6 Things to Do in Busan

Gwangalli Beach

Located at Gwangan 2 dong, Suyeong-gu Busan, west of Haeundae Beach. If you’re into live music, clubs, bars, modern restaurants, and beautiful night beaches, Gwangalli Beach is a 40-minute train ride from Busan. It has a lovely view of the bridge, skyscrapers, and many food outlets along the street. The beautiful beach overlooks the lit-up bridge at night and provides relief from the hectic city life. 

Busan's Citizens Park

A Former Imperial Japanese Army base and United States Army camp, located in the Busanjin District of the city of Busan, South Korea. This community park has a nice landscaping layout consisting of trees, ponds, fountains, sculptures, lanterns, etc. A beautiful garden filled with flowers and wild birds, such as ducks, can be seen by the pond. It’s a great place for walking, relaxing, and people-watching. 

Bujeon Market

One of the largest markets in Busan, with a variety of seafood, fruits, dried food, and vegetables, along with houseware items and snacks. It is a traditional market that offers great bargains and is not too expensive. Bujeon market is within walking distance from Seomyeon Underground Station, so it is worth a look. Be sure to prepare cash as a form of payment. There are no maps available, so it may be confusing to navigate since there are no English signs. However, it is strongly recommended to visit and people are generally friendly and helpful here. 

National Maritime Museum

The third largest museum in South Korea and inaugurated on July 9, 2012. You can ride bus 66 from around the Nampo station to get here. There is a lot to see and a few things for young children, such as the library, aquarium, and children’s museum. The building has impressive architecture with three floors of exhibition. 

Trick Eye Museum, Busan

Has a smart concept of using the smartphone app to create illusion photography. They give you instructions to download the app so that you can see a wonderful trick eye in the background. It can be enjoyed by both adults and children. This is a great place for imagination and creativity as you pose and take pictures. 

Oryukdo Skywalk

All of the tourists focus on the skywalk, but the place has so much to offer. The park is located in the southeastern part of Busan in the Nam-gu district. The entire glass bridge is shaped like a horse-shoe and hangs above a 35-40m cliff. Footwear has to be covered with a shoe cover provided at the entrance of the bridge to avoid scratches. Get around and explore underneath; it is the best place to explore the beautiful coastal scenery. Although the skywalk is of short distance, it is good to take some nice pictures of the sea. You get the view of jagged rocks and rough seas through a glass-paneled walkway built on top of the cape or headland. The attraction is free, and you can walk down from the viewing platform to the small seafood market, where they sell fresh catches of the day.
