Stop At: Songdo Skywalk, 129-4, Amnam-dong, Seo-gu, Busan South Korea

The sky walk has drawn attention as the first of its kind in Korea, and for its long, curving trail. To date, the first section of the walk
has been installed and measures 104 m, stretching around Geobukseom Island. When completed next February, the Songdo Sky Walk will
set a new record as the longest ocean walk in Korea at 296 m in length and 2.3 m in width.
The sky walk will also have a viewing platform stretching out into the water to give visitors a spectacular view of the coastline.
Transparent tempered glass was also used in sections of the flooring for the walk, allowing for clear views of the waters below and
giving people the true sensation of walking on water. It is positioned 5.5~8 m above sea level making it far closer to the sea than
the Oryukdo Sky Walk, which is positioned 37 m above the shore, along a seashore cliff. Everyone will be able to enjoy the thrilling and
exciting experience of watching blue waves under their feet.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Gamcheon Culture Village, 203, Gamnae 2-ro, Saha-gu, Busan 49368 South Korea

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Yongdusan Park, 37-55, Yongdusan-gil, Jung-gu, Busan 48950 South Korea

Yongdusan Park, one of the most popular mountains in Busan
Yongdusan in downtown Busan, is one of the 3 well-known mountains in Busan. Its old name is Songhyunsan, which means a mountain has a view of the sea through the dense fine tree forest. Later the name has changed into Yongdusan. It came from its shape, which is similar to dragon head and people thought it has a spirit to defeat enemies coming over the sea.
On the mountain were shrine built by Japanese people during Japanese colonial role, but now are Cheokhwabi monument (the stone monument to the exclusion of foreigners from the country), Chunghontap (memorial tower for Korean war victims), 4.19 Revolution monument (the student's anti-government revolt), the statue of General Lee Sunsin(the great commander in Joseon Dynasty period(1392-1910)) and Busan tower.
During Korea war, displaced people built houses on it even on the top, but 2 times of big fires took all them away making it bald mountain. Since then, fierce efforts to plant trees have created such beautiful park. The name of the park was once Unam park in the time of the Liberal Party’s ruling but it went back to Yungdosan park after April revolution (1960). It is a place with beautiful scenery. Especially the night landscape from Busan tower is magnificent

Stop At: BIFF Square, Nampo-dong, Jung-gu, Busan South Korea

Following the Korean War, refugees who had fled to Busan set up stalls in order to make a living, and this was the beginning of the Gukje Market (gukje meaning "international"). The Gukje Market is one of Korea’s largest markets; each alleyway is crowded with stalls, and it connects to the Bupyeong Market, Kkangtong Market, and other smaller markets. The market stocks such a wide variety of goods, that you can find almost everything you need right here.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Jagalchi Market, Nampo-dong, Jung-gu, Busan South Korea

The Jagalchi Market is Korea's largest seafood market. After the Korean War the market solidified itself as a fish market. Most of the people who sell fish are women, so the women who sell here are called 'Jagalchi Ajumma,' 'ajumma' meaning middle-aged or married women.
This market represents Busan and is famous throughout the country. If you visit you can eat fresh raw fish right at the market. Even these days you can see women selling mackerel, sea squirts (ascidians) and whale meat on wooden boxes along the road.

AWESOME Shore Excursion in Busan! Highly Recommend!!!

Beth was our guide for our group. She was an amazing tour guide! Showed us so many places/sites and tailored the tour to what we wanted to see and when we needed to be back to the ship for immigration. About 14 of us on the Windstar booked this trip. We were on a chartered Windstar cruise. She picked us up on time and got us back in time as well. Her personal stories were fun and she made the most of every minute of our tour. I could not believe she got us all the places we wanted to see in time. The lunch experience was incredible. We usually dont like to waste tour time on eating, but this was a local place and a fabulous experience!! I would highly recommend this tour to everyone!!! I was so pleased I had booked it. We saw twice the amount of sights that the Windstar excursions offered for half the price. Book this tour, you will be so glad you did!!!!
best excursion of our Japan/Busan Cruise

We were a small group. Just my husband and myself and two sisters from Pennsylvania and our guide 'Beth' was excellent. She had a very good command of English & knowledge of her subject & was most charming & accommodating in allowing for my husbands bad back & trouble climbing lots of stairs. Whenever possible she left us & ran up 100,s of stairs to fetch our minibus.Highly recommended!
Outstanding Day

Our guide Beth was fantastic. She was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The places we visited were impressive. The cherry blossoms were spectacular. Beth also catered for my needs with an allergy to seafood.
Great experience

It was an excellent shore excursion, saw many interesting sights and the tour guide was lovely, very knowledgeable and accommodating with my husband who could not walk as fast as the rest of the small group of 6 people. The other tour participants were younger and walking faster as us who are almost 80 but the guide made sure we caught up and did not get lost. She was waiting at the gate holding up a sign with our name when we got off the ship and got us back in plenty of time, there was never a worry that we might miss the ship. As a precaution to other travelers: there is quite a bit of walking and climbing involved in this trip but is well worth it.
