7. Busan inside

Busan is the second largest city in Korea. Busan, previous spelling “Pusan”, is situated on the southeastern tip of the Korean peninsula. Port of Busan handles mountains of containers due to its deep harbor and gentle tides.

Visitors can enjoy the beautiful beaches with golden sands, and small-sized islets along the seashore. Also restaurants specialized in sea foods are known for good places to visit.

With a population of 3.8 million, Busan is developing as a city with marked international flavor and several successful events such as Busan Asian Games, PIFF(Pusan International Film Festival), Busan Int’l Motor Show, and ITU Telecom 2004, which is referred to as the World Cup of the IT industry, well demonstrate that Busan is capable of holding any major international events by itself.

 Busan, a bustling city of approximately 3.7 million residents, is located on the southeastern tip of the Korean Peninsula.

Busan’s stunning natural environment is a harmonious blend of mountains, rivers and the sea. Its geography includes a coastline that has both superb beaches and scenic cliffs in abundance, mountains which provide excellent hiking and extraordinary views, and hot springs scattered throughout the city.

Busan enjoys four distinct seasons and a temperate climate that never gets too hot or too cold.

Busan is becoming increasingly known and respected as an exhibition and convention destination. Following the successful hosting of major international events such as the ITU Telecom Asia 2004, 2005 APEC Leader's Meeting, and 2006 14th ILO Asian Regional Meeting, Busan is currently ranked as the 8th most popular convention city in Asia by the UIA (Union of International Association).

C. Sightseeing

 For any information on sightseeing of Korea, please visit Korea National Tourism Organization homepage http://english.visitkorea.or.kr/enu/index.kto.

 Depending on your available time we recommend you the following sites. Some of them are located close to the hotel and can thus be easily visited individually, whereas others are more distant and can be visited with a bus provided by travel agent.

 - Jagalchi Market (Fish Market)

This is the largest fish market in Korea and located right next to the harbour. Jagalchi is famous throughout the country for the peculiar Jagalchi women selling their fish and for its huge variety of fish and seafood offered. It has two major sections: one for fresh seafood (where you can sit down and try fresh raw fish right on the spot) and another one for dried seafood.

Time needed: 20 minutes by car from the hotel; 30-60 minutes for the visit

 - Gukje Market

Busan's largest market is close to the downtown area and was formed by merchants descended from refugees of the Korean War. The stands offer a wide variety of goods such as silk, linen, clothing, bags, glasses and curtains, as well as many imported items.

Time: 7 minutes by food from the Jagalchi market; 30-60 minutes for the visit

 - Yongdusan Park

Rising 49 meters above sea level in the middle of downtown, Yongdusan (Dragon Head Hill) forms a major landmark and offers a nice break from the concrete jungle of the city. From the Busan tower, which is situated in the middle of the park, one can enjoy a beautiful view all over Busan.

Time: 5 walking minutes from Gukje & Jagalchi; 30-45 minutes for the visit.

- Beomeosa

Beomeo Temple is located on the eastern slope of Geumjeon-san and is said to have been built in 678 A.D. by the Great Priest Uisang during the reign of King Munmu of the Silla Kingdom. It is one of the three largest temples in the southeastern part of Korea and one of the ten most famous ones of Korea’s Hwaeom Sect of Buddhism. It was destroyed during the Japanese Invasion in 1592 and reconstructed in 1602 but shortly after burnt again by an accidental fire. In 1613 it was rebuilt again.

Time: Around 40 minutes by car from the hotel; 1-2 hour(s) for the visit. 

- Yong Gung Sa

The only temple on the sea in Korea. You can see magnificent cliffs and grand spectacle with an overwhelming stone Buddha. There is a great drive course along the beach. Time: Around 40~50 minutes by car from the hotel;

- Taejongdae

Taejondae is a park of dense evergreen trees with beautiful recreational facilities, including seaside saltwater pool, snacks and souvenirs shops, and sightseeing boats to view the cliffs. At the entrance is a monument dedicated to the five neutral nations that contributed medical support during the Korean War(1950-1953).

With its white lighthouse overlooking the sea, Taejongdae is one of the most popular tourist attractions, with lots of people eating fresh raw fish, taking a boat, or just enjoying the nice view. 

- Mt. Geumjeong Fortress

Stretching 17km long and standing 1.5~5m high, this is the largest fortress in Korea. Magistrates Han Pae and Oh Han-won gave the fortress its present outlook.
