Busan Tours, Vacation Packages & Travel Experiences
Busan is the second largest metropolis after Seoul on Korea vacations. Located on the southeastern tip of the Korean Peninsula, Busan is the largest port city in South Korea and the world’s fifth busiest sea port by cargo tonnage, given its close proximity to Japan.
Busan was designated as a trading port with Japan in the beginning of the 15th century, and continued as Japan’s major trading hub when Korea got invaded by Japan in the late 16th century.
During the Korean War (1950-1953), Busan was one of the very few cities not invaded by North Korea, and therefore became a refugee camp site and also temporarily served as Korea’s capital. The U.N. Cemetery serves as final resting place of U.N. soldiers killed in the war.
Situated between mountains and seas, Busan offers plenty of sightseeing opportunities on South Korea tours starting with gorgeous views from Busan Tower, in Yongdusan Park, The Jagalchi Fish Market, the largest fish market in South Korea, and Geumgang Park, a massive mountaintop fortress featuring beautiful cherry blossoms in the spring.
Busan features many temples, fortresses and historical sites, as well as museums and art festivals.
Busan is best known for its beaches, hot springs, and reserves. A fairly more laid back city than Seoul, Busan also plays host to various events throughout the year and is an ideal place on Korea tours to visit and experience a relaxed atmosphere within a huge metropolis.
