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.

With a deep water port right next to the modern Maritime Museum this was a nice introduction to mainland South Korea. We spent several hours in the city just walking and viewing. The city had quite a few outdoor equipment & clothing stores.The locals gave us a great musically send off.

Korea's gritty and energetic 2nd city, the port town of Busan is a little rough around the edges, but with amazing seafood (like hoe -- Korean sashimi, pronounced 'hwe'), a fascinating fish market (Jalgachi) and some excellent temples (Beomeo-sa in the mountains and Yonggung-sa on seaside cliffs), it's a place that can easily occupy a couple days. Head to Haeundae Beach during the day to chill out on the sand with the masses, then visit Gwangalli Beach at night for the bars and nightlife.

POLAR BEAR SWIMMING:

It's said there's no better way to awaken your senses than an icy dip. For some, the wacky tradition of submerging onself in freezing cold water is part of a normal wintertime practice (we're looking at you U.K., Finland, Belgium, Russia and China!). But the trend is spreading. Polar Bear clubs have become all the rage in countries worldwide as adventure seekers and alternative health afficianados take to the sea. In Busan, Korea, a Polar Bear swim competition in the cold water of the Korea Straight each January has become part of a chilly new tradition for welcoming in good health in the New Year.

Busan, the second biggest cities in the country is a great culinary destination. Their pork and rice stew 돼지국밥 is the best I've ever had. Of course, you can have some of the best seafood in the seafood market as well.

the sea, temples, mountains, some shopping and see sighting. I spend a week there which gave me plenty of time to really appreciate the Korean lifestyle and try local foods and drinks! It's a big city so plenty of stuff to try out but not as big as Seoul so it's a good start to discover South Korea!

A major port city of Korea, Busan actually feels very laid back perhaps due to its roots as a fishing village. There are several modern shopping malls just along side of more traditional shopping streets. When venturing out of the center district, there are beautiful beaches, temples, and natural hiking trails.
