The place was the first spot we visited after arriving in Busan and we found it underwhelming. The market outside was much more interesting and cheaper. The stores and items are rather pricey. Since we weren’t keen on seafood and the stores were also quite...More

You can enjoy fresh and live seafoods here. Name it from King crab (starting from 50,000w~ small), fishes, octopus 🐙 and more.

Massive fish market of epic proportions where you can buy pretty much anything that calls the sea home. The smell and the cleanliness leaves something to be desired, but naturally this is to be expected when it comes to the wares on offer. The whole...More

The seafood market is huge and has an amazing variety of seafood. Street food and other restaurants around the area are also good, though the best here is obviously the seafood. It's interesting to see the fish market, but not everybody enters it as it's...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.
