    Long stretch of beach and perfect for a stroll on a cooling day. Quiet on a weekday morning.
    There was a sand castle competition with several castles being built.
    Walked all the way to the coastal blue train station at Mipo.

    This is a nice sandy beach which offers great views of the Busan suspension bridge.

    The area is very clean and well kept and there is a wide array of eateries - licensed and unlicensed - behind the beach.

    It was a great temple with museum facilities. I recommend anyone who come to busan to visit this place. It exhibits the richness of Bhuddist culture in busan

    Another city another Temple, but this one was very well worthwhile visiting. It is popular, a lot of tour buses, and therefor a lot of people vying for the best position. best photo shoot. There is a lot to see, together with a scattering of stalls selling various items.

    The main path to the temple is via a lot of steps, but there is a foot path, which is rather steep, but OK to traverse.

    Good day out.
    Lots of walking and exercise but followed up with some cakes and drinks!

    Lovely scenery in the Geo Park
    Great views from the observeratory.
    The cafe is up the stairs and offers some tasty treats as well as a relaxing sit down observing the views.

    The light house is a little further on. We only visited the outside as we couldn't handle any more stairs.

    There is a little road train that you can get but it was closed ont he daybwe visited.

    Outside the Geo Park is a road full of convenience stores, cafes and some touristy games etc.

    In the Geo Park there were several toilets signposted along the route. Some of them were a bit off the main road/ path but there were some close to the start and observation deck too.

    Bring layers. Even if it's chilly out - it's deceptive, as the walking warms you up and with layers, you can take them off as you go.

    The day our tour visited Busan it was pouring! Instead of abbreviating the visit at this memorial, our guide persevered and so we stood outside under our umbrellas and wearing our rain gear for 45 minutes while we traipsed past the memorials. The photos of it in the sunshine look great, but that wasn't our experience. The movie that we watched was very interesting and well-done and brought home how this area gives comfort for those who had troop members who died in the Korean War.

    We visited BIFF Square twice in December 2023, once during a weekday night and once on a weekend night. During the weekday night, the street stalls were more muted and some were not opened, as there was much less a crowd.

    During the weekend, BIFF Square is packed so much so that there were traffic controllers manning the streets, ushering pedestrians off the roads when cars were approaching. There were many shopping options and many street stalls selling local snacks. We tried quite a few of these stalls and the food were generally nice. Definitely worth a visit.

    This is a very impressive white suspension bridge which dominates the skyline from a number of vantage poutine in Busan.

    This was also part of our tour package through our cruise line. It's a nice easy walk, some of it uphill, through a nice park with plenty of trees to provide shade on a warm day. There is the APEC house halfway round, which we also visited on the tour. Some great views of the city and beach. Allow around an hour or so for a nice walk.

    One of the larger markets, with cooked and fresh food, produce and household items in different sections/buildings.

    Fascinating if you like markets of this nature as there is always something new to explore.

    To get to Gukje, if you come via the metro, you can walk through BIFF Square and the food stalls there. Jagalchi fish market is also in the vicinity. Modern shops and cafes line the several streets before Gukje, providing an interesting contrast to the traditional market.

    Not so touristy, with many locals doing their regular weekly shopping and the odd market-loving visitor walking through.
