Tour Highlights

Busan is Korea’s largest port city, filled with endless excitement and pleasant surprises. Every year, tens of thousands of visitors from all over the country and around the world flock to Haeundae, Songdo and Gwangalli Beaches to relax or to attend festivals. The city annually hosts the International Fireworks Festival and the Busan International Film Festival, while regularly holding various events at Centrum City, the world’s largest department store. Other must-see tourist sites include Taejongdae Resort overlooking the sea, Yongdusan Park, Yonggungsa Temple on a cliff, and the Jagalchi Market.

Yongdusan, in downtown Busan, is one of the 3 well-known mountains in Busan. The name Yongdu came from its shape, which is similar to a dragon's head and people believed it had a spirit to defeat enemies who came over the sea.
During the Korean war, people built houses on top of it, but 2 huge fires took them all away making it a bald mountain. Since then, fierce efforts to plant trees have taken effect creating a very beautiful park. It is a place with beautiful scenery. The night landscape from Busan tower is especially magnificent.

Gamcheon Culture Village which is called the San Torini of Korea is made up of narrow alleys like small veins on the sloping hillside. It was the village made by Taegeuk believers, which is a newly risen religion, after the Korean War and it was still called ‘Taegeuk village.' The village sought to be an ideal enclave in a unique terraced-style architecture. The structure has remained as it was; just the colors were changed, but it is a poor hillside village where financially deprived people stay and live nowadays and most of the Taegeuk believers have left.
You will experience the humble lives of those who are so connected that you will see piles of ashes or dried sneakers on the rooftops of homes during your walk down the alley of the village. Also you will find out that every path is connected with each other, like in the scene in an old TV show that is showcasing the joys, sorrows, and love they share in this small, tough village.

The Jagalchi Market (자갈치시장) is Korea's largest seafood market. After the Korean War, the market solidified itself as a fish market. Most of the people who sell fish are women, so the women who sell here are called 'Jagalchi Ajumma,' 'ajumma,' meaning middle-aged or married women.
This market represents Busan and is famous throughout the country. If you visit this place you can eat fresh raw fish right at the market. Even today you can see women selling mackerel, sea squirts (ascidians), and whale meat on wooden boxes along the road.

Following the Korean war, refugees who had fled to Busan set up stalls in order to make a living, and this was the beginning of the “Gukje Market.” The Gukje market is one of Korea's largest markets; each alleyway is crowed with stalls, and it connects to the other small markets. The market stocks such a wide variety of goods, that you can find almost everything you need right here. Great buys at the Gukje market include traditional Korean tableware and bedding sets, folk craft-work and more.

Haedong Yonggungsa Temple is situated on the coast of the north-eastern portion of Busan. Most temples in Korea are located in the mountains. Haedong Yonggungsa Temple was first built in 1376 by the great Buddhist teacher known as Naong, during the Goryeo Dynasty. Haesu Gwaneum Daebul (Seawater Great Goddess Buddha), Daeungjeon Main Sanctuary, Yongwangdang Shrine, Gulbeop Buddhist Sanctum (enclosed in a cave), and a three-story pagoda with four lions can all be seen looking out over the ocean.
The main sanctuary of the temple was reconstructed in 1970 with careful attention paid to the colors that were traditionally used in such structures. On the right-hand side, inside the cave, is a uniquely designed Buddhist sanctum, while situated just in front of the main sanctuary is a three-story pagoda with four lions. The four lions symbolize joy, anger, sadness, and happiness. Other special sites at the temple are the 108 stairs and stone lanterns lining the rocky landscape. After going down the 108 steps, one will be delighted with the beauty of the temple. Midway down the 108 steps one can stop and enjoy the calming sounds of the waves, and view the majestic sunrise.

Haeundae Beach (해운대해수욕장) is probably the most famous beach in the country. "Haeundae" was so named by scholar Choi Chi-Won (857-?) of the Silla Kingdom (BC 57-AD 935). When he was walking past Dongbaekdo Island, he was fascinated by it and left the carved words "Hae Un Dae" on a stone wall on the island. Haeundae is 1.5 km long, 30-50m wide, and spans an area of 58,400㎡. The white sand is rough and easily sticks to your skin. You can also see streams and shells that have been naturally eroded by the wind over time. Haeundae Beach is also famous for the various cultural events and festivals held throughout the year. At Haeundae Beach is a Folk Square where you can enjoy traditional games such as neoldduigi (seesaw jumping), Korean wrestling, tuho (arrow throwing), tug-of-war, and yutnori.

You can see Dongbaekseom Island (island of camellias) behind Chosun Beach Hotel, which is located on the right side of the end of Haeundae beach. This island is connected by eons of sedimentation by land but it is still called an island. Many poets such as Chiwon Choi visited this island to appreciate the scenery of forest and ocean and sang their works to the descendants.
A walkway was made around the island for tourists and also the historic site of Chiwon Choi, a mermaid sculpture, and Nurimaru APEC House are located together, and the scenery of Busan on Dongbaekseom Island is impressive. You can see the coastline of the Mipo port side, Dalmaji hill, Gwangandaegyo Bridge, and Oryukdo Island, which symbolizes Busan. It is still filled with camellias, which bloom with red petals, and drop their heads from winter to spring like the name it has been called by for so long.

The name Nurimaru APEC House was created by combining the Korean words nuri (“world”) and maru (“summit”), and “APEC House,” which refers to an APEC conference hall. Collectively, it means “a house where the world summits gather together for an APEC meeting.”
Located on Dongbaekseom Island, which is noted for its beautiful, natural landscape, accented by dense camellia and pine trees, Nurimaru APEC House has been used as a memorial hall and a prestigious international conference hall since the APEC summit meeting. The terrace, which has a Korean wooden floor concept, towers over Oryukdo Island, Gwangan Bridge and Dallmaji Hill. Located near Haeundae Beach, it not only offers a spectacular view of the beach, but also has the appearance of a reputable international conference hall featuring both modern and natural beauty.

The UN Memorial Cemetery in Korea honors UN soldiers from 16 countries that were killed in battle during the Korean War from 1950-1953. This serene park spreads across a grassy plain area of 135,000 m2. Some of the sites and memorials include: Memorial Service Hall, Memorabilia Hall, 2 Turkish Monuments, Greek Monument, Australian Monument, British Common Wealth Monument and 2 ponds. The Memorial Service Hall and the Memorabilia Hall were constructed in 1964 and 1968 respectively. The citizens of Busan dedicated the Main Gate in 1966. There are many annual events held here, some of the key events include: April’s Tributary Ceremony of the Veterans of the Korean War, May's American Memorial Day, June's Korean Memorial Day, and October's UN Ceremony Day.

  • Gukje Market

    The thriving atmosphere of the International Market is very similar to that of the Namdaemun Market in Seoul. However, unlike other traditional markets, stores at the Busan International Market sell all kinds of merchandise, including food and industrial goods. Refugees from all parts of the country drifted to the site of the Busan International Market right after the liberation and during the Korean War. They made their living by trading goods for daily use.

  • Yonggung Temple

    The motto of Haedong Yonggung Temple is "At least one of your wishes will be answered here through your heartful prayers." The sea has been with human-being in history from long time ago. It was very calm sometimes while furious sometimes. The Haedong Yonggungsa is situated near the sea unlike other temples located in mountains' therefore it"s quite reasonable to call this temple an aquatic Buddhist sanctum.
