BIFF, Jigalchi Fish Market and Taejongdae Park


After visiting many parks and memorials in the Nampo area of Busan, I made my way through the Gukje Market, BIFF Square and Jagalchi Market to meet up with Alex. We raced the sun and made it to Taejongdae Park before it got dark and ended our night there. Well, really we ended our night with takeout dumplings and a skype dance party with one of our other best friends from home, Amanda. And that was lovely. But pictures from that aren’t quite so lovely or impressive, so enjoy this in lieu of that.


There are many street vendors at Gukje Market
