Gyodong Daeryong-ri Market
Located in Gyodongdo, Ganghwa-gun, the whole market exudes the feeling and characteristics of 60-70 years, and most of the traditional buildings are preserved. It was originally built by a group of people who escaped the war and made it to Gyodongdo Island. Each of them even used the characteristics of their own countryside as a layout to solve their homesickness. Different styles of murals and wooden decorations can be seen everywhere in the streets. Ganghwa-gun government departments are still committed to preserving various signs that have a long history, which is a popular background for punching cards. In the market, the old hair salons and snack shops are still standing, and you can taste the most authentic cinnamon sugar cakes, Shuanghe tea and twisted doughnut! If you like the retro feel, you can go to the tea house, which used to be a Korean coffee shop~
