부산 (Busan) is the second largest city in Korea after Seoul. It’s also a city that a lot of tourists choose to visit. As a coastal city, it’s full of charm and character.
Here are 7 places that we recommend you to visit in Busan!
It’s where you can enjoy the magnificent view of Gwangan Bridge, aka Diamond Bridge, the second longest bridge in Korea. Minrak Subyeon Park (민락수변공원) is located right next to the beach, where it’s the best place to watch the night view of the bridge.
Being one of the most famous beaches in Korea, it has a beautiful, enormous white sand seashore. All the fun things happen here, especially during summertime. It’s also where the annual Busan International Film Festival is held.
A beach that’s loved by surfers! The beach has shallow waters and high waves, making it an ideal spot to surf. You can have surfing lessons here from beginner to advanced level. It’s also comparably smaller and less crowded than Haeundae or Gwanalli Beach.
Walking between the alleys, you can find interesting murals and photo spots. Started when the Korean War refugees in the 1950s built houses, the village is a successful example of urban regeneration projects.
It’s located at the edge of the land where the mountain meets the sea. The location and scenery are so unique. Unlike other temples that are usually located in the mountains, it faces the East Sea.
It’s a park, located in Jung-gu, that has a Busan Tower at the top. A statue of Yi Sun-shin stands tall below the Busan Tower. What about enjoying Busan at a glance at the top of Busan Tower?
When the Korean War broke out, all the refugees, U.S. military aid packages, and illegal imports flowed into Busan. This market became a place where one can get anything, usually composed of diverted products. Although it no longer sells illegal products, it has almost anything you need!
