There was once a time when I thought that lobsters, crabs, and shrimps were the only types of seafood that were ACTUALLY pretty delicious. Oh man, was I wrong.
Noryangjin is basically a heaven for seafood lovers out there. It has the biggest fish market in Korea. There is no sea besides the market, but all the seafood caught in the early morning comes to this very market. There are over 370 different types of underwater creatures that you can find and actually taste.
The Noryangjin Fish Market is divided into two different locations: the old and the new. They are located right next to each other, but the only difference is that one is old with less vendors and the other one is new and in a large building. The fish market is open 24/7 so you can come by anytime of the day to enjoy some fresh seafood.
The Noryangjin Fish Market Tour is one of the three Seoul food tours of Seoul Hunters. Our guide will take you on an adventure to an underwater heaven and explain most of the fish popular here in Korea. They will provide you with enough seafood information to make you a decent fish expert. After giving you a tour of the market, you will get the chance to pick your own fish and have the restaurants in the same building cook you a wonderful and never forgettable Korean seafood meal.
Now here’s how you get to this seafood heaven. I recommend going by subway or bus because the transportation in Korea is absolutely fantastic. The Noryangjin subway station is located in subway Line 1 and 9. If you’re taking Line 1 there, then get out from exit 1, and if you’re taking Line 9, then get out from exit 7. Walk for about 5 to 10 minutes (Exit 1: to the right / Exit 7: go straight) and there should be a tunnel to your right with the Noryangjin Fish Market sign. Keep going through the tunnel (don’t worry, it’s not that scary). Once you come out, voilà! You have arrived! All that’s left for you to do is go enjoy a building full of fresh Korean seafood.
