Home to majestic mountains, glistening beaches, steaming hot springs and delicious seafood, South Korea’s second-largest city Busan has much to offer.

Local tourists often come to this region to hike and to visit Buddhist temples located deep within the region’s mountains. In particular, the Beomeosa Temple, founded in 678 AD, is perhaps one of the most frequented sanctuaries in the area, and always packed with worshipers and tourists.

As for the coast, busy Haeundae Beach features the Sea Life Aquarium, plus a Folk Square with traditional games such as tug-of-war, while Gwangalli Beach has many bars and views of modern Diamond Bridge. Nature lovers will also appreciate visiting Dongbaek Island, or birdwatching at the Nakdong river estuary.

Culture chasers need not fret either, as Busan offers several museums and historical buildings, in addition to casual tent bars, chic designer cafes and seafood dining fit for a king or queen.
