Haeundae Beach - The main tourist attraction of Busan and the reason why many people visited Busan especially during summer.

 

A great place to unwind and chill out. Easy access to many great cafes, restaurants, subway station, local bus direct from Busan Station and nature walking trails.

 

3 train stops away to the World's largest shopping mall (Shinsegae Centum City) and a great Korean traditional spa (Spa Land) on the same line. 40-50 mins to Busan Station (KTX) by taxi, local bus or subway.

Our Recommendation: HAEUNDAE (beach)

If you are coming from Seoul or travelling onward to Seoul later, we would highly recommend you to stay near Haeundae Beach for a more relax experience. There are many scenic and probably less crowded places to explore base from Haeundae Beach.
