Dae-In, night market

If Chiangmai has the night bazaar, Gwangju has an answer to it. Dae-In night market, solely for the local, by young artists and vendors.

Price-wise it is very cheap and diverse with items.

Here I had the cheapest meal, 1000 won($1.30) noodle dish that didn’t taste yak but was surprisingly well cooked for the price.


Garlic-chive fritter on a bamboo-wired dish costs only $2.


Lots of art scene here.


A mum teaches a girl how to spend money without feeling guilty when her husband is hard working completely wet in the rain.


Small pots of cactis goes for $1.30.


This street gallery have sections for each artist by PYUNG( 3.24 square meters).

My favourite of the night.  Very well carved characters on the water melons. These guys open up the lids and scoop out the water melons’ flesh into a cup, mix with ice, then off it goes for $2.60 a bowl.


A personalized stamp in a jade stick, an old time security method used by emperors, merchants and army officers. Now signature replaced this. One with your name engraved will cost about $26.
