We stayed at Terra Guesthouse on the 7th floor of Jagalchi Market. The opposite of the main entrance of Jagalchi Market, you can find many adjumma waiting at their restaurant inviting you to dine in. Most of the seafood restaurant, the food are good. Try the eel cooking on the hot plate. Take the non spicy ones. We took three main dishes that costs 30,000 wons per small plate should be enough for 9 person because most restaurants provide a lot of side dishes. You can also dine on the 2nd or 5th floor of Jagalchi Market. The 5th floor provide buffet lunch and dinner. I remember seeing the cost is about 40,000 wons per person. If you like to purchase dried pack seaweed go to the Dried Fish Wholesale Market which is about 5 minutes walk on the right side of Jagalchi Market after the row of restaurants or the 2nd floor of Jagalchi Market besides the seafood restaurant.

Shopping - Start from Gwangbokro shopping street to Gukje Market then to Changseong Food Alley, BIFF Square, Jagalchi Market to Nampo Underground Shopping Street. (Gwangbokro Underground Shopping Complex). The merchandise are not cheap. You can't bargain. Go to the International Wholesale In Gukje Market. Try to walk between the alley behind BIFF Square. Not many people knew that merchandise there are cheaper. I was given this information during my 12 days stayed by a citizen. You can bargain up to 40% if you knew how to communicate in Korean Language. Most of the Busan citizen could not communicate in English well. It would be a great advantage if you study 30% of their language before you arrived in Busan.

Go to Yongdusan Park. It would be a great experience during the night visit. You could see Busan all light ups from the tower. It is on the left side of Gwangbokro Shopping Street. Look out for a signboard and the elevators almost at the end of the street. You need to pay 4,000 wons per person to go up the tower. Bring along design padlocks, write your loved notes and hung it along side of the verandah at the park for memory.

From Gimhae International Airport to Nampodong-gu by taxi would be around 29,000 wons. If you are travelling alone backpacking like us, it would be more advisable to take Light Rail (the purple line) to Sasang which is only 3 stops from airport. Adults fare 1,300 wons, child below 12 years 650 wons and teenagers 13 - 18 years 1,050 wons per person. Transit to the Green Line at Sasang station. Sasang station is near Lotteria. Purple Line to Sasang Station is about 500 meters or about 10 minutes walk. You may purchase your ticket up to Jagalchi Station. Sasang Station is on the GREEEN Line. Please transit from Seomyeon Station to ORANGE Line. Sasang Station to Seomyeon Station are 8 stops. Seomyeon Station to Jagalchi Station are 9 stops using ORANGE Line. Adults fare about 1,700 wons, child 950 wons and teenagers 1,150 wons.

May you have an enjoyable journey using this information given. I just came back from Busan 5 days ago.

For value for money shopping, this is a place to go. It is within the yongdusan park area. One suggested itin is to start from Gwangbokro shopping street to Gukje market, then to Changseongdang Food Alley, BIFF Square, Jagalchi market and then Nampo underground shopping street.

Shops are about the same in Seoul. But the push carts stores and the food are cheaper than Seoul. Spend and enjoy here.

This walking street is really fantastic with all kinds of shop and many back lanes shops selling many local selections.
There are many statues, seating place and flowers pots being installed or placed along the street to add the vibrancy. Allowing visitors to stop and take a rest and admire the displays or flowers. There are also many visitors taking photographs of the street and surroundings.
Take your time to walk along the street, notice the fashion, enjoy the café & local delights and walk into the back lane.

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.

Interesting shopping street with a lot of artistic bronze statues dotting it. Walk along it to BIFF Square and also cross to Gukje market where a lot of bargains and souvenirs can be found. Bee Cheng Hiang is also here. A lot of restaurants, cafes and street vendors make this a popular meeting area for the well heeled and hip young crowds. From here you can also walk to Yongdusan Park and Lotte department store. Subway just around the corner.

This place is popular amongst the youngsters and tourists. I visit there several times and noticed there are more happenings during weekends. On Sunday afternoon, can see street vendor demonstrating the making of popcorn the traditional way. People selling handicraft of grasshopper and frogs made from leaves.

This place is like A smaller version of Myeongdong of Seoul. I prefer to shop here then Myeongdong as I find that the sales staff here are less pushy and aggressive.

Gwangbok-ro is also where you can find the escalator to Yongdusan Park where Busan tower is located.

Well, this area is not just a street. It is a street with all sorts of interesting shops. So many cafés and eateries to choose from. Although it is not the longest street there is, I seemed to just keep going back and forth for 3 days. Kept trying out the different cafes and each time I would come to notice things like the different bronze sculptures, the boards containing descriptions of nearby places of interest including the description of the Yongdusan & Busan Tower. You can also find all sorts of boutiques and shoes shops. You can find just about anything I suppose. Not far from the area are the underground shopping malls, the Lotte Shopping Plaza, BIFF Square. I walked and did not even realise the distance. That is how interesting I find this place was. Will be bringing my sister there this weekend ;)

Gwangbokro is a street flanked by retail shops that reminded me of Orchard Road in Singapore. You can find many brands of fashion here from the well known ones to the lesser known ones, but nothing really different other than a nicer looking street. Prices are average so don't expect to find a bargain here too.

One good thing about this place is that it's very well-connected to the other attractions around like Busan Tower, BIFF Square and Gamcheon Village, so you can just include it as a stop when you're visiting the area. Otherwise not really a must see.
