A lot of seafood could be found. Price was a bit high though, be prepared that everything was for tourists.

Amazing. You can go any time and will see plenty of fish! The restaurant in the second floor is very simple and expensive. But you will eat the best fish!

If traveling in Busan this is definitely a must see market! It’s right off the Jagalchi metro stop. Even if you’re not willing to eat there it’s really cool to just walk through. You won’t be sorry!

A must-go in Busan. Many interesting type of seafood and local delights. We were very intrigued by the various species. There are also a lot of seafood restaurants that allow you to have your fresh produce cooked and consumed upstairs.

Go here for the freshest seafood. Pick out what you want to eat and then have it prepared upstairs. Great start to the day.

It was quite impressive on how they are so organised but I am not so surprised after being exposed on how fish markets are in South Korea. It is always nice how they stacked the fish and seafood and I got to see a few...More

We got to the market in the early morning 8am during the week and definitely was not crowded but by 10am we noticed it more crowded that we had to keep an eye out for each other to avoid having to find each other.
