Places in South Korea
Bursting with mountains, beaches, hot springs and seafood, South Korea’s second-largest city is a rollicking port town with tons to offer. From casual tent bars and chic designer cafes to fish markets teeming with every species imaginable, Busan has something for all tastes on land or sea.
Busan & Gyeongsangnam-do
The best sites in Korea either awe with beauty or deepen our understanding of the culture. Busan and Gyeongsangnam-do (부산과경상남도) do both. Underrated Busan’s easily accessible mountains and beaches, as well as its colourful seafood and drinking scene make it very easy to love.
