It it probably just a street with hundreds of vendors to most, but the types of “street” food available is worth the visit. Be prepared for a multitude of tourists and visitors. Souvenirs galore at reasonable prices. If you’re in Busan, you should visit the...More

Like some other reviewers said, if you are not from Asia, probably this is an eye opener but being from Asia, this is just another typical market. Plenty of nice photo shots opportunity though.

As the market is in the form of individual stores. So it depends on individually. However they are usually opened from 9:00-22:00 and closed on first and third Sunday of the month.
