This place have a lot of live seafoods. Second flr you can eat the fresh seafood. This place must go and need to take one day to spend here. Nearby here you can walk around. Selling clothes with the reasonable price. Further, from this market you may go to tower by walking may take around 15min.

Make sure you come here during your visit to Busan. As a non-Korean it is a great lesson in the creatures of the sea around Korea and you're guaranteed to see things for sale (and being purchased) that you never knew existed or were edible. We sent some pictures to friends who have studied marine biology and they had no... More

Our Jejuair flight was scheduled at about 6 pm and we need to be at the airport at about 4 pm. Jagaichi market was our first attraction in Busan. In Singapore, I had... More

If you like fresh fish.. this is your place. Dead or alive... its everywhere. You can choose what fish you want for them to even cook it in front of you.

Must see. Traditional seafood market. A taste of real Korea. Jagalchi market is right on the harbor waterfront.

If I'm not wrong, this is very near BIFF area and I just passed by to see what the fuss is about. There's almost no foreigners here and communication could be an issue. Nonetheless it's packed with Koreans which is a testament to the quality of the food here. Check or smell it out :P

It is interesting as spot for visit but it seems little bit expensive for visitors. Need to be checked the cost before hand.

I have never seen a such a big fish market which does not smell, despite having almost all types of live seafood in tanks. This place is really very clean, and the water in most of the tanks seem to be continuously replenished with fresh water. The timing of our visit did not allow us to try out the fresh... More

My friend and I had a great time walking through the world-famous Jagalchi Fish Market in Busan. It was an experience neither of us had ever had before and culturally, quite amazing to see.

I wasn't really planning on buying fish and so it didnt interest me really. I took a quick look to see how it was and then left. Didnt find it special really.
