Places in Eastern Jeju-do
Sehwa-ri & Hado-ri
The highlight of the small fishing town of Sehwa-ri is the Haenyeo Museum, which does an excellent job explaining the history and culture of these amazing haenyeo women; buses plying the Jeju-si to Seongsan route stop near the museum entrance. Dasi Boesi serves delicious feasts of grilled mackerel and tofu stew as well as black-pork bulgogi.
Seongeup Folk Village
A 10-minute bus ride north of Pyoseon lies this former provincial capital, where government assistance has encouraged the preservation and renovation of the traditional rock-walled, thatched-roofed houses. Modern intrusions include souvenir shops, restaurants and car parks, but most of it still looks fantastically feudal.
