    My favourite spot in Busan! Strolling along the colourful houses felt like a dream! The alleys that are vibrantly decorated with murals and sculptures making them a perfect spots to take pictures 📸

    I went with a co-worker. We ate fried fish and sides. There are many fresh seafood places along the strip. All are good.

    Another big market selling the usual live /dried seafood, vegetables, etc, etc.

    But this market is slightly different in that it seems to specialise in crabs.
    Many stalls cum restaurants sells mainly crabs - compared to other markets.

    Along the way, the many crabs sellers tried to convince you to patronize them. Every restaurant seems to be pushing & selling crabs.

    Here the restaurants sells the different live crabs & steam-cook for you as well at no extra cost.
    In Jagalchi, the sellers refers you to a separate restaurant upstairs to cook for you at additional cost.

    One stall/restaurant stands out among all. This middle aged friendly man ( think he is owner) speaks well in perfect English & he skillfully convinced many curious lookers to come & see his crabs. No obligation to buy if we don't want to. No hard sell like the rest.

    No wonder his restaurant is so crowded! He even asked customers like us to take pictures with him & post them on his Facebook page. Brilliant idea. Free advertisements.

    Excellent salesman & businessman indeed!

    This was a faintly busy night market on a warm June evening. All the cooking that was going on all around us further added to the heat load. It was nice that the street was enclosed to protect the food stalls and vendors from the rain but I wonder if the enclosed roof keeps some of the heat inside.

    We tried a number of different items from various food stalls but the following stood out:

    A vegetarian noodle dish with a drizzle of some brown sauce came from a friendly Filipina whose noodle stand was right in the middle of the street. It was a little oily but flavorful.

    Fish cakes from Gamasot came as plain or four cheese filled ones on their own bamboo sticks. They were placed in a cup and a ladle full of broth (used to cook the fish cakes) was poured inside. The fish cakes were chewy but the broth was richer than we expected. A side of dukboki (made of rice) was slightly spicy and chewy. This seemed to be the only food stall with seats inside, a definite plus, to get out of the street and rest for a short while. We bussed our own trash after we finished eating.

    Overall a very good, but tight and hot night market.

    This is a narrow road fronted by two rows of shops. Food stalls take up the middle of the road leaving two narrow aisles for pedestrians. Still this place is teeming with life. Worth about two hours for us.

    Search gold7778t in Youtube for video for this place.

    It is disappointed when I was there that night. Almost 70% of the street vendors were close. But I read the official Korea website saying that they open everyday and from 19.00 to midnight. I was there around 9pm. This place is like a regular local market. However, if you want to experience other choice than the tourist area, this may be a good choice for local living experience.

    It is located a five minute walk from Jangsan Metro Station on the green line. In the market you can find fresh fruits, vegetables, sea food and fresh meat. Also they sell condiments, but we need to understand them. Virtually none of the sellers do not speak other languages in addition to Korean, but still very friendly. I was looking for there the Korean version of the Sichuan pepper, but not found.
    The main reason for which is worth visiting the market, if you cook the food yourself, in this market a large selection of good fresh fish and excellent Korean salads.

    This is a very local market where you can find ready made hanbok or textile to make hanbok or korean traditional costume.

    Looking at our hot climate here, hanbok may not be suitable but they are indeed beautiful! Colours vibrant. It is a piece of dress plus a jacket. You can find korean wedding stuff here, plastic seafood platter for symbolic use during wedding, headgear, etc. Just a very interesting market if you want to learn more about local culture.

    We wanted korean souvenir and in the basement, there were plenty. Korean purses, wallets, keychains, magnets. Inexpensive, about $2 and more.
    We bought many souvenir and thus, we enjoy visit to this narket.
    Go to basement and you will find more souvenir. Higher floors have clothing, shoes and in middle more textiles and kitchen or bathroom items.

    The clothings are more local style not the gangnam fashion. More dye art material nade by local artisans. A patch jacket costs 200000 won, a handmade cloth bag costs 400000 won. Material looks like vintage style.

    For art, we dont think it is expensive. Service wise, I think as they serve korean customers, they may not seem customer focus.

    Shops owned mostly by elderly ladies.

    We bought 2 sets of korean wooden painted wedding ducks. 300,000 and 350,000 won
    Wallets 2000 won above.

    The items we bought are very unique. The good thing is all made in korea.

    As the name implies, expect mainly dried seafood products here.

    The place is not busy. Supposed not many tourists will come here unless specifically looking for such dried products.

    Really, it is not an interesting place to visit. Not worth a special trip

    We happened to "chance" upon this market.
