BUSAN : JAGALCHI MARKET

11th October 2014, Saturday

After my hiking trail at Gamcheun Culture Village, I continue my journey to explore Busan's famous market called Jagalchi Fish Market. 

How to go to Jagalchi Fish Market?

-Take subway Line 1 (orange colour line)
- You can stop at Jagalchi Station then take exit 10 about 10 minutes walking

There are many other attractions nearby area such as :

* Gukje Market
* BIFF Square
* Taejongdae Park
* Yongduan Park
* Songdo Beach

Just continue walking and you will find these places and you will not lose your way since there are big tourist map nearby. You can use it as reference or can buy map which will cost you around KRW2,000/-. IMA travel using Busan subway map.

Why I chose to go to Jagalchi Market after Gamcheon Culture Village visit?
Jagalchi is just one station from Toseong -Dong. Very convenient!

Jagalchi market is a huge fish market with lots of fresh seafood waiting to be executed live!!!! isk isk isk ...poor creatures! The Jagalchi market is in the big building. Where they sell live creature downstairs and upstairs are sort of restaurant.

The one IMA shown below...is the open area one around Jagalchi too.

From dried to wet...
IMA almost go crazy to see lots of banchan here....huhuhuh wanna buy but afraid cannot finish.

Huge flowery and hairy crabs live.
Dare not order crab because it may eaten up to IMA budget funds. IMA need more for Jeju trip next.
Dried hairtail fish and frozen pollack are everywhere.
IMA got a chance to try frozen pollack spicy soup which IMA will reveal more on food section which come to the end of journey diary!
Long way to go since there are many places visited in 10 days travel.

OK...before we go see more poor sea creatures...


IMA eat first. This is fish cake stall and very hot selling too.
Not bad to eat it hot!

IMA seen eel skinned live merciless...still moving ok...struggling for life!!!!
See those in red on top right????
That was skinned eel.
There are video IMA took but unable to upload here. Trying to find away to do it soon. Too busy now. In that video that seller skinned the eel and then just throw to the table. That skinned eel still moving from pain and....it so geliiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!!!!!!

There many seller selling...oh well...in Malaysia we call it 'ikan goreng' but there the way they fried is like pan fried. The whole street was selling practically same item. Sort of 'Ikan Bakar' street in Malaysia.


'Siput babi' anyone??????
Remember if you find 'siput babi' in your garden don't throw away...put in the pot then make curry or stew you can eat them....if you can! tell me the taste please!!!!!! hahahahaha

You see the bottom left???
That one is indoor Jagalchi Market.
The right bottom is where the fisherman sell their catch to people.
All fresh from sea!


That grandfather in white uniform is selling ice cream...interesting he wear sort of ancient traditional costume.
Nice view too!


OK! I am done with all live creature execution before my eyes!!! isk isk isk isk

Next will be....BIFF Square shopping street!!!

BUSAN : GAMCHEON CULTURE VILLAGE aka MACHU PICHU OF KOREA

11th October 2014, Saturday

Woke up early in the morning to start my journey to Gamcheon Culture Village. I started my journey from Sasang Station , purple line, I easily can go to green line 2 for interchange to orange line 1. 

How to go to Gamcheon Culture Village?

- Take subway line 1 (orange colour) and stop at Toseong-dong.
- Take exit 6
-You will come to intersection don't worry, just walk and then turn right at the corner then walk straight until you see Cancer Hospital on your right.
- There are bus stop right in front of the hospital.
- Take either bus 2 or 2-2
- This bus will take you to Gamcheon Culture Village at the top of the hill
Don't worry about where to stop because so many people will stop there too and they are just tourist like you.

What is Gamcheon Culture Village?

Gamcheon Culture Village are well known as Santorini of Korea and also Korea's Machu Pichu. To me this place is very attractive and beautiful. This place is originally a sanctuary for Korean War refugees in early 50s. The refugees then stayed and settled in this neighborhood of Busan. The residents then grows to more 4,000 residents and around 800 houses in the area. Tourist can enjoy beautiful art and mural in this village too. Not too forget the fabulous atmosphere and view while walking around this village.

What to expect when you visit to Gamcheon Culture Village?

1. Buy a map cost you KW2,000 and you just walk around collecting stamps at places shown in the map.

* Photo gallery
* Constellation
* Haneul Maru
* Book Cafe
* The House of Peace
* The House of Light
* Art Shop
* Community Center
* Lil Museum

Once complete this course you can redeem your free postcard. Even if you don't complete the tour route is so much fun! IMA don't complete all the stamp and you will know why if you read further.

