“Nothing fantastic”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

It was supposed to be the BIFF season but when we arrived at BIFF Square at Nampo-dong, there was nothing significant. No indication there BIFF was in progress until we walked to the cinema and saw a couple of posters.

There were a few plates on the ground with hand prints of some actors and directors. Just about it.

Upon enquiring with locals, BIFF's activities have moved to Busan Cinema Center at Haeundae. :( Hence, it was quite a let down.

“BEST place in Busan for street snacks!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2012

Lots of shops here (apparel, departmental stores - Korean brands and international brands, souvenir shops and stalls), fortune telling tents.. and many many many street snack stalls!! We had an amazing tummy filling time here.

You'll be spoilt for choice - tteobokki, gimbap... and HOTTEOK... Hotteok is a Korean sweet pancake (the closest thing I can describe it to), filled with brown sugar, chopped nuts and sunflower seeds, shallow pan fried. don't go for any Hotteok stall.. there is one with a very very long queue of locals. Follow the locals and only buy hotteok from that stall!

“Fancyyyy!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2012

I loved the architecture!!! Korea is a developed country and that is so obvious when we look at the buildings, road and people. I love the roof of the square, its color was changing :) Beatiful.

“needs a cleaning”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2012

most of the busan film festival shows have move away from here and towards haeundae which makes this place look a bit run down. it could do with a cleaning (I live near it and it always looks that way) and some new bright colors (the signs are all faded)

“Must see!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2012

One of my favourite places in Busan. There are lots of shops there selling cheap goods. The street food are to die for! You have to try the hotteok! Their stall are the most popular with always people lining up to buy that tiny sweet delicacy. It is also very close to Jagalchi Market, Busan Tower and Lotte Department store. You can also catch the bus or taxi to Tae Jong Dae.
