek Tour of Akihabara Electric Town in Tokyo, Japan.

    That is cool! Thanks for the video, makes me want to jump on a plane ( Finnair of course :P ) and visit those stores for myself.

  2. I know I’m not the only one who noticed the talking toilet seats 40 seconds in. Believe me, been there, tried that: not worth it.

    Wow! I’m telling the guys at Akihabara to stock on SMD parts to increase their geek factor :)

    It would be nice to have a look at the 3D printer plans that HSS built.
