If you think that you can come to BIFF to see film and cinema related stuff you will be sorely disappointed. Nothing almost nothing, is related to the film industry. (Ok maybe those handprints) It should be called the Busan International FOOD Festival. The food carts are everywhere. You can't walk 2 steps without seeing food. Left right front back... More

The only things there related to the film industry would be the many handprints of actors/actresses (both Asian and Western) on the floor as well as a movie theatre. What strikes visitors though is the number of food carts lining the entire area. One can find pretty much any Korean street food within this area.

Great shops around and loads of eatery. Suggest Palsaik.com, the locals queue up for this. As for the street food corner, don't bother. It's not nice and not matching to a Singaporean's accomodative multicultural taste buds. And because prices are not shown at all, they will pass you other foods to try and you will fall into the tourist trap.

Wish my stomach was a bottomless pit so that I could fill it with the awesome street food! A must try local street snack will be Hor Tteok, a pan-fried pancake filled with roasted nuts and seeds! Go for the longest queue! This place is super big and confusing, if you walk in, there will be streets selling designated things... More

There are lots of local food stalls and souvenir stalls. A cinnamon and brown sugar pancake which called "Hotteok" is the best street food among all. It's really super yummy and cost 1000krw only. Make sure you didn't miss this famous street food when you are in BIFF Square. You should also give a try on the Turkish ice-cream and... More

I were staying in Hotel Noah, near The BIIF Square...and would you believe it was the same week the Film Festival was going on! A huge stage, seating and entertainment for the opening nite and scheduled Films showing. Now we know, to research better to enjoy more if the Events going on!

I was a bit disappointed about his area. Heard a lot about it, but didn't find it that great! Just another market area with lots of food stands in the evening. If you run out of time just skip this one!

It is full of kiosks, restaurants and shops so you can have your lunch/dinner or go shopping here. It's just like any central area in any big city.
