I really loved Jungbu Market. I just love traditional market. The market is very clean, with no fishy smells. Friendly Ajumma sells varieties dried fish, squids, seaweed, gingseng etc. The market definitely a fun place to look around. I just loved visiting traditional market.

I've never seen so many different types of dried fish. Even if you're not buying anything it's still a sight to see. Its a great place to visit.
