    This is a pretty, sandy beach with inviting sand and sea and a backdrop of skyscrapers and mountains.

    We were there until April, so out of season but it was still quite busy.

    There are lots of restaurants and convenience stores on the walkway behind the beach and also an aquarium.

    Busan is as big as Seoul.
    And it's a very attractive city.
    There is something special that you can only feel in Busan.
    If you go to Busan, please visit Gamcheon Culture Village.
    It is a place with warmth and beauty that cannot be felt in other cities.
    I went with my family.

    So, Transportation was the most important thing because both mother and child went together.
    Taxi is good, but what is more comfortable than taxi is MOVV.
    Taxis in Busan can feel a little dangerous.
    Taxi drivers' driving is rough.
    Children can feel dizzy.

    The driver of MOVV we used was different. It was safe and peaceful.
    We were able to go everywhere we wanted to go, and it was even better because there was no time limit,

    If you go to Busan, I hope you go to Gamcheon Culture Village.

    This is a nice sandy beach which offers great views of the Busan suspension bridge.

    The area is very clean and well kept and there is a wide array of eateries - licensed and unlicensed - behind the beach.

    It was a great temple with museum facilities. I recommend anyone who come to busan to visit this place. It exhibits the richness of Bhuddist culture in busan

    This temple is one of the few on the beach, where the scenery of the sea and the buildings go well together. It is a very crowded place, and there are well-organized parking lots and trails. It is well worth visiting, and many people are making wishes for sightseeing. It is also famous for its sunrise spot.

    We did not visit the UN Memorial Cemetery in our last visit to Busan, but did so in this time round. The UN Memorial Cemetery in Korea honours UN soldiers from 16 countries and UN aids from 5 countries that were killed in battle during the Korean War from 1950-1953, and is the only memorial cemetery in the world dedicated to UN soldiers.

    Do watch the video at the Memorial Service Hall. The 12-minute documentary is informative and is available in English as well. As you enter the cemetery grounds, there is a poignant collage of the fallen soldiers. In the Symbolic Area, the National flags of the 22 Sending States, Republic of Korea and a UN flag fly everyday above the interred from the 11 nations. The names of 40,896 fallen UN forces are engraved on the Wall of Remembrance.

    If you are interested in the Korean War, this together with the War Memorial of Korea (in Seoul), are places you mush visit if you are in Busan and Seoul.

    This is a very impressive white suspension bridge which dominates the skyline from a number of vantage poutine in Busan.

    This is an interesting, if smelly, experience.

    The indoor fish market is huge and teeming with sea life, including huge crabs, octopus and more. As you would expect, the smell is pungent, but it is still worth a visit.

    You can purchase fresh fish and take it upstairs to be cooked for you.

    The outside area offers great views of the fishing shops and skyscrapers beyond.

    The market is free to enter. Worth a visit.

    We visited BIFF Square twice in December 2023, once during a weekday night and once on a weekend night. During the weekday night, the street stalls were more muted and some were not opened, as there was much less a crowd.

    During the weekend, BIFF Square is packed so much so that there were traffic controllers manning the streets, ushering pedestrians off the roads when cars were approaching. There were many shopping options and many street stalls selling local snacks. We tried quite a few of these stalls and the food were generally nice. Definitely worth a visit.

    This was also part of our tour package through our cruise line. It's a nice easy walk, some of it uphill, through a nice park with plenty of trees to provide shade on a warm day. There is the APEC house halfway round, which we also visited on the tour. Some great views of the city and beach. Allow around an hour or so for a nice walk.

    One of the larger markets, with cooked and fresh food, produce and household items in different sections/buildings.

    Fascinating if you like markets of this nature as there is always something new to explore.

    To get to Gukje, if you come via the metro, you can walk through BIFF Square and the food stalls there. Jagalchi fish market is also in the vicinity. Modern shops and cafes line the several streets before Gukje, providing an interesting contrast to the traditional market.

    Not so touristy, with many locals doing their regular weekly shopping and the odd market-loving visitor walking through.
