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

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.
