Jagalchi fish market

A walk through Busan’s Jagalchi Fish Market is great way to get a peek into what makes South Korea’s second city tick. Located in the Nampo-dong district, next to the harbor, Jagalchi Fish Market is not only a now-tourist attraction, but a real working fish market. Trust me, you want to stop here and eat some hoe, which is similar to Japanese sashimi.

Busan, on the south coast of the Korean peninsula is a dynamic city with a bulging port and burgeoning economy. It’s also virtually off the international tourism radar despite having rich culture, a respectable food scene, and an energetic nightlife.
