Saw stalls with huge king crabs in water tanks, baskets of many different types of seaweeds. We had lunch at one of the many restaurants with live crabs. The crabs were very sweet! Good place for lunch.

Transportation: New GiJang station Pos: lobby is relatively large and bright Cos: the hotness of carriage made me feeling dizzy n hard to breath... Besides, remember to bring an umbrella, you will need it whenever it's sunny or rainy day in the platform.
