Not a lot to do here but good access to the city.

We cruised into Busan and the port and terminal had plenty of transportation available to get into the city. People were very friendly.

Easily accessible terminal for ferry access...just remember to bring cash for the port tax! Bright, clean, and easy to navigate even if the Korean language leaves you boggled.

The building is a bit run-down, can get very crowded just before ferry departures, most of facilities are old, like toilet and chairs. Nevertheless it's very convenient that you can buy tickets for ferry at the same building (companies are just upstairs, not at the ground floor)

We thought there would be some kind of fisherman’s wharf or something by people saying there are restaurants and activities. It sure was not like that at all. It’s a port. There are a few restaurants but there’s no fanfare, no attractions, no specials, not touristy at all. Don’t bother!

The port area is nice, good for a walk on a nice day. Also plenty of street food options around and markets. Especially if you're looking for seafood there are many vendors.

Port is excellent with a free bus to town! Easy in and out but the line was long to get back. So we took a very cheap taxi. Honest and cheap.

Busan is a very busy port and there is now the óld'port and 'new'port. It is worth a look if you are not from a city that has a large shipping component.
