  • Jagalchi market is far bigger and picturesque than Gijang. Od you want to buy crab or fish it may be cheaper in Gijang but if one wants just to look and eat some seafood I do not recommend this...  more »

  • Excellent, fresh seafood. Had king crab, that fought for it's life all the way to the steamer. Three of us couldn't eat it all, we took the leftovers home and made fried crab cakes.
  • We had our king crab here at Gijang market. Extra tips, when you wanted to dine in, just use your skills in negotiating the best price before you proceed, especially for a tourists like us. They had a different charge for the food and table charge. Most of the restaurant table charge is KRW4,000. But we manage to get it at KRW3,000. The king crab that we ate is undeniably fresh and taste good. We went to Gijang Market from Haeundae Beach area by Taxi which cost us KRW8,500
