  • A wide variety of food and restaurant market. They had fresh fish and meat, it's also different snacks that might solve the exodus exodus! Fraudulent home seems to be popular, hanrabong juice, Octopus-shaped bread (?) Also sell it. .. Hanrabong chocolate or citrus tarts, etc seem to sell a lot of souvenirs of Jeju during the trip and take a good buy!

  • The street food is above average. I am very disappointed with a fruit shop. That fruit shop is number 40. The attitude of the ajuma is very rude. She shouted to us while we want to buy permission. Please don't go to fruit shop number 40 that selling the mandarin and persimmon. I feel that she is very racist with the foreigner. Hopefully the KTO will look into this.
  • Not my kind of fish market place. It's just... fishy... maybe if I can cook like a local in my own house, it's worth a visit. If you're just a tourist who can't cook at the hotel room like me, then you can skip this place entirely.
  • Y'know what, you can buy fish and ship it to Seoul for free. You don't have to carry it with you to the airport and worry about all that. The fish is fresh, but make sure you can speak Korean
  • A great place to visit for shopping, groceries, trinkets, candy, and clothes. A traditional Korean market.
  • Typical Korean marked, with emphasis on seafood. But, here the Koreans on holiday are buying presents for family and friends and the vendors ship them directly. This includes fresh fish...
