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.

Great tour. The Chinese and English guides in the car take care of everyone carefully. The introduction is very complete. It is recommended for free travelers. If you want to visit the attractions of East Busan, you can arrange a day to buy a tour, saving a lot of transportation time. Almost all the scenic spots I want to go to are here.

Had a wonderful time and experience during this tour. Jun is a great tour guide, very professional and friendly. He even brings his camera to help take great pictures for you. Well knowledge about the area and sights, you will get to learn a lot about the areas in Busan that you'll want to see them all. If I come back I'm definitely booking a day tour or any other tours with him. One of the highlights of my stay was this tour!!!

Very recommended! Running Man in Busan is very different from Seoul, South Korea. The facilities inside are more fun! Although the time is limited for one hour, I really have a lot of fun in one hour. It is in the building. You have to take the elevator up. The service staff can speak English and are very kind. I will come back if I have a chance!

The teacher can speak Chinese and English, and the materials have been prepared. Even a beginner in cooking will not find it too difficult. During the cooking process, the teacher will pay attention to the different progress of each group from time to time. In the end, everyone can eat homemade Korean cuisine happily and with a sense of accomplishment. This is the first time that we have participated in a cooking course abroad, and gained a lot of valuable local information and experience. Recommended for travelers who don’t want to just go shopping or watch flowers:)
Review for: Busan Tower Ticket

The tickets are bought on the spot and used directly on the spot, there are not many people, the surrounding environment is comfortable, and the venue is clean, which is very cost-effective. In addition to the beautiful night view, there are also some interactive projections, and the overall experience is very good.

We were experiencing a super bad air quality for Busan and the SeaLife Aquarium was the perfect refuge for us. Right at 10am we approached the counter, showed my phone and proceeded down the escalator to catch the staff feeding several of the tanks. It was like our own private feeding tour. The Aquarium was nearly empty, making it easy to be physically distant. We did wear our masks. And our temperatures were checked when we entered and we did have to write down our contact info (standard for Korea). Once inside the Aquarium, you can purchase tickets for the glass bottom boat. There are limited educational signs in English but overall very enjoyable experience, especially considering the poor air quality.
