Time to visit the fish catch on the thinker depending on price variation that doesn't. A bit late than when buying raw anchovies, moderately expensive prices, you had to buy.

  • 2 nights is soul tour for three days and last day afternoon. This fishery market before checked out hotels near Namdaemun put the luggage in the trunk of the taxi drove, was scheduled to arrive. And underpasses to walk through the new market for the new two-storey building next to the old one-story market. No seafood there is a Sunday afternoon, I entered new markets first. Looks like the orderly and Hall. Photos of various marine products are arranged. I am big like crab. So did enjoy the crabs preserved in at a true taste restaurant found fresh crab. This cannot stand! Negotiating the price of a reasonable size and price to find, get (^ o ^) following the hunting of Sea Urchin, purple sea urchin, one extra, and get (^ o ^) and live Octopus? Get guidance in the dining room on the second floor, he asked Cook. Octopus purple sea urchin was opened while cooking the crabs and ugnougno moves, and beer to the accompaniment chamisul, Centennial liquor pounding adversary, already feeling. Was served crab steamed in about 20 minutes. So the season is not good fresh delicious. You can buy cheap kimchi, seaweed and cod roe as a souvenir. I already bought as souvenirs of the kimchi and seaweed, so this, I bought a cod roe. Feels like the market is next to the old market was declining, but in the old market. Citing the suitcase back to main street, street underpasses, while. Also in the taxi so that it is safe. It is recommended so a safe place within some 20 minutes from Gimpo Airport. From Incheon International Airport to look in other places might be better.

  • It was big and there are many types of seafood. Even though it is wholesale but it is easy to buy small quantities. Most stalls don't have any English or Chinese words so foreigners may have a hard time buying. Restaurants are hidden, so it is best to ask the stall owner how to reach the nearest restaurant. There is entrance fee for eating purchases (from market) at restaurants.
  • It's a fish market. Many stalls but variety depends on what's in season and you may find quite a few stalls selling the same seafood. Buy what you like and being it upstairs to the several restaurants that will readily prepare typical Korean cuisine dishes with you "catch". Essentially as a seafood soup or grilled or steam or sashimi. Be mindful that most of the restaurants may not have much add-on ingredients, I bought oysters and wanted oyster omelette but they did not have eggs to prep my dish. The restaurant I went to charged 3,000 KRW for table setting for one person, 7,000 to steam a dish or have it grilled. Stir fry is 8,000, steamed fish is 10,000 and soup dish odds 10,000-20,000.
  • Walked through the wholesale area before reaching the "premium" building where you can buy seafood and have the restaurants cook it straight away for you. I liked the fresh seafood and the bargaining process, but didn't like how they just take your food to a restaurant of their choice for the cooking. We didn't really get a choice of how the seafood was to be cooked/served which bring steamed was ok for fresh seafood but when you order so much a little variety in serving style would have been nice
  • Bustling place! Smells a little fishy but definitely much cleaner & better than most fish markets. Fresh seafood at its best. Nice range of choice from restaurant rows on the upper level.
  • Interesting place to visit. There is an older market and a new market. The normal practice would be to purchase your seafood from the older market and look for a restaurant to prepare/cook them at a separate charge. Try to bargain for the seafood purchasing price and lookout for the restaurant cooking price.

Where to stay in Seoul

The Seoul metropolitan area has two districts especially appealing to backpackers--Jongno just northeast of the city, and Hongdae to the west. Both offer good shopping and dining, as well as easy transport links to the rest of the city. Mid-range options may prove difficult to find in peak season (July to August), unless you don't mind staying at a traditional hanok guesthouse, where loads of character make up for any lack of amenities. Finally, a range of top-end hotels with an impressive list of services and facilities lie scattered around the city.
