Reviews of Busan

Bettina Zourli Seasoned Traveller

Busan is South Korea's principal seaside resort. Situated to the south of the country, it's got excellent beaches, numerous temples and culturally interesting sites.

My suggestion:
A two day trip from Seoul, the over populated South Korean capital, is enough.
My review

There are two main beaches at Busan, both as nice as each other. Being close to the town centre, they're great for a swim but the scenery's not the prettiest that you'll find in the region. Hitting the beach is the favourite pastime during a holiday in South Korea. 

This town is also well known for its commercial role, being a busy port. Even so, there are several spots where you'll get a stunning, panoramic view of the sea. 

On a cultural note, there are some superb temples as well as the village of Gamcheon, which sits on a hill and is home to little streets lined with colourful houses. 

It's a popular destination with tourists from other Asian countries, who come here for weekends to enjoy its great climate as well as shopping centres such as Lotte or its various markets.
