Jagalchi Market is our first stop in Busan as it is very famous among the tourist. Of course, we were extremely fascinated by the abundant of seafood in this market, outdoor and indoor. The large spider crabs, octopus, clams, abalone, fishes, etc were fascinating. We had our meals there at 3 different restaurants/stalls - beside the open air market, opposite... More

Seafood paradise. You may pick the fresh seafoods and request the restaurant to cook for you, be it hotpot or grilled.

I saw things there I didn't know existed. What a great place, fish everywhere, clams everywhere, people everywhere. And it just keeps going and going. There are outside stalls, buildings, covered areas, restaurants, an amazing variety of ways to sell fish. The place is as clean as any fish market can be, and I noticed very little odor, but of...

Lots of different style of fish and seafood on sale as its's more like a wet market in front of the building and in the first floor inside the building. Also tried the seafood and blue crab soup in a restaurant which is loacted in the second floor. A very nice view and the portions were pretty big (despite calling... More

The market is not much of a sight if you have seen fish markets else where but the seafood prepared by the surrounding restaurants are ultra fresh and tasty. You ought to have a feed there, try the medium crab/seafood soups (they are more like a big big pot) that could easily feed two or three people. Most of the... More

I had big expectations about this fish market. It's not so clean or organized like the one that I visited in Tokyo. And the food court area is messy. And the restaurants around it don't look great. I wish I could have had the same food experience I had in Tokyo. The fish and seafood diversity is impressive. And the... More

If you like fresh seafood, cooked in local korean style, this is a must go place. Walking distance from Nampo or Jagalchi subway stations, there is a stretch of street selling dried and fresh seafood. Inside Jagalchi market ground floor are fresh seafood stalls. Choose and negotiate for the best price, let the owner know how you want the seafood... More
