Busan

Walled by lavish mountains on one side and the breezy sea on the other, and with an urban sprawl all over the city, Busan emits an interesting aura of a "homely" city. The "summer capital" of Korea is where you'll find the country's largest beach, longest river and most beautiful natural landscapes. It is also host for the world famous Busan International Film Festival. With inviting smiles from its warm residents and pleasant weather all year long, it is not surprising that this second largest city in South Korea is a top holiday spot for locals and tourists alike.

Top 5 Must Do's

Haedong Yonggungsa Temple

Haedong Yonggungsa Temple

As far as Buddhist temples go, Haedong Yonggungsa Temple stands out from its contemporaries. Perched on a rocky coastline, the beautiful architecture is a rare find right by the seaside. The main deity here is the Buddhist Goddess of Mercy, who resides in the sea and it is believed that saying her name over and over again while you are here will result in good fortune.



Nurimaru APEC House

Nurimaru APEC House

Built for the APEC Conference in 2005, the building is truly an architecture delight and a symbol of Busan. The concept was inspired by the 'pavilion', a traditional Korean summer house and complementing the scenic atmosphere are stunning views of Haeundae Beach and the Gwangandaegyo Bridge from afar. The house is located in the picturesque Dongbaekseom Island.



Jagalchi Fish Market

Jagalchi Fish Market

Welcome to the largest seafood market in Korea - the local equivalent of Tokyo's famous Tsukiji Fish Market. Thousands of stalls with tonnes of fish that come and go every day, making it one of the most exciting places to be in Busan. Have your seafood cleaned and cooked on the spot, or have it prepared raw to be consumed as sashimi. Yums!



Haeundae Beach

Haeundae Beach

Korea's most famous beach is where the excitement is for some jet skiing, surfing and fun frolicking in the sun! The fun doesn't stop there! Get even closer to the rich marine kingdom in Korea's largest aquarium, located right by the beach itself, boasting an impressive 80-meter underwater tunnel and a larger-than-life simulator!



Busan Tower

Busan Tower

If you didn't get to catch Seoul's N Seoul Tower, the Busan Tower is a popular tourist attraction as well! Located in the pleasant Yongdusan Park, the 118-meter tall tower offers a spectacular panoramic view of the entire city. Seal your love with the padlock-adorned fences around the tower, or feed the resident pigeons with corn. You can take the hillside escalator up to the tower.
