Busan 부산 - Day 1

Updated: Feb 13, 2019

After Seoul, another place that gains many attention from visitors around the world is Busan. Busan is South Korea's second largest city, a home to Korea’s largest beach, longest river and world’s biggest department store. Busan is popular with its seafood and beaches, so I recommend you to visit this city on Summer!

Okay, so let the journey begin!

3. Nampo-dong (남포동)

You can say Nampo-dong is Busan's Myeongdong shopping street. Nampo-dong is the most popular and must-visit shopping street in Busan selling a lot of branded products and food.

And surely of all the tourist sites in Korea, dog cafe is my favorite place. Apparently there is also one popular dog cafe located in Nampo-dong. When you are strolling around Nampo-dong, you're gonna see a dog cafe sign which begs for your visit and you definitely should grant the sign's wish ^^

4. Busan Tower (부산타워) - Yongdusan Park

If Seoul has Namsan Tower, Busan has Busan Tower. Busan Tower is the landmark of Busan and people said you have never been to Busan if you have not seen Busan Tower. After shopping and strolling around Nampo-dong, you will see a really long elevator which will guide you to Yongdusan Park and Busan Tower. They don't have cable car here but luckily you still can use this long elevator to go uphill reaching the tower. (P.s : the elevator only goes up)

Busan Tower is a symbol of Busan that stands proudly 69m above sea level at a height of 120m. The top of the tower is modeled after the baldaquin of Dabotap Pagoda in Bulguksa Temple, Gyeongju. Beloved by Busan citizens and tourists alike, the tower offers a stunning night view and plenty to see, such as the Statue of the Great Admiral Yi Sun-shin, the Bell of the Citizens, a flower clock and a bust of the Busan-based independent activist, Baeksan An Hee-je.
