BIFF Square, Busan

3.7
#10 of 147 in Things to do in Busan
Originally known as a small hub of improvized cinemas during Japanese colonial rule, BIFF Square today represents the center of Korea's modern film industry. Renovated and transformed in 1996, the site quickly became a cultural tourist attraction, especially for movie lovers and directors. Experience the crowded first-run theaters, which only a small number of Asian and European cities can host to begin with. Besides focusing on films and entertainment, the district also contains an abundance of restaurants, leisure facilities, and shops, so you can purchase affordable food, fashionable clothing, and meet new people anywhere you turn.

  • Biff Square is really like the first hole in Seoul, many shopping malls, there are many authentic roadside snacks. On the ground also see the star director of the fingerprint model, really very special! A place worth going to

  • There are many seafood option here. Seafood lover? You have to try
  • There is a lady at the begining of the food area selling some of the best chicken sticks in korea
  • The hotteoks are delicious (had them from 2 different vendor stalls) and there are quite a few options for delicious food nearby.
  • Great night time eating. It is filled with super interesting characters and incredible food.
  • I like busan more than Seoul because of biff square. Please keep in mind that the cool led ceiling place is somewhere else in busan, this is just the commercial area. You can really feel the town here. No pushy sales ppl.

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.
