Jagalchi Fish Market in Busan
The Jagalchi Fish Market in Busan had a completely different vibe than Noryangin. The market consists of some covered buildings with seafood for sale, but I preferred the street market section myself. Strategically located near the docking area of the largest port in the country, Jagalchi was full of energy with a dense flow of locals sampling the exotic seafood on display. During all of my travels I have never seen so many people eating live eels. After an order for an eel is placed, a local cook would grab one out of a bucket and as it continued to squirm they would place it directly into a fire-hot grill. I didn’t let this ruin my appetite though. I walked through this massive street market and dipped into a nice little seafood restaurant and enjoyed their highly recommended octopus soup. I asked them to hold off on the eel.
Where did I stay in Busan?
During this trip to Busan I decided to stay at Elysee Hotel Busan. I found my room here to be affordable, clean and the property is in a convenient spot (especially if you want to check out the fish market). At the time of writing it had a score of 8.1/10 based on 1266 verified guest reviews. It is important for you to know that we don’t have a direct affiliation with this specific property.
