Amazing market, amazing city

The market was the most amazing we've ever seen. Most species were still alive - in tanks with running water and oxygen flowing constantly. And there was no odor! Super clean... read more

It's just another market but it is interesting to just look at people's life here. There are pretty much elderly in this area. A place where you can pop by and just take a look.

The market was the most amazing we've ever seen. Most species were still alive - in tanks with running water and oxygen flowing constantly. And there was no odor! Super clean. My research of Busan painted a picture of a boring, not-much-to-see city. We found it to be vibrant and very clean and the shopping options were very upscale. It... More

For me it was a Metro stop just before Gamcheon Cultural Village and a great place to take some pictures. For those who don't mind the smell and sight of raw fish! Great to see the vendors preparing the... More

The market has many small partitioned restaurants within the market where you can choose your seafood and the seller will cook it for you. However, I decided to try the buffet OASE seafood buffet. It may... More

...This is the place to visit! Located next to Busan Port and very near Biff shopping area, this is the largest fish market I have ever visited. Row upon row of every type of fish imaginable - and many species I've never seen before! Although I love visiting markets and I enjoyed visiting this one, I felt it was very... More

The Jagalchi fish market has everything imaginable. Check out the eel, crab, lobster, and octopus, among many others. You simply walk up and down the aisles and see the vendors and their products for sale.There is a restaurant upstairs.

Bought crabs, shrimps, lobsters, clams... We would like to have bbq seafood. The staff on second floor asked us 'steam steam?' 'bbq bbq?' I replied 'bbq', and we have all the seafood steamed (or boiled because the seafood is tasteless).
