  • Busan is famous for its port city and its seafood is also delicious. Fresh seafood can be cheaper in the Jagalchi market. The staff on the first floor were also able to speak simple Japanese. The ingredients you purchase are cooked on the second floor. It is necessary to cook for about 5000W.

  • The city of Sagachi is almost a place of the sea, the sea is so numerous that it is worth returning tickets to visit the city to see all kinds of marine creatures. You can enjoy the meal on the meal after you finish the sea. If you can't stand the smell of the city, you can go to the harbor outside the city to enjoy the light, it is sunny or rainy, different feelings.

  • Great place for some of the best snow crab and seafood. The right way to eat it is steam. That's it. Only draw back of the place is if you don't speak or read Korean, it will be a tough time to communicate, and your choice is limited as some places do not serve tourist but only locals. Very unique place with assorted seafood. The fish spicy soup should not be missed. The BBQ squid along the street is a must try. The aroma of the sea will fill you up and if you are not use to wet market smell, you are in for a treat.
  • Eating is all you do here and shopping too. Fresh fish as far as you can smell, this is the biggest fish market in Korea and second largest in Asia. It's pretty clean and you can also have your seafood cooked the traditional Korean way right on the spot. Try the fish cake, there is also a nearby walking street for shopping as well, you can spend a day or two here.
