This Lotte Department Store Gwangbok was very big and on the floor of the basement, there was a very beautiful light and sound fountain show every 15 minutes. There were a few chairs surrounding the fountain area where visitors could sit and watch the show. At the back of this area, there were also many shops selling various kinds of... More

It's a shopping center and if you love shopping as my wife this is possibly the biggest department store in Busan. And it is just a few minutes walk away from the BIFF square.

We were there, not so much for shopping but to go up to the Sky Park on the 11th Floor, Sky Park and Observation Deck Zoo on the 12th Floor and Observation Deck on the 13th Floor. Good view of Jagalchi Market and Busan. My teenage son was more interested in the domestic animals like rabbits, birds, chicken, etc.

We came here to buy some groceries thinking that there would be more western choices, there are more than the normal Mart but still very little and super expensive. Staff doesn't speak any English.

You should visit floors 11-13 to have a great view over Busan, there's a nice green area as well. Some quite good deals in Event halls especially in B1F Floor. TGIF-restaurant has excellent steaks!

This mall was attached to the hotel we stayed in. Any high-end store you can think of is located in this mall. Tiffany's, Gucci, LV, Rolex etc. There are also other shops within the facility. There's a pharmacy on B1 of the mall in case you need something. If you're from the United States, this pharmacy is a little different... More

Apart from the shopping and restaurant options, this mall is a good option for kids. We watched the fountain show twice because my kids liked it so much, and the mini 'zoo' on the 13th floor was a welcome break from shopping for us all. It was good to step out of the mall interior, walk around on the top... More

Easy to get to from the subway. Rooftop observatory on Level 13 is awesome. Sweeping views of Busan port, bridges, Busan city and on the other side Yongdusan Park and the mountains. The food court on the lower level has bargains before closing for bread and pastries, kimbabs and other prepared delicacies. Shopping haven with so many stores. Definitely a... More

Yes, I visited this store quite often, and always found new surprises each time. Hmm, one of my favourite stops was to have lunch on the 9th floor. I usually went to the Vietnamese restaurant. yum yum. There's a phenomenal lookout area outside the top floor. You'll see a fantastic view of the surrounding area. Now, another fun and favourite...
