A long street of shops

Shops are about the same in Seoul. But the push carts stores and the food are cheaper than Seoul. Spend and enjoy here.

This is nearby Jagalchi fish market, good place after dinner. Jagalchi fish market is good place for dinner : fried fish, eel, raw fish (= hoei, sushi). After dinner walk around here and go up to Youngdusan park and Busan tower. Busan is a kind of film city, enjoy the trend of fashion here.

This is a place with fashion shops and some restaurants but nothing fancy, I would rather shop in Seoul more than Busan.

the fashion street has a lot of brands and you can find some pretty cheap stuffs here. You can hardly find a rubbish bin and a lot of garbage just throw in the planter box and roadside. Beware of car coming when you walk here.

There are may stalls in this street selling garments as well as food. Most of the people there are not able to speak English or any other languages.

From Yongdusan Park we came down via escalator and arrived in this area. A lively winding road lined with shops. If its still not enough, there's Lotte Dept store nearby. Its a goos connection between the park and BIFF and Jalgachi.

Interesting shopping street with a lot of artistic bronze statues dotting it. Walk along it to BIFF Square and also cross to Gukje market where a lot of bargains and souvenirs can be found. Bee Cheng Hiang is also here. A lot of restaurants, cafes and street vendors make this a popular meeting area for the well heeled and hip... More
