Busan Day Tour


Experience Busan | Cheonghak Reservoir Observatory


If you choose the morning option, then the first stop will be the Cheonghak Reservoir Observatory. This is an amazing viewpoint from where you can see the Busan Port and the Busan Port bridge. 



Once you get to the observatory, you'll see these horse and farmer statue. Honestly, there's not much here but the view..  



The view from the Cheonghak Reservoir is actually more beautiful at night, where you can see the lights from the Busan city.  

Unfortunately, the Reservoir stop on this tour is during the day, but we recommend that you check it out again at night! 



Experience Busan | Samjin Fish Cakes Main Store


Fish cakes are a Busan specialty. Samjin Fish Cakes is the oldest and most famous fish cake processsing shop in Busan, and its main store includes a little history museum and an experience center. 

Korean locals visiting Busan always makes sure to stop by Samjin; that's how famous it is.



There are all sorts of fish cakes sold at the store. You can watch them make the fish cakes through the window that looks into the kitchen!  


Rice cake roll fish cake

Cheese croquette

Out of all the options, you have to try the rice cake roll and the cheese croquette! There's a restaurant right across the store where you can sit and enjoy your fish cakes. The rice cake and cheese will just melt in your mouth when you heat them up!!  


Restaurant across from the store

The menu includes fish cake soup, fish cake cheese tteokbokki, tonkatsu, etc.~  



The fish cake making center is on the second floor. You can make your own pizza fish cakes, fish cake skewers, etc. If you have children, they're going to love this activity! 



Experience Busan | Huinyeoul Village


Huinyeol Village is a cultural village located in beautiful Yeongdo. Also renowned to be the filming locations of famous films such as The Attorney and Nameless Gangster, the village used to be a poor area, but has been remodeled by local artists to become the cultural attraction it is today. The winding alleyways on the cliff showcase the atmosphere of old Korea. 



Stop by the old fashioned shops and restaurants on these charming streets.  



Vintage ice cream shops, and sea-side view cafes and restaurants!  



Walk down the ocean trails to meet the Yeongdo emerald seas!  



Take beautiful pictures at this must-see Busan spot!  



Experience Busan | Gukje Market


Busan's markets are all in the same area, making it easier to visit them all. 

Gukje Market is the biggest traditional market in Busan that pretty much sells anything and everything.



Ggotbunine, made famous by the film Gukje Market, is a popular spot among locals. They used to sell foreign food products, but now they sell various accessories. 



The street food at Gukje Market is especially amazing! Our guide will tell you which cheap eats that you have to try!   



My favorite part of the market, however, is the mall on the second floor. These government-supported businesses are run by young Busan entrepreneurs, and you'll find all sorts of accessories, idea products, and more. 



Make sure to check out the 2nd floor mall~  



Experience Busan | Jagalchi Market


Jagalchi Market, located directly across from the Busan Port, is the biggest fish market in Korea. All sorts of marine products are being sold both inside and outside the market. 



Fresh marine products are always being sold at low prices at the Jagalchi Market. There are restaurants there as well where you can get ultra fresh sea food!

Beware though, some stores overprice their products to both locals and foreigners alike, so make sure to get the guide's recommendations!
