Voice of Travelers to Busan

Busan International Film Festival

I have recently returned from Busan. I was invited to Busan by my friend to the Busan International Film Festival. I traveled to Busan with Busan Air. Their services were superb. The plane was comfortable, had a clean cabin and very well maintained washrooms. In Busan, I checked in Park Hyatt Busan Hotel. The hotel had very nice seafood and service. Other than the festival, I also went to the Beomeosa Temple, Gamcheon Culture Village, Jagalchi Fish Market, and Gwangandaegyo Bridge.

Beach holiday in Busan

We went on a holiday in Busan to celebrate my wife's 35th birthday. We traveled by Korean Air. The airline went beyond our expectations with their services. The ground staff and cabin crew were so warm and pleasant. We were served a delicious meal onboard and there was delightful entertainment. We checked in Lotte Hotel Busan. We had a bit of time in Busan, so we visited a number of places. There was plenty of sea food; raw and cooked. I first tasted whale meat in Busan at the Jalgachi Fish Market. We also had one day dedicated to roaming the streets for shopping. Our favorite market was Gukje Market as it had a wide array of reasonably priced merchandise. On the last day, we went for a hike in Jangsan Mountain. The trail in Jangsan mountain is so far our best hiking trail.
