Jagalchi Fish Market, Busan, South Korea


Jump on a high-speed train from Seoul to Busan, a bustling coastal metropolis and Korea’s second city. Visit the massive Jagalchi Fish Market, where merchants and vendors hawk the country’s freshest seafood and cook what they’ve caught right before your eyes. Try blowfish (don’t worry – you won’t be asked to prepare it yourself) for the first time and fill up on grilled flower crab, giant prawns and mussels bigger than your head. Sample raw sea urchin and sea cucumber, the notorious fermented skate (a type of ray), and put your palette on attention in one of Asia’s most remarkable food cities.
