  • Quite interesting place to visit, with lots of live seafood, plus dried ones upstairs. Good view behind the building with view of the sea. There is also a boat tour beside the building, where you pay 25000 krw for a 90 mins round trip to some key landmarks departing 4 times a day. Worth checking it out.
  • Must see market! If you just want to experience a fantastic fish market as a tourist, this is the place to go! Lots to see and a great view of the ocean as well. The smell of the market can be a little different.