2. There are a lot of stairs and climbing up steep road and going down steep road. There are bumpy road and narrow path too. High heel is big NO or you suffer! So please wear comfortable shoes. IMA wore sport shoes...so no big deal! Seriously need lots of stamina visiting this place.

3. Visiting time end at 6pm. So please start your journey early as possible. 

4. You will expect to compete taking photos with stream of tourist and they can be local or foreign.

5. Please be quiet and polite when you visiting other people house. The residents who still live there need to be respected. Its their homeland for goodness sake!

6. Lastly, start walking and enjoy the view. Many beautiful photos can be snap for your memories!


My early breakfast before all the walking!
I bought this delimanjoo a lot as my snacking in Busan. huhuhuhuh IMA gain weight despite too many walking path!
YUMMY!


IMA reached at Toseong Station , Exit 6 then got confused where to walk to take the bus. IMA asked a group of Ajussi by pointing at the map. Then Ajussi replied  enthusiastically in Korean and IMA interpret it as  .....

" We are also going there. We are waiting for another friend to arrive and later we walk together to the bus stop "

hehehehehe watching Korean Drama not bad after all. It improve my Korean language listening skills.kekekekeke

Yeah! IMA literally follow group of hiking Ajussi to bus stop and there many other tourist waiting for the same bus. YEAYYYYYY!!!!! I am not lost!


Can't help it to buy this Hotteok! Delicious weiiiiiiii....mochi like  fried dough with brown sugar then that Ajumma use scissor to cut the fried dough and insert in various grains like pumpkin seed , sunflower seed and others.I totally love this one!


After eat the Hotteok...IMA feel thirsty then tried this Korean Sweet Rice Drink called Sikhye. Whoaaaaaa!!!!!!


IMA don't take good picture.

Ah! so lazy to climb back up!

FIRST IMPRESSION ON BUSAN

I flew out by AirAsia X on 10th Oct 2014 early morning flight and reached Gimhae International Airport, Busan morning too. Since it was a long journey, I booked myself a flatbed seat. I could say it was a good choice and the journey was very comfortable. The price also very reasonable. My only complaint the person sat next to me was snoring away loudly throughout the journey. huhuhuhuh...lucky the engine noise cover it a lil bit. So bad hor...that snoring ajussi?


My hotel was located at Sasang which is only 3 station away from Airport. So no problem at all. Wait a minute...I have problem...I reached early morning and check in time to hotel at 3pm. WTH!!!! No early check in. So no choice to leave my luggage at hotel and wondering around Sasang area. 

Sasang is consider a small town. My hotel located near Seubo  Intercity Bus Terminal and since Sasang subway is the interchange station so it is easy for me to commute to subway line 2 or even to line 1. So damn convenient!!!!

But hey....first day I need to kill time before my check in hour. So I just wondering around! 

Since it was early in the morning...everything was layback!!!
People around was clearing throat grossly...WTH!
Am I in China???? So confuse for a second.
People were talking in rough manner and seems unfriendly at all.
The street is dirty and the rotten gingko nut falling from tree smells like shit!
Smells of pee from the wall on the street.
The saliva from the spit was all over the street.....

I keep consoling myself...it is too early to judge.
At least I see the different side of Busan.

They are all human and all human live the same way....bad good rude polite...we are all human and no angel!

Here comes the life creature ready for execution for human consume. WTH!


The famous banana milk when you visit korea....I had my breakfast at convenient store!

 Walked around and found this market.
Ajuma and Ajussi busy with their selling items.
Many things amuse me.....

End up trying those tteuk. Damn delicious!
It was fresh and tasty.
Nothing like the one I tasted at Hyundai Mall in Seoul.
I thought I ban tteuk from my book when I tasted it from Hyundai Mall and this one totally traditional and delicious!


Walked into this small lil bakery and bought myself some doughnut and bread. Damn shiok too because their dough is like mochi texture. 

Then tired exploring the market and walking down every alley....I found a park in front of hospital and enjoy korean multi color corn and melon ice cream. It was windy and Thank God! my waiting is worth it!
At least my hotel room is comfortable with the price I paid.

It was a free and easy trip so my exploration is like a surprise to me.

My journey continue in my next post....
