Easily accessible from Nampo and Jagalchi metro stations. Nice shopping and food district. Full of young vibes. Nice selection of shops and eateries. Close to Busan Tower with a section linked by an escalator. A must go place in Busan.

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.
