Busan, South Korea’s second largest city, is at the Southern end of Korea. Super fast KTX trains make it possible to cover the distance from Seoul in a swift and comfortable three hours ride. As a harbour town complete with seaside hotel blocks, it’s a major draw for Korean travellers. But even if crowded beaches are not for you, there are still enough attractions to keep you busy for a couple of days. One of them is the Jagalchi fish market.
Since fish is usually sold in the form of frozen white blocks at home, there was a lot to see for us and I’d like to share a few images from the market with you. There were several restaurants and food stalls on the market, offering a range of dishes from freshly cut sashimi to fish soup and grilled fish. I mentioned the market already – it was there where I learned to appreciate fish even if it is served with the heads on the plate. Look here to read about that experience.
