 1) Gamcheon Village (부산 감천문화마을)

Gamcheon Village is on my priority list. Gamcheon Village nestled into the side of a mountain that filled with colorful houses. It has become a tourist attraction due to a nice view of the colorful House from the peak. Don't panic if you lost at the residential area as you can refer to the maps or the shorter way is take a walk at 148 steps and walk up the hill as you will end up at starting point. The map is sold at ₩2,000 won but I prefer to refer map on the signboard as is free. Besides the colorful House, you can walk through 148 steps, take a break at Cafe, purchase souvenirs such as art postcard or taking a nice photo at a certain spot.

Jagalchi Market famous with fresh fish and seafood. Formed in late 19th century, Jagalchi Market has become tourist a must visit place. Jagalchi Market has 2 different section( outdoor & Indoor). Basically I will prefer indoor. If you looking for nice seafood, you can explore 1st and 2nd floor.

1st Floor - Live fish market
2nd floor - Raw Fish Restaurants / Dried Sea Products Stores

Basically the prices around 15,000 to 100,000 won and it depend what you want to order. Drop by to stall 40 and plan to take set dishes for 2. One set is 30,000 won and inclusive of side dishes. Portion queit generous a come with complimentary ice water.

Serve with live octopus and being a Malaysian, we usually prefer cook food. 😂😂. Both of us stay at the live octopus for half hour and finally decide to dip into hot pot. Challenge fail 🤣🤣
