Celebrity Millennium, A day in Busan South Korea
August 13, 2017
We arrived to Busan with Celebrity Millennium cruise ship. The ship docks about 3 miles southeast of the city. We got off the ship and changed money in a small booth outside the ship. From there we took a free shuttle to the city center. The shuttle stopped at Nampodong on the main street in Gudeok Ro near the Jagalachi Fish Market and PIFF Square, near the entrance to Nampodong Metro Station.
We crossed the street and entered the Jagalachi Fish Market. The market is located in a main building, but there are also a lot of booths around it. The market is very clean and contains a large variety of fish and seafood. The sellers in the market are constantly busy cleaning and preparing the fish. You can buy fish and seafood in the market and go up to the second floor to the restaurants and ask to be prepared. We were not hungry, so we continue walking.
We returned to the main road , crossed to the other side and wandered among the alleys. On gwangjang-ro we saw a long queue for buying 'Hotteok'. This is a local vegetarian fried dish like a pancake, filled with sunflower and pumpkin seeds. It was delicious.
We finished are day in Busan by walking to Lotte department store. It is located at Nampodong Station.
At the roof of the mall there is a beautiful Sky park on the 11th floor, and an Observation deck on the 12th floor with a magnificent view of Busan and the Bay.
