It is a big building with live and dead seafood. There are hundreds of stalls selling either shell fish or all sorts of fishes. We went on a Monday late morning and we only see a few Koreans in this market. I guess most Koreans...More

From the past reviews here, I was gamed and prepared to experience the bargaining for such tourist place. But little did I expect the fee at restaurant (door no.17) was more than the seafood purchased at level 1. To summarise, each dish/seafood is chargable 10k...More

FYI: This is a working fish market...wear sensible shoes (avoid flip flops, high heels and open toe shoes). I have really mixed reviews about this place. Definitely good to snap a few memorable photos but I don't think the locals like it unless you buy...More

We always make it a point to visit local markets during our tours to see the kind of fresh food they have. This is more like a huge seafood distribution centre which also does retail sales. Despite coming with empty stomachs, we almost couldn't finish...More

We visited the markets post reading some positive reviews and some not so positive, as well as numerous travel blogs recommending this as a must when coming to South Korea. Well, those that rated it highly must be rating only based on the novelty of...More

plenty of seafood to sea in a market, but wasn't really please with the restaurant. Note that the purchase price of seafood and to cook it is a separate cost altogether. Nothing fantastic about the style of cooking so its probably just worth going there...More

You really shouldn't fault the hawkers for doing their job - hawk all that fresh seafood! And the fun is in the banter in broken korean and english with them and if you are keen to eat the freshest and most diverse, then you should...More

Honestly, it's a great place to eat fresh seafood and have it prepared at one of the many restaurants that are located behind the market ans delivered right to your table. Pros: 1. Friendly merchants who attempt to square dab 2. Fresh sashimi from a...More

I recommend you go to the first restaurant on the left out of the market (at the end) instead of the one on the second floor. No idea what the name is but you’ll see people in blue vests that will take you there after you... More

Each stall might sell you different price. Don’t be too rush to decide, walk around and ask. One crab definitely more than a kg. Take note to ask for the cooking fee. The stall selling the crab and the people who cooking the... More
