It took us 1 hr by bus to reach Gijang Market. Interesting place as there were different types of seafood sold at the market. Some which we have never seen before.

We had two snow crabs + side dish + fried rice , two persons only 760000 won. Their crabs looks fresher than the other stores plus inside is nicely presented. They were invited by... More

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 35,000KRW - 50,000KRW per kilo. The first few stalls might start with 45,000KRW per kilo,... More

If you like Crabs and lobsters, you must visit the Gijang market. Our party of 5 shared a 5.4kg King Crab for 250,000won.....Travellers needs to do some bargaining with seafood stalls...they originally wanted 282,000won...but we offer them 250,000 which they said no...so we moved on...but immediately, they said ok....(I wonder whether I should have offered lower). When you go inside... More

Came here bec other reviews say the price is much cheaper than in Nampo or Semyeong. Quite many restaurants and shops selling snow crab. Took bus 181 near Haundae metro station to Lotte department store (40 min), and then 181 in the same direction to Gijang market (30 min). Need to ask someone in the bus to tell us when... More

Took a bus to this market for dinner after shopping at Lotte Outlet Mall. Wide choices of seafood, especially king crab and snow crabs. They quoted the price and added additional seafood like scallops for free. Had lobster as well. Very nice and reasonably priced. The fried rice with crab roe after finishing out crabs was delicious. Strongly recommend this... More

We are extremely happy to have made it to Gijang Market where I would strongly encourage everyone to come by this market if you really want to have the best huge size King crab and Snow Crab. We didn't intend to eat but with the abundant of these crabs, we were tempted to try them. It is of no regret... More

Gijang traditional market is not only well known among the people from local area, but also all around all Busan metropolitan polulation... I personally recommend fresh seafood collected by local fishermen. King crab is polular but I don't find anything special compare to those in other areas....
