The first thing you'll want to do is hit the beach. Busan's main beaches each offer something slightly different. Songjeong is calm and family friendly, youthful and bustling, while Haeundae is home to some of the most luxurious hotels in Busan. The more urban Gwangalli beach offers a lovely view of the shining Gwangandaegyo Bridge (Diamond Bridge).
Busan is known for its delicious seafood, and the best way to experience it is to head to a fish market. Eat hoe (Korean sashimi) or try some other local favourites, such as barbecued eel or spicy fish soup. Don't be shy in topping off your meal with some soju—it's the world's best-selling spirit, after all.
For a serene cultural experience, visit a temple. Head into the hills to the peaceful Beomeosa Temple, or pay a visit to the seaside Haedong Yonggungsa, which is situated on the city's northeastern coast.
