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

Visited the Jagalchi Market and first of all was impressed that I wasn't knocked over by the smell of fish because the fish are very fresh! My husband and I looked at all the wonderful kinds of sea life (not everything was a fish) then we stopped at one of the many restaurants in the market and had the most... More

If you like your seafood than this is the place to come. It is Korea's largest seafood market with a fleet of robust fishing boats delivering the latest catch directly to the stalls day & night. Such is the massive variety of fresh seafood that it can be a little daunting figuring out where to begin. There are two market... More

If you're a seafood lover, you shouldn't miss Jagalchi Market. It's a seafood heaven! There is an open-air market and an indoor market. Both sell seafood of many variety. For the indoor market, you can buy the seafood and bring to the restaurant at the first floor to have them cook it for you. In the first floor too, there... More

I don't know about the price of the live/raw fish, but the fish in the restaurants on the second floor and at the buffet on the seventh floor are both much more expensive than the shops directly across the street. I would visit the market just to see it, however, before you purchase a meal, it will likely save your... More

Seafood heaven, and a sight to see.... if you are in the area, do pass by and view the market. Under the roof, the market is pleasant to visit as there's no worries from the heat and rain. There's lots of food outlet at the upper floor. Enjoy the atmosphere and food. Outside the streets nearby, The same interesting sight... More

The ground floor was full of stalls which all kinds of seafood available. I had to stop a few times at some stalls to capture some photos as some seafoods are rare to be seen in Malaysia. We ordered and tasted the seafood at the second floor and it's very delicious.

This is a must do in busan. Personally we rate it better than the Seoul fish market. So much produce and so varied and fresh. You have to spend at least a few hours walking around and then go to one if the numerous restaurants that will prepare your food for you. If you like seafood you will love this... More

The first time being in Busan, and my friends told me I had to come to this place. There are so many types of seafood. Everything is so fresh and yummy. Don't go there too early in the morning; otherwise, you end up paying more at the outside street area if you want to eat the seafood. And remember to... More

This is my last stop in Busan knowing that I can't really shop around and take home these goodies up for sale. They have a wide selection of seafoods and for lovers of seafoods, this will be haven. There are also some restaurants around the area where you can buy fresh ingredients in the market and have them cook it.... More
