Busan - a pictorial diary

Busan is the second largest city in South Korea and is situated in the West coast, facing Japan.  It was the host of the 2002 Asian Games and the 2005 APEC Summit. It is a popular destination for holidays, especially during summer given the proximity of this city to the sea.

Among the popular spot in Busan is the Haeundae Beach which is flanked by rows of hotels. Even in spring the beach is vibrant with activities.

Fishing appears to be popular amongst the people of Busan. Fresh seafood is readily available and offered in varieties of styles.

A boat trip along the coast would provide the opportunity for visitors to appreciate the city from a different perspective. A number of little islands along the coast add to the beauty of the city. Friendly seagulls will accompany you during the trip.

Dongbaek Park is a nice walking path with flower and greeneries. The APEC Building is also situated at this park.

There are a number of highlands around Busan. Trekking those highlands would provide visitors with a more wholesome view of the city.

While communication could be a challenge for non-Korean speakers, the warmth of the people of Busan will make you feel welcomed.
