Pusan is the second-largest city in South Korea. It is a big industrial port with almost 4 million inhabitants. It is not a very attractive city, but there are a few nice beaches nearby. More importantly  Pusan is also the departure point for Cheju island.

Take in the view from Pusan Tower in Yongdusan Park and visit the Yi Sun-shin statue, the fish market (best seen 6-7 am) the U.N. Cemetery (where fallen U.N. soldiers from the Korean War are buried) and the Municipal Museum.

Daytrips include Haeundae which has casinos and a spa); Kumgang Park (beautiful cherry blossoms in the spring); and Pomosa, a 7th-century temple area.

Pusan is 340 km southeast of Seoul.
