“Definitely hit up Jagalchi Fish Market!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2013

There's a nice view at the port, but the real winner is the fish market! Not only is there a huge selection of different sea creatures to gawk at (or buy), but there are little restaurants set up upstairs. We just pointed to pictures to order-- and everything tasted great! I had this dish with white rice and fresh, raw fresh. We also ordered the live octopus- it's a must-do! It's a little weird at first, but it tastes good. They don't kill the octopus right in front of you, they just bring the tentacles to you- which are still moving! Crazy. And they serve it with a really tasty dipping sauce. Of course, they serve everything with all the banchan (side dishes).

If you're in the port area, you definitely have to stop by the fish market and check out all the fish and eat here for lunch!

“Huge Port coverage”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

Visit the fishing port close to Gudji Market, a scenary in it self, to see Asien fishing vessels landing fish which often is being sold close by!

“smells like fish!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012

not surprising that it smells like fish, because its close to jagalchi market which is great for food. that being said, I'm not sure why the port is an attraction. It is best viewed from Busan Tower or the top of Lotte.

“Jagalchi Fish Market FTW!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2012

The best thing about the Busan port area is the sprawling fish market - there is an indoor one, right at the port and an outdoor market.

If you love fresh fish and love visiting wet markets - this is place is a must. Lots of interesting seafood - some in aquariums, some dried. You can eat live octopus - the kind that still wiggles after 2 hours of being chopped up, kind of like a Fear Factor challenge - it's chewy and delicious!

Many seafood restaurants and stalls selling seafood snacks around the area too. Be sure to bring your camera, as you'll capture pictures of unique sea creatures.
