Photo of the Week: Noryangjin Fish Market, South Korea

Seoul, South Korea

Somewhere near the dark blue line of Noriangjin station is one of Seoul’s massive fish markets. This 66,000 square meter facility houses over 700 shops selling fresh and dried fish and squid from 15 fishing ports around Korea. It also includes numerous restaurants, an auction floor, and an adjacent agricultural section. It will open your eyes to an aspect of Korean culture that can only effectively be experienced through your nose hairs. ;) I made a video of our visit, which can be seen here! You can also find directions to this fish market here (#10) if you’re so inclined. :)
