Directions:Take Subway Line 1 to Jagalchi Station. Come out from Exit 7.Walk straight and turn left to find yourself in the heart of the square 5 minutes later.You can never leave Korea without visiting the seafood markets that they are so known for. Jagalchi Market is by far the largest fish market in Korea. Set in a modern 7-storey building by Nampo port, you can find the freshest catch here, since all the seafood are caught on the coast of Busan and Korea's South Sea. There are also outdoor fish stalls selling in the vicinity in the mornings which you can venture to - the Jagalchi Gomjangeo Alley and the Changseon-dong Eatery Alley.The highlight of this visit is to sample some raw fish (or live octopus, if you prefer)! In fact, you can even have a taste of raw abalone if you wish. That was exactly what I did when I was there. Out of the 7 storeys, the ground floor is a wet market full of live seafood of every imaginable species swimming in colourful tubs. The 2 nd floor is where you find rows of restaurants offering what they claim to be the best price for a satisfying seafood meal.
