After pickup from your hotel or Busan’s train station, set out with your guide to Yongdusan Park.

Located in downtown Busan on Yongdusan mountain, take in sweeping views of Yongdusan Park and the sea from an observation desck in Busan Tower, a 423-foot (129-meter) building. Alternatively, stroll into the park to see the Busan citizens’ bell pavilion, a Buddhist temple or  Palgakjeong (Octagonal Pavilion).

Drive past Gwangan Bridge to Dalmaji-gil, a scenic walkway near Haeundae Beach. Admire the pine forests that blanket Mt Wausan, then stop briefly at a ginseng outlet before sitting down to a traditional Korean lunch of favorites like bibimbap, Korea's signature rice dish. After lunch, have time to shop or simply stroll along Gwangbokdong Street, observing the heart of youth fashion, art and culture.

Then continue on to the 35-acre (14-hectare) UN Memorial Cemetery, established in 1951. See the Main Gate, Dongnae Patriots Monument and Memorial Service Hall and hear from your guide about the 11 nations represented here.

Next up, drive to Haedong Yonggungsa Temple, a 14th-century Buddhist temple on the rocky coast of Busan. Built into the cliffs, the temple complex includes a three-story pagoda; stone lanterns that line a path with 108 steps, and the Gulbeop Buddhist Sanctum located inside a cave.

Your final stop takes you to Dongbaek Island (aka Dongbaekseom). Now connected to the mainland via a land bridge, the rocky promontory is filled with camellias, evergreens and dongbaek trees. See the Haeundae Carved Stone and view the 8-foot-high (2.5-meter) statue of a mermaid before stopping at Haeundae Beach.

Your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel or Busan Station.
