Travel in Busan

Normally day 1 is where you settled down with the whole guesthouse, hotel or Airbnb. Talking about that, if you are new to Airbnb you can sign up using my referral link and get up to RM125+ discount of your first reservation. I would suggest for you to stay at Haeundae. During our first trip to Busan, we are staying at Busan’s city hall, which is quite empty and quiet, a little bit secluded but not in Haeundae. Therefore, in this post, our accommodation would be in Haeundae market.

Haeundae market could be quite small but it has almost every seafood Busan has to offer. You can walk through it to compare prices as most of the restaurants offer almost the same menu. Here you can see the infamous raw octopus everywhere.

These two places that will consume a lot of energy and a lot of time. It is recommended to not put these two together in one day because there will be a lot of walking.

Gamcheon Culture Village

Gamcheon Culture Village

Gamcheon Culture Village; 1 hour and 20 minutes away by bus. Jagalchi market is near to Gamcheon Culture village, approximately 24 minutes away by bus. Here is also where you can indulge Busan’s seafood. The price stated might not be the real price, so it is better to ask the waiter/waitress there.

Taejongdae; 1 hour and 17 minutes away by bus. Do eat at Taejongdae nearby restaurant but most restaurant in Korea have rules, especially the minimum order. So, it is normal if you cant order a portion of 4 for 6 people. There is also a place to eat seafood below the Taejongdae observatory. The best place to eat if we disregard the price haha


Then, we have places with a little bit less walking and great great view.

Oryukdo Skywalk

Oryukdo Skywalk; 55 minutes away by bus. The skywalk here is free haha in case you are wondering.
