This is a fun experience for the family especially for kids. My kids said this is a better experience than the aquarium, because you can see them, touch them and eat them later...LOL. We went there during summer, so not all the vendors were opened,...More

This place is a must do in Seoul if you like fish. No Korean required. Here’s how it works. Walk in. Walk around. See what looks good. Don’t stop at the first place that speaks English. Once you settle on something, start talking. It’s all...More

There are two separated parts in the Noryangjin Fish Market: the old marked and the new marked. The first one looks like the old traditional market while the second one is a very new and modern market where the tourist can roam around and discover...More

I have mixed feelings here. It was a nice place to visit, but it was empty when we visited 12 pm on Wednesday. It was eerie almost. We did buy 3-4 lb fish, but spent $35-$40. Then spent another $30-40 cooking it. So, I spent...More

Each stall might sell you different price. Don’t be too rush to decide, walk around and ask. One crab definitely more than a kg. Take note to ask for the cooking fee. The stall selling the crab and the people who cooking the... More

The market opens 24 hours, 365 days. No holiday, because the auction starts at 1 am, ends around 5 am. About half of the fishery circulated in Seoul comes from the auction.
