    A relatively large number of stores selling similar things. What you want and going out less, no nothing, especially the child to you as a souvenir. Came up in the narrow market motorcycles and cars, dangerous.

    walking in the local dongmun market, I was impressed with a lots of fresh fish shops. I can observe how local people work and enjoy their normal life. Seafood is fresh and at reasonable price!  more »

    It's just the traditional market. Don't go expecting a lot. Just looked back at me only to come near the entrance. Don't buy anything. This is in the style of other selling.

    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...

    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

    More of a tourist destination than for locals, very repetitive. Hallabong oranges are delicious (at least at this time of year - mid-March - look for a shiny skin and a heavy weight. If you scratch the skin you should be able to smell it easily). We got 3 very tasty oranges for 7000 won. Unlike regular oranges, skin colour is usually a good indicator of taste for tangerines so look for a more reddy colour). Worth a stop if you're in jeju for a while, but not a must.

    Still a tourist attraction where you can try some Korean snacks. You can buy tangerine there.
