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.
