Korea’s second largest city is a booming metropolis that’s fast becoming a rival to the capital, Seoul. I spent a few days here back in February 2015 prior to launching Leighton Travels.
Arriving with little to no expectations, I found myself pleasantly surprised by a scattering of unique sights and a pleasingly laid back vibe. This was especially true at the city’s spotless beaches, with fine views out over The Sea of Japan.
Moreover, I was left charmed by Busan’s many food and fish markets, not to mention Planet Earth’s only United Nations War Cemetery. Furthermore, any city that has a music bar dedicated to one man’s vast vinyl collection is alright in my book.
In fact, my only regret is that I didn’t stay a few days longer and explore deeper. One day, perhaps. To find out more about my visit to the South Korean city of Busan, check out my travel reports from:
