What people say

"Pack your bags and get ready to immerse yourself in the vibrant city of Busan! From hip cafes to stunning coastal trails, this city has everything you need to satisfy your wanderlust cravings. For starters, the hip cafe street in Busan is a must-visit for all caffeine junkies out there. Get your fix of artisanal coffee and trendy pastries while soaking in the city's urban vibes. But if you're looking for something more adventurous, why not hit the hiking trails? The rugged terrain of Busan is home to some of the most breathtaking views in the world. And let's not forget about the seafood. Fresh fish is a staple in Busan, and you can find it on almost every corner. Whether you're in the mood for sushi or sashimi, Busan has got you covered. And what better way to enjoy your seafood than by the beach? With beautiful beaches like Haeundae Beach, you can indulge in the salty sea air while devouring the catch of the day. For a truly unique experience, take a ride on the Haeundae Beach Train & Sky Capsule. This scenic ride offers panoramic views of the city and the ocean, and is the perfect way to relax after a day of hiking or beach bumming. But the hidden gems of Busan are what really set it apart from other cities. The Haedong Yonggungsa Temple is a serene escape from the bustling city & offers stunning views of the ocean from its cliffside perch. So if you're looking for an adventure that combines the best of urban & outdoor exploration, Busan is the perfect destination for you. 🎒 (Kinda) day-trip-friendly from Seoul, but I'd personally recommend you to spend at least 4-5 days here to fully experience the city"

For sightseeing, you have a range of activities just waiting for you like temples, cable cars, and more. FAQS Can I do a day trip to Busan? It is possible to do a day trip to Busan from Seoul but I honestly would not recommend it. The commute to Busan from Seoul and back would eat up most of your time and you won't get a lot of time to explore the city. How long should I stay in Busan? I recommend staying about 4 ro 5 days to fully experience the city. "
"Known for its stunning beaches and fresh seafood, this coastal city is a must-visit. It's one of my favorite places in South Korea and even though it's just another big metropole, it has a very very different vibe in comparison to Seoul. "
