Jeju Island Day 7 & 8 and Back to Busan

Good morning Dongmun-ro, we took a morning walk around the vicinity and later we checked out to visit an old famous market and an underground shopping mall in Jeju City.
Jeju Dongmun Traditional Market was established after the liberation in 1945. Due to a big fire that broke out in March 1954, the whole market and the nearby area was reduced to ashes. One of the most popular traditional markets in Jeju, Dongmun has served countless customers, selling a variety of items.
Attractive street fooda are everywhere to entice you to try one or two.
The mood was high, appetite was good and we got to try these gorgeous food in the market.
From food to fashion and souvenirs.
Food like kimchee and live shell abalone seen in the market and there are more to see in this spacious market.
Jeju Jungang Shopping Mall is beneath a street and it stretches along a more or less a straight street (Jungang) and having approximately 300 shops. We could not find any lift or escalators to get down, I just wonder how would the handicapped get themselves to the mall.
Jeju old government office known as Mokgwana.
Seomun Market reminded me of Daegu Seomun Market and its street foods as we rode by this spot.
We were too early to check in for our accommodation and decided to try Mom's Touch fried chicken which is a few doors away from Mir Guesthouse. 
Mom's Touch fried chicken is delicious, I had it together with the local beer and it surely well paired.
And we were back to Mir Guesthouse again, our pre-booked accommodation and that will be our last night in Jeju Island.
One more time we wanted to savour the all talk about black pork of Jeju and this time we tried it at this shop near Mir Guesthouse called "MJ".
This place has excellent BBQ meat it is even better than the one we had at Black Pork Street. The meat is fired over heated small stones and the taste & aroma was super duper good.

Day 8
Goodbye Youngseok Koh & Mir Guesthous, thank you for your hospitality and we hope to see you again in the future.
After a short ride to Jeju International Airport, we packed our bicycles in the airport itself and were ready to check in for our next destination, that is Busan.
There go our bicycles in the Dimpa bags and we shall see them in Busan.
At the Busan International Airport and waiting for the Airport Limousine bus to take us to Busan Station.
The bus fare is 6,000 won per pax.
Some of us were familiar with this street as we dragged our stuffs to Dongyang Motel.
Here we were at Dongyang Motel and we will be staying in this motel for the next three nights.
After checking in, we took the bicycle path behind Busan Station to Lotte Mall and were glad to be able to see some cherry blossom.
Zuyi had to sleep on a mattress on the floor while the parent on the bed. All were good and comfortable at Dongyang Motel with its signature free popcorns and coffee. Good night and we were looking forward for more cherry blossom.
