Flea Markets · Beaches · Sacred & Religious Sites
The country's second city, Busan has often been referred to as South Korea's summer capital. A wealth of beaches and all the trappings of a seaside economy have stoked this view of Busan tourism, with the peaks and valleys of the mountainous surroundings offering cooler areas of retreat to complement the coast. A number of temples provide the main areas of historical intrigue, as well as a number of sites related to the city's role during the Korean War. In the build up to your vacation in Busan, plan trip itinerary minutiae using the visitor reviews, staff write-ups, and custom search fields on our South Korea attractions site.

Where to stay in Busan

Established as a domestic tourist destination for a long while now, you'll find a good set of accommodations in Busan, a city becoming more and more equipped to cope with its burgeoning international reputation. Around Seomyeon station and slightly further to the northeast lie some of the most established options, with an abundance of hotels, hostels, and guesthouses in this highly commercial district. Head to the Haeundae beach district for a range of beachfront options, and more budget-friendly guesthouses in the side streets that lead away from the beach.
