This was quite a pretty port at night. The Sapphire Princess provided free shuttles into the main city and we had no trouble finding our way around most of what we found worth visiting.

Nothing could prepare us for this amazing market. I have seen fish markets all over the world, but none can be compared to the wealth of creatures being on sale here. The typical smell is strong - but if you like seafood it won't deter you. Very impressive is the skill of the ladies cleaning the fish, filetting them, and... More

we went here at night and we had our sashimi inside the fish market. The sashimi is fresh. Raw octopus is a new try to me, which is nice if you don't think it's moving... Urchins are a bit salty while oysters are tasty!

Busan Port is just that, a port. Lots of wharves, sea walls, and docks. What is of interest at the Busan Port is the Jagalchi Fish Market and the surrounding shops. Jagalchi is the largest fish market in Busan and has eight floors where you can find everything from live fish to fish products, to restaurants serving every kind of... More

I came here a Sunday afternoon looking for a fish restaurant (that I did not find - but read on :) ), and it was... overwhelming. Fishes and creatures of the sea of all kind, dried and salted and dead and living, the booths competing with each other to show that theirs where better and more alive than each others.... More

I reached Busan on a Sunday and there is cultural performance at the ground floor of Jaglachi Market Building, just on front of the sea. I heard Jaglachi host it's own festival in October every year. There was a 15 min firework at the seaport earlier in October but too bad I've missed it. To have a good view of... More

We went with a aim to see this famous fish market that is near the port. Busan is well known for its shipping industry and ports. We see containers lined along the holding areas as well as fish trawlers along another side of the Busan. The Jalgalchi fish market is overwhelming. The moment I got off the train, I can... More
