Dynamic Busan and Korea Stay


Busan is second largest city of Korea, and it is located in its southern part. Busan is city of beaches and harbor. Here are few famous tourist "must visit" spots :

Shinsegae  is world largest  Departmental Store located near Haeundae Beach. You can shop, eat, and watch movies over there. It is located near Centum City Station
Lotte Departmental store is located next to Shinsegae. Both of them together makes a paradise for shopping 


BEXCO is an exhibition hall same as COEX. These days KOREA IT EXPO is being held there. 
Dongbaek Park (동백섬) is another must visit place in Korea. You can view glorious sea from here as well as APEC house- a famous spot where many dramas were recorded and view of Haeundae Beach

Haeundae Beach is most famous beach in Korea. It is located in city that makes it more special. Visit there in June-August

 
Beomeosa Temple is located on mountain and provides a serene and calm environment to relax. Take  city bus no, 90 for exit 5 of Beomeosa Station Line 1.

Second most beautiful and popular beach in Busan is Gwangali Beach (광안리). The view of Bridge from beach at night time is awesome~

last but not least Yongdusan Park hosts Busan Tower ( somewhat similar to Seoul Tower). Lover can lock their love here :) It is located in Nampo-dong area. close to Fish market and Nampo-dong fashion street. 


Aquatic Show at Lotte Store Nampo-dong is unique and must see!
