Where to get Camping gas?I will most probably be travelling Korea through April 2013, and would really like to do hikes in the many parks. However, when it comes to food, i own a stove that uses gas canisters, the Coleman campig gas where it screws on and also another that uses solid fuel. Will i be able to get camping type gas canisters in S.Korea and also, at decent prices? Or would it be easier looking for solid fuel? Thank you:)

1Universal screw-on canisters (Primus, Alps ?, Coleman and Markill), are easy to find in S. Korea, in most outdoors shops and some supermarkets and DIY stores. Coleman will probably be the most usual brand.
Campng-Gaz, as far as I remember, not much.
I did find solid fuel (esbit and army supply-like brands) in a few shops, mainly in Seoul and Busan, in larger outdoors shops.

2Thank you very much!! I think my title was a little misleading but i use the universal screw on type:) One other question if you can kindly answer, i realised that there are quite a few stoves of rather renowned brands that are made in korea, will it be cheaper for one to buy stoves and in general, camping supplies in south korea? Because ive seen other forum about hiking gear being very expensive there, but it wasnt specified if it meant clothing, bags etc. or camping supplies like gas, stoves, mess tins. Thank you very much once more:)

3Even if it was some years ago, I remember seeing korean made stoves (the tiny, screw-on kind) to be easily available and not expensive at all. If you spend some days in Seoul, there is a cluster of outdoors shops by the Dongdaemun market, and Jongno station.
