Jagalchi Fish Markets
If you're in Busan, you have to visit the Jagalchi Fish Market!  It's almost compulsory.  Busan is famous for its seafood and this is the largest fish market in Korea. So if you want fresh seafood (raw or cooked), this is where you go.

They have everything from mackerel, sea squirts (ascidians) and creatures I've never seen before.  Most of the people who sell the fish are women, and are called 'Jagalchi Ajumma'.

We made our way to the markets quite early in the morning, so missed all the action of the night time festivities, but we were able to have a great look around.

Directions
Jagalchi Station (Busan subway line 1), Exit 10.
Turn right onto Jagalchi 3(sam)-gil Street.
Walk for 5min, then turn left to arrive at Jagalchi Market.
