Busan Vacation Travel Guide | Expedia (4K)


The city of Busan sits on the Korean Peninsula’s
south-eastern coastline, just a short flight from Asian capitals like
Beijing and Tokyo, and a two-and-a-half hour bullet train ride
from Seoul. South Korea’s largest port and second-largest city spreads out along the jagged coastline of
the Yeongnam Region, and rises into a sea of mountains beyond. From the shellfish which drew Paleolithic
gatherers to its rugged shores, to the never-ending offerings of Jagalchi
Fish Market, …from the Joseon ships of old, to the dockyards which helped drive South
Korea’s economic miracle, Busan has forever been linked to the ocean. As the world races further into the 21st century, Busan continues to evolve, into a haven where hard-working Koreans can
let their hair down, reflect on the past, and peer into the future. While the bustling port underpins Busan’s
economic vitality, it’s the city’s beaches which increasingly
draw travellers from all over Asia. Just a 40-minute subway ride from Busan Station
is the city’s star attraction, Haeundae Beach, South Korea’s biggest and
best-loved beachside hangout. Follow the long sweep of sands eastward to
Dalmaji Hill, an outlook adored by the wandering poets of
yesteryear and the coffee lovers of today. While at Haeundae’s eastern end, take the paths through Dongbaek Park to APEC House, where Asian and Pacific leaders enjoyed some
of Busan’s most celebrated views during their 2005 summit. Busan’s ever-changing coastline offers scenery and activities to match your every mood. For total relaxation, unroll your towel on the half-moon curve of
Gwangalli Beach, and enjoy gentle waters, laid-back vibes, and views to Diamond Bridge. If you’re looking for adventure, join a charter at the fishing village of Cheongsapo. Or step out onto the skywalk at the end of
the Yongho-Dong Peninsula, and take in the views of the Oryukdo Islands
just offshore. Seeking a little enlightenment? Head to Gijang, and make a wish at the Haedong Yonggungsa
Temple, one of the few Buddhist temples in Korea built
by the ocean. Cross historic Yeongdodaegyo Bridge and head
to Taejongdae Park. It was at these cliffs where, according to
legend, gods and goddesses once came to relax, and the 29th King of Silla spent his leisure
time shooting arrows into the passing clouds. For today’s mere mortals, the park’s the perfect place to slip into
a slower state of mind as cargo ships journey to far off ports. The meditative mood continues at Songdo Beach. Step across the swirling waters on the elevated
walkway, whose curves depict a mythical dragon taking
flight from it’s coastal lair. Then, let your mind wander and the kids run
free at Dadaepo Beach. Here, at the mouth of South Korea’s longest river, the endless sands and sea mists blur the lines
between heaven and earth. While Busan’s story has been continually
shaped by the sea, it’s a city equally defined by its mountains. Just above the port, ride the escalator to the summit of Yongdusan Park and share the views with the statue of 16th
century naval hero, Admiral Yi Sun Sin. On nearby Mt Cheonma, take the 20-minute hike to the observation
platform to see “Dynamic Busan” spread out before you. In the city’s north, climb aboard a cable car for the five-minute
ride to Geumgang Park, the home to Busan’s highest peak. Join the thousands of locals who hike here
each weekend, exploring the forest trails and walls
of Geumgang Fortress. The park is also home to Beomeosa Temple, whose warrior monks fought off invaders in
the 16th century, and again in the 20th. Busan never forgets its heroes, and at nearby
Chungnyeolsa Temple, pay your respects to the spirits of Busan’s
patriots who gave their lives when their city was besieged by Japanese troops
in 1592. In 1950, Busan was again under siege. At the UN Memorial Cemetery, visit the gravesites of some of the 140,000 troops who formed a last-ditch perimeter around Busan, fighting off waves of North Korean soldiers. Busan was one of the few cities of the south
not to fall during the Korean War, becoming a safe haven for over half a million refugees. At the UN Peace Memorial Hall, the sacrifices of both combatants and civilians
are remembered, as are the stories of suffering from ongoing
conflicts around the globe. Busan owes much to it’s resilient refugees. Dishes born of post-war hardship have been
perfected into culinary masterpieces. An alleyway where a refugee couple sold magazines
discarded by American GIs grew into an entire street of bookshops. And a few humble stalls where the newcomers
traded life’s basics is now one of Korea’s biggest and best-loved
traditional markets, selling everything from Kimchi to sneakers. Busan’s refugees first filled the portside
areas, before building hundreds of makeshift homes
on the steep barren hills around the city. After years of keeping their noses to the
grindstone, the residents of Gamcheon have embraced their
creative side, adorning their laneways and walls with artworks which have transformed their neighbourhood
into one of the city’s top tourist attractions. Gamcheon’s makeover symbolises Busan’s
new-found creative, cultural and entrepreneurial energy which
has blossomed all over the city. See this energy in its world-class museums, …galleries, …and festivals. Hear it, in the happy bustle of its shopping streets, and across the three-million-square-feet of
the world’s largest department store. Smell it; Taste it, in a cuisine which lures
foodies and seafood lovers from all over the globe. And feel it, as the city erupts in light each night, just like the displays of its annual lantern
festival. After centuries of keeping enemies from its
gates, and decades of hardship and toil, this rollicking port town has at last come
into its own. Today’s Busan is a bridge, perfectly connecting
the past and future into a very special now. Welcome to Busan, a feast for all the senses,
and the soul.

  4. 멋진 고층빌딩이 쭉쭉 뻗어있는 마린시티나 센텀시티 같은 현대적이고 멋진곳은 안보여주고 태종대에서 본 구시가지나 빈민촌에 페인트 칠해놓은 감천마을같이 후진 동네만
    보여주는건 무슨 경우임? 홍콩이나 싱가폴 같은곳은 멋있는 고층빌딩들을 찍어 보여주면서 부산은 후진곳만 보여주니 익스피디아가 데체 부산과 무슨 웬수지간임? ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

  6. This may seem weird, but whenever I watch one of these, I pretend I live in the place that is being spotlighted. Like right now, I’m pretending I live in Busan (I wish). I think it’s so cool how I do that.

  7. As a Korean guy who lived in Florida for a year, my favorite city is Miami. I went to Busan last year, and it really reminded me of Miami so much. Cool city,,,,, and definitely different vibe from Seoul.

  8. 부산 교각 설계 디자이너가 누구인가?
    안짱 다리의 대가. 엄청 보기 싫다. 안목이 그거 밖에 아니 되나? 인천 대교도 안짱 다리 교각이고. 한국 놈들 수준이 그러하지 무어. 후진 스타열.

  9. Hello travelers. My friends and I are treveling 2 and a half day to South Korea. I think is a short time for enjoy this wonderful country. For the previous explained reason I am undecided of visiting in Seoul or Busan. So considering I will also go to Tokyo, Beijing and Bangkok what do you recommend visiting Busan or Seoul?

  10. Thanks to Expedia because of your videos, I am able to see beautiful places in the world ….I am getting knowledge about different cultures from different areas…

  11. 불교 사찰에 나오는 나치 문양은 나치 문양이 아닌 불교 문양입니다.
    나치가 배낀걸수도 있구요
    불교는 천년전에도 있던 종교입니다.

  12. 내 고향 부산을 이런 영상으로 보니 너무 좋군요..
    지금은 타지에서 살고있어서 부산이 그립습니다
