Known for its incredible beaches, rugged mountain ranges and historic temples, Busan offers a one-of-a-kind combination of a comfortable climate, historic culture and fun entertainment. Though it’s the second-largest city in South Korea, Busan maintains a chill beachside atmosphere complete with plenty of cool bars, small boutiques, trendy cafes and sensational seafood. The urban hub is on the coast and dissected by mountains making it just as tempting to nature lovers as city slickers.
