[D2.1] Punggi Ginseng Market (풍기인삼시장)

Arrived at Punggi Train Station.
Nothing fancy but it’s a favourite spot for many. 🙂

Pretty view! That’s Sobaeksan National Park (소백산국립공원) by the way~ ^^

Walk about 30m..

Uh huh, here we are for the cheap YET fresh Ginseng! 😀

Endless rows of stores selling Ginseng.
 Most of them are selling the same items, but maybe their ‘services’ were different.
(The ‘services’ I meant here was the freebies they would give you!)

One of the pretty lady cleaning the ginseng~ ^^

I was ‘tasked’ by my mother to get some home though and I was spoilt by choices. =/
The price range of these ginseng starts from 30,000won for 1.5pounds (750gram).

In the end..
I got 2 boxes of the honey sliced red ginseng.
It’s CHEAP! 20mini boxes cost me 45,000won?! *:O

After our mini shopping, off we grab a cab on the street and heading to the next destination..

Check out my next entry on where we are heading to! ^^
