6 Best places to visit in Busan- A guideline to Busan

Busan, one of the largest cities in South Korea, also referred to as the "city of tomorrow" is where most tourists are headed due to a variety of excursions offered. Here are some places to visit.


Avani Central Busan Hotel

This was a slum before and at present, is a popular attraction due to the houses painted in kaleidoscopically vibrant colours that look like pieces of lego from afar! It makes up for a great backdrop for those social media-worthy pictures. It must be mentioned that the village itself is like an open art museum with many sculptures scattered around publicly. When it comes to tourist accommodation in Busan, hotel options are found in plenty around the village area.


2. Haeundae Beach

This beach tops the list of exotic beaches in the city of Busan. It is situated right at the very edge of the city- the concrete jungle and bustling streets slowly transcend into areas of shade and then white sand and massive rocks and of course, the blue sea. You can choose to relax or dive into some fun water sports that the beach has to offer. The area gets unmistakeably crowded during weekends when most local families head here for a quick getaway.


3. Nampodong Market

This is one of the top 3 largest markets in South Korea and is filled with hundreds of Korean delicacies and local artefacts thus making it a wonderful place for the tourists to visit. Indulge and try out all the different dishes, scour around for souvenirs to take back home, check out the thrift stores for some unique trinkets. Wear comfortable shoes because you will have a lot of walking to do!


4. Haedong Yonggung Temple

A Buddhist temple located by the beach- only one of the few that comes with such an amazing view. There is something so serene about going to a temple, meditate and pray or just get lost in the sounds of nature- the waves crashing below, the blue ocean stretching across the horizon, the clouds sailing through the sky and the trees that are found growing between rocks. It is absolutely blissful. The temple is quite close to the Haeundae Beach and less than an hour away from Avani Central Busan Hotel


5. Gwangan Bridge

This is the longest bridge in Korea that runs from Haeundae-gu and Suyeong-gu. The impressive part of the bridge is the lighting effects that can be seen during the night. About 100,000 colourful lights light up the bridge against the dark velvety sky- a picture that will leave one mesmerized. There are many dining options available ranging from stalls to restaurants to fine-ding areas that are strategically using their location to lure customers in.


6. Busan Modern History Museum

The best way to learn about a country's history and appreciate its culture and traditions is by visiting the local museums. The museum educates one of the Korean War, World War II and the consequences of it. There are artefacts and statues of heroes, traditional costumes and more that will leave you amazed.
