Busan Hotels Hotels

Busan is the second largest city in South Korea, and its busy port means that it's a lively hub for business. The skyline is made up of modern, shiny skyscrapers, which contrast with the rolling mountains in the distance, and visitors can enjoy both the bustle of the city and the calm of the surrounding countryside. Packed with museums, historic sites, and a wide selection of restaurants, there's something for both business and leisure travellers to enjoy.

Things to see

Gwangan Grand Bridge is a major landmark in Busan, and is the second largest bridge in South Korea. This impressive suspension bridge spans 7,420 metres and connects the neighbourhoods of Haeundae and Suyeong, providing a shortcut across the vast Port Busan. The most popular time to get photographs of the bridge is at night when it's lit up, and there are ferry tours allowing you to get the best view of the spectacular light shows. BIFF Square is a hub of shopping and entertainment in the heart of Busan, and the streets are packed with locals and tourists until late at night. Lining the streets are many modern shopping centres and high rise buildings, while on street level you'll find a bustling market place that sells clothes, souvenirs, and much more. Under the illuminated archways you'll also find many traditional food stalls, with the sweet aromas of seafood and barbecue tempting you in. BIFF Square is also known as Korea's movie district, with bronzed handprints on the pavement, reminiscent of the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and a large number of cinemas that host international film festivals. Haeundae Beach is one of the most popular stretches of coast in Busan, and the golden sands get crowded with umbrellas and towels on the hottest days. It's worth turning up early and staking out a spot so you can enjoy a dip in the calm, cool ocean, and the beach's close proximity to the city means there are Busan hotels just a short stroll away.

It's a popular spot with budget travellers, with lots of traditional raw fish restaurants and cosy guesthouses in the older part of town.

Buses are also a popular way to get to the city, with comfortable, air-conditioned buses running from outside the terminal, and they usually take 40 to 50 minutes to get into Busan, depending on traffic.
