Years ago the market sold a wide range of delicacies. However, it mainly sells crab these days. The drive to sell typically makes the sellers shout and try to herd you into their stall. Overall, it was not the greatest experience. If you are specifically...More

Saw stalls with huge king crabs in water tanks, baskets of many different types of seaweeds. We had lunch at one of the many restaurants with live crabs. The crabs were very sweet! Good place for lunch.

Transportation: New GiJang station Pos: lobby is relatively large and bright Cos: the hotness of carriage made me feeling dizzy n hard to breath... Besides, remember to bring an umbrella, you will need it whenever it's sunny or rainy day in the platform.

So many kinds of things sold here with quite affordable price. This place located near Nampo and other market that why if you only have short time to visit Busan, you can go here after or before going to Nampo area
