Nampo-dong ( 남포동 )

Nampo-dong Market would be the best place to start in Busan as there are loads of small food stalls, large brand chains, a big department store and really a bit of everything here. It is also very close to Jagalchi (자갈치), so its worth visiting both at the same time.

Mandu, Gimbab & tteok bok ki.
(The tteok bok ki was extrememly spicy haha however was delicious)

  1. Hi Mark,

    Would it be too much to ask, to draw / mark out, on a google map screenshot, the location of which part of Nampo-dong that’s worth visiting? I can’t seem to find Nampo-dong Market on google map. Thanks.

    1. These are probably the best areas to start in Nampo-dong.

      This Korea Tourism Site will be helpful as well.

      That should get you started. Remember, Jagalchi Fish Market is just across the road (literally a 2 minutes walk from Nampo-dong).

      I hope that is sufficient 🙂
