Come join us as we visit the biggest fish market and seafood market in South Korea located in downtown Busan (Jagalchi Fish Market - 자갈치시장) where we tour the stalls and interact with the vendors before ordering a delicious Korean raw fish feast known locally as chobap.

The most fascinating experience for us in terms of visiting Busan's largest fish market was just seeing rows upon rows of stalls with vendors interacting with customers, preparing raw fish and seafood on the spot and just noticing all kinds of fish and sea creatures we had never seen anywhere else in our lives before.

After running into a nice Korean man located at stall number 7 we decided to order Korean raw fish from him and then we moved upstairs to the third level to sit on traditional Korean tables low to the ground where we ate the hoe also known as chobap for lunch along with various side dishes and a fish head soup. To wash it all down we drank Korean beer and soju.

Overall, visiting the biggest fish market in Korea was a true highlight from our time in Busan and something we'd highly recommend for visitors to consider as well.

The Biggest Korean Fish and Seafood Market in Busan, Korea | Eating Raw Fish at Jagalchi (자갈치시장):

Hey guys! We are Samuel and Audrey, a vlogging travel couple from Canada. In this travel channel we share our travel and food vlogs while touring the world.

Our most recent trip was to South Korea where I embarked upon a two-week adventure without Audrey. Invited as part of a YouTube vlogging trip, organized by KTO, I spent the first week traveling with other YouTubers in Seoul, Busan and Gyeongju. My second week included independent exploration of Korea with my good friend and fellow YouTuber David of DavidsBeenHere.

Having lived and traveled in South Korea, the chance to return to one of my favorite countries was one of the biggest surprises of 2019. On this particular trip, I had an opportunity to do many things I had not previously covered including a visit to the DMZ (Demilitarized Zone between South Korea and North Korea), a Buddhist Temple Stay and a Korean cooking class. It was almost as if the program designed by KTO knew exactly what I had missed out on before.

Obviously, a huge highlight from the two weeks I spent revisiting Korea was the food. I feasted on all of my favorite Korean dishes including Korean barbecue, dolsot bibimbap, haemul pajeon, tteokbokki, bulgogi, kimbap and many others. I can honestly say that Korean food is world-class and is one of my top 5 favorite cuisines in the world. Aside from trying familiar dishes, I had the opportunity to sample raw Korean seafood for the first time.

While visiting Seoul, highlights included going to Gyeongbokgung Palace, Namsan Seoul Tower, Jogyesa Temple and Hongdae. As one of the biggest cities in the world, I barely scratched the surface of things to do in Seoul.

Spending extended time in Busan was my favorite part about the trip with top highlights including a Korean temple stay, fresh fish markets and a Korean baseball game. It was from Busan that we ended up taking a day-trip to Daegu where we enjoyed a traditional Korean market and tried Galbi-Jjim for the first time.

If you want to see more videos from Korea in the future, let us know in the comments what places you'd like us to travel to and what food experiences you'd like to see on this travel channel.
