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

The fish market is a must in Busan. It is easy to find: by public transportation (bus or subway - line 1) busan city tour bus (hop on/off). We went there around lunch timel. The stalls was offering all sorts of living, dried or salted creatures from the sea : fishes, crabs, shrimps, snails, shellfishs, mussels, squids, octopuses, seaweeds ...... 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

There's a nice view at the port, but the real winner is the fish market! Not only is there a huge selection of different sea creatures to gawk at (or buy), but there are little restaurants set up upstairs. We just pointed to pictures to order-- and everything tasted great! I had this dish with white rice and fresh, raw... More

not surprising that it smells like fish, because its close to jagalchi market which is great for food. that being said, I'm not sure why the port is an attraction. It is best viewed from Busan Tower or the top of Lotte.

The best thing about the Busan port area is the sprawling fish market - there is an indoor one, right at the port and an outdoor market. If you love fresh fish and love visiting wet markets - this is place is a must. Lots of interesting seafood - some in aquariums, some dried. You can eat live octopus -... More
