Busan is the second largest city and the number 1 trading port in Korea. Attractions include the beach areas, islands, and Hae Ahn Park coupled with historical ruins and sites, and Dongnae Shrine. Surely Busan's most charming tourist point is its beautiful sea vistas. The natural beauty of Busan is a perfect example of harmony between mountains, rivers and sea.
