Saw stalls with huge king crabs in water tanks, baskets of many different types of seaweeds. We had lunch at one of the many restaurants with live crabs. The crabs were very sweet! Good place for lunch.

Transportation: New GiJang station Pos: lobby is relatively large and bright Cos: the hotness of carriage made me feeling dizzy n hard to breath... Besides, remember to bring an umbrella, you will need it whenever it's sunny or rainy day in the platform.

So many kinds of things sold here with quite affordable price. This place located near Nampo and other market that why if you only have short time to visit Busan, you can go here after or before going to Nampo area

The market is a little out of the place, but for the price difference of the king crabs, I think it's a place worth travelling to. Generally I surveyed King Crabs would cost about 70,000KRW per kilo in Jagalchi Market. Here, in Gijang Market, it's...More
