Noryangjin Fisheries King Crab

The famous Noryangjin Fisheries Wholesale Market in Seoul is in a difficult predicament; both the old and new markets are located just side by side and this has resulted in a portion of the vendors moving over to the new building while the rest continue operating at the old market.

In an attempt to modernise the fishery industry to promote tourism growth, the new Noryangjin market has been built to accommodate more stalls in a cleaner environment.

If you are curious about the similarities and differences between the old and new Noryangjin markets, read our guide to find out more. READ ON
