Beautiful seaside town with beachfront hotels, fun shopping streets and the huge Lotte department store. It's got a bit of the city and a bit of the sand, making it a nice destination for those with many likes. You probably know it from the many movies filmed here, including, most recently, Black Panther.

I just love this city. I don’t trafficking so I choose Busan. Local people are very friendly. Foods are not too expensive and tasty. Freshly air and wonderful attractions are great. I can’t explain all of this feeling. You will have known that if you are coming here.

Busan is a fresh and very modern city on the southern tip of South Korea. It is my favorite spot in all of Korea, it offers great food, nightlife, outdoors, and warm sandy beaches.
