There are a lot of ginseng shops in the market.

The reason that Creatrip got in partnership with Sejong Ginseng is that out of the many stores, ginseng and ginseng processed goods can be purchased at a lower cost.

If you certify that you are a Creatrip member,

Ginseng processed products (dried ginseng) can be purchased at a 10% discount.

Ginseng processed products that most tourists buy are between ₩ 50,000 and ₩ 80,000,

We recommend that you make a purchase according to your shopping budget, because the price varies depending on the size.

It is said that red ginseng extract as well as dried ginseng processed products are popular.

When I was a student studying long hours, I constantly ate red ginseng extract, and I could maintain my health and thus, not get exhausted easily.

When you are tired, Korean ginseng is the best for your health.   

The price of fresh ginseng differs depending on the size and produced year, and since Sejong ginseng is a wholesale market, prices of the same ginseng are different every day.

Averagely, ginseng 300g costs about ₩ 10,000 ~ ₩ 14,000. Please note the price difference might be bigger in the summer times. 

There are many people who think that raw ginseng  is not allowed to be brought into the airport.

However, the truth is that if soil is removed from raw ginseng and vacuum-packed, you will not be flagged by customs.

If you talk to the store staff, they will wash away the dirt and vacuum pack it.

Sejong Ginseng operates the store systematically, and the inside is very clean.

Various ginseng can be grasped at a glance, and price fluctuations are not so severe so it is a very trustworthy store.

Sejong ginseng is a reliable store that specializes in selling only ginseng. 

There are very few shops in the ginseng market where you can buy both fresh (raw) and dried (processed) ginseng. Sejong ginseng is one of those stores where you can luckily get both!  

Sejong ginseng has a staff whose mother tongue is Chinese so if you know Chinese, you will have no trouble communicating.
