The port town of South Korea is a charming mix of metropolitan and nature, making it a seaside city reminiscent of San Francisco.
What To Do
Nature lovers must visit Taejongdae Park which is an hour away from the city. Take the Danubi Train that will pass by 5 major destinations in the park. The cliffside scenery at the Yeongdo Lighthouse will take your breath away.
A village steeped with history and art is Gamcheon Cultural Village with its tiered layout and colourful houses. Follow the painted fishes on the house walls to find your way and take the time to reach the old hot spring building (no hot springs though) to get the best panoramic view of the village.
How To Get Around
Air carriers like AirAsia X and Korean Air have flights that land in Gimhae International Airport. There are also frequent flights from Seoul that run every hour and a half. The best way to get around Busan is by subway where a one-day pass will cost 4,500 won per person.
