A nice way to spend an afternoon. Movie theaters, a nice variety of Korean, Japanese and western food. If you are looking for fashion, a nice selection is available. Very close to Lotte Department store. On weekends, sometimes there are live performances which can be very entertaining. A nice place to go for an afternoon date, just wander around.

Lots of shops and great street vendors. After marching around you will need a little snack. The Belgium Waffles are everywhere. They are AMAZING. Nice and crispy on the outside and soft in the middle.

Easily accessible from Nampo and Jagalchi metro stations. Nice shopping and food district. Full of young vibes. Nice selection of shops and eateries. Close to Busan Tower with a section linked by an escalator. A must go place in Busan.
