It it probably just a street with hundreds of vendors to most, but the types of “street” food available is worth the visit. Be prepared for a multitude of tourists and visitors. Souvenirs galore at reasonable prices. If you’re in Busan, you should visit the...More

Like some other reviewers said, if you are not from Asia, probably this is an eye opener but being from Asia, this is just another typical market. Plenty of nice photo shots opportunity though.

This is a really big market and we were soon lost in the crisscrossing alleys. You can get food, souvenirs, clothes, etc here. Can easily spend half a day or more here if you try to browse everything.

It's a really big market filled with vintage clothes shops and regular jewelry/socks stands. A lot of the vintage stores have piles of clothes for 1000-3000, so if you want to dig a little bit you can find nice things for really cheap.

Like a huge indoor fresh food and misc goods market. Almost anything you can think of especially if it’s food related. There are some places you can grab a bite to eat on the go. Other places are for shopping like seafood, meat and veggies....More

As the market is in the form of individual stores. So it depends on individually. However they are usually opened from 9:00-22:00 and closed on first and third Sunday of the month.

As for the cafe, lots of cafes to choose from nearby. There are so many shops that I didn't notice specificity of such goods per stall.
