You can use nigiyaka for defining a busy situation, for example:
busy town = 賑やかな町 = nigiyakana machi
I think you can also use isogashiimachi
for isogashii, you can use it when you want to say that your are busy, for example:
私は忙しい人です = watashi ha isogashii hito desuI am a busy person
but I think you cant use nigiyaka for this
I think nigayaka can be used to explain a busy situation such as crowded place etc
but for isogashii, is used to explain that someone got so many things to do.

- shuheihan October 23, 2009 at 7:45amA better way of explaining it is that 賑やか means more like bustling or lively. When used to describe a person it means something like cheerful or lively.
忙しい means busy or preoccupied.
