Jeju City Traditional 5 Day Market

Jeju Oh Il Sijang or Jeju Traditional Five Days Market is one of the best place to visit if you are travelling in Jeju. You won't miss it because there's a sign going to the market.

One of the most exciting things to do when travelling is to visit the markets to learn and see the countries culture and what people eat. At first I wasn't interested in going to the market when we travel. I thought it wasn't fun at all but I realized it's the best and most interesting thing to do when travelling. You can see lots of unique stuffs and there are different kinds of food to try.

Although Jejudo is just a part of Korea, I couldn't eat different kinds of food because we lived near the beach where there aren't lots of restaurants that serve delicious food specially street food. Because Jeju is a place for tourists most restaurants don't serve as delicious as in the mainland. They are the kind of restaurants that say hello, eat here and goodbye! Which means you can't come back here anymore so I don't care if it's delicious or not. Goodbye!

So before we left Jeju we decided to visit Oh il sijang. "Oh" (means five) "il" (day) "sijang" (market) to eat snacks or street food that most koreans enjoy. We had hotteok and odeng here. I also bought corn on the next store.

We had tuikkim or fried octopus here. It's delicious and cheap.

Doesn't it look yummy?
