Actually the fish market was rather ok, but the whole experience was destroyed by the exorbitant price we had to pay for dinner at Jacky’s seafood. Only found out that we should have avoided it completely after reading more reviews about this place and that...More

It’s a bucket list thing - once and prob won’t return. Typical wet market, lots of fresh seafood, water splashing all over your feet. Fresh seafood, too many choices. Fresh abalone sashimi is not that nice afterall. It’s so chewy!!! We also had a fried...More

A market with lots of fresh seafood but very much prefer Tsukiji fish market. So-so place for me sand perhaps a place to visit if you absolutely love seafood.

Seafood is a bit pricy. If you have a Korea driver or tour guide … ask them to help you order food. They have 2 price list for tourist and local.

We got to the market in the early morning 8am during the week and definitely was not crowded but by 10am we noticed it more crowded that we had to keep an eye out for each other to avoid having to find each other.
