What We Love About Busan

The seaside town of Busan is known for its beaches, mountains, and the largest fish market in South Korea! With colorful houses perched on a hill, the town is affectionately dubbed as the Santorini of South Korea. The Gamcheon Culture Village, in particular, is decorated with various murals and art pieces crafted by the residents themselves. Sample the freshest raw fish available at the Jagalchi Market, take a stroll along the famous Haeundae Beach in the heart of Busan, and end your day along the translucent paths of the Oryukdo Skywalk to catch a breathtaking sunset view.
