    The place is a must visit location. 14 countries assisted South Korea during the Korean war and many soldiers of these countries were martyred. This is the only UN cemetery.  more »

    Calm atmosphere away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Free admission. If it comes with the Red Busan city tour bus, you first must go to the Park to get to the main entrance.

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.
