As the second largest city in Korea, Busan is famous for both tourist and shopping attractions. Giant department stores (such as Shinsegae Centum City, the largest department store in the world) and numerous shopping streets offer a wide selection of merchandise, drawing local and international visitors year-round.
Busan is home to the Jagalchi Market, famous for its astounding variety of fresh seafood sold at extremely reasonable prices. Visitors can even have their purchases prepared right in front of them, ensuring the freshest meal or snack possible. The seafood market is full of the sights, smells, and sounds of fresh seafood caught in the waters right off the Busan Port. Various traditional markets such as the Gukje Market also treat guests to the boisterous, vibrant marketplace experience and the incomparable hospitality of the merchants and citizens of Busan.
