South Korea: Quick Busan trip

28 June 2012

Gyeongju to Busan is a short bus ride and after ancient Gyeongju, I was smacked with the more vibrant, surfing/beachy type culture of Busan. Some prefer to stay for longer but one day was enough for me.

Right by the fish market- port

After a stroll around the port and a visit to the fish market, I basically spent most of the day walking around Gamcheon Cultural Village.

The Gamcheon Culture Village is built on a steep hillside where amongst the houses and alleys, you can see many interesting local stores. ┬áSince Busan is well known for the film festival, they have a BIFF square. It’s rather dull so instead of checking out all the handprints left behind by stars, I spent the afternoon at books stores in Busan- a must for bookworms.

Ended the night with some snacks at Busan’s many night markets.

Busan- a great city but not the most ideal place for me.
