On a recent trip to South Korea, here are our favorite spots and where we stayed in SeoulGyeongju & Busan.  South Korea is an amazing, adventurous vibrant place to choose as your next destination.

Our Favorite Spots in Busan

  • Gukje Market – Following the Korean War, refugees who fled to Busan set up stalls in order to make a living, and this was the beginning of the Gukje Market (gukje meaning “international” in Korean). The Gukje Market is one of Korea’s largest markets; each alleyway is crowded with stalls, and it connects to Bupyeong Market, Kkangtong Market, and other smaller markets. The market stocks such a wide variety of goods, that you can find almost everything you need right here.
  • Busan Gamcheon Cultural Village  – Picturesque attraction featuring a village of colorful houses, painted murals, shops & cafes.
  • Busan Gwangandaegyo Bridge (aka “Diamond Bridge”) – a suspension bridge located in Busan, South Korea. It connects Haeundae-gu to Suyeong-gu. The road surface is about 6,500 meters long, with the bridge as a whole spanning 7,420 meters. It is the second longest bridge in the country after the Incheon Bridge.
