Providing terrific photo opportunities, Korea's largest fish market supplies every kind of aquatic life form to restaurants, fish shops and the general public. At the time of research, a multistorey, state-of-the-art complex was nearing completion and should by now be housing the 700 stalls and numerous restaurants that make up the market.

If you want to view the market at its liveliest, get here for the auctions, which kick off around 1am. Otherwise the best time to come is around meal times when the apron-clad vendors will happily sell you produce directly – be it still-live crabs, prawns, and the dark-orange-and-red meongge (Korean sea squirt, very much an acquired taste) or prepared platters of hoe (raw fish slices). You can then take your seafood to several restaurants within the market who will either serve it up to you with a variety of side dishes (usually around W3000 person), or prepare and cook it (starting from an extra ₩5000 depending on what you have). A good one is Busan Ilbeonji .
