Tips for you
“One stop market” I like to explore super markets in different cities and different countries. It's a good way to see what people are eating. Sometime when I have the courage, I will tried some of the local food. Dongmun Market is one of the popular traditional markets in Jeju. It is big, clean and colourful. They sell all kinds of stuff, like fruit, fresh or dry (some in gift boxes), vegetables, dry mushrooms, herbs, spices and fresh or dry sea food. There are some restaurants ready to serve you. They even sell clothing there. We walked around and took photos, but no one came to pressure us to buy stuff, I like that. Happy Travelling!
