  • In the Seoul, we will allow vehicles to park along the roads near traditional markets until September 22 to help storeowners in traditional markets enjoy more brisk business. I heard that small-sized restaurants saw their sales increase by 20-30% thanks to the additional parking allowed along roads close to them during lunch break.

    For more information about the details of the temporary parking policy, please visit Seoul’s homepage ( Important information will also be posted by means of signboards and placards. Parking enforcement personnel will be onsite to ensure the smooth flow of traffic.

    I hope that these measures will help improve the business of storeowners in traditional markets.
