It’s not something I do in the Philippines. After all, just how clean and interesting do they get around here? But when I’m overseas, I love visiting fish markets. I like seafood and it’s the best place to satisfy my craving for the freshest catch. And it’s also a great place to capture local color.
The Jagalchi Market in Busan, Korea’s largest, is a must-go for seafood lovers and photography enthusiasts. It’s huge, clean, colorful, and strange. Where else can you find penis fish? Octopus that’s eaten live?
My friends and I bought oysters, abalone, live octopus, and some other fish that don’t swim in our tropical waters. Our bill was half of what it’d cost us at Dampa in Pasay.
