The WA Bar in Busan has a good rep. It's part of a chain of western bars. The one in my home city is great.

Fat Joe's, which is owned by a Canadian, is one of the top expat hang-outs.

T2W,

If you're looking for a good expat scene, check out the PNU area. There are tons of little places where you'll find a good mix of expats. The Basement, Camel, Crossroads, SoulTrane and others are all in this area. There's good shopping and eats, too, so you can kind of get it all in one place. For more information on good hotspots, check out www.pusanweb.com, and go to the Entertainment section. There are listings for great expat spots all over town.

If you don't get to PNU, you can find places all over town...

PS, if you make it here before the end of June, drop me a line and we'll go out for a drink! Amanda

Hi.

Can anyone give me directions from the Lotte hotel to the PNU bar area? I could get the subway there (need clear directions from the subway station, though, as my sense of direction is terrible). Depending on what time the subway closes, I'd probably need to get a taxi back.

Are there any other bar areas or individual expat bars near the Lotte? I'm interested in bars with cheap drink, good music and the opportunity to meet expats and English-speaking locals. I'm not interested in clubs/discos or dance music.

Cheers,

tkdsimes

Travel Tips for Busan

Windsurfing

by GracesTrips

Haeundae Beach is the nicer beach in Busan. But there are several seperate beaches all along the coast. The waves are not too big so conventional surfing is probably not possible.
At Songjeong Beach, we spotted this windsurfing rental business and the travel brochures suggest this is the watersport of choice.

Just like in Seoul, taxis in Busan are plentiful. Basic fare on a regular taxi is 1,800 KRW and 4,200 KRW on a deluxe taxi for the first two kilometers.

Due to Busan's good subway network (please refer to the next tip for details), you shouldn't be in the need for a taxi unless you are going to stay out late at night or like exploring some of the city's outskirts.

However, taxis can provide you with a fast ride to the airport:
I was at Haeundae and originally intended to take the airport limousine bus. However, I ended up waiting for my bus, who was seemingly stuck in traffic jam, for more than 20 minutes and a big risk of not being able to reach the airport on time (the bus ride takes an hour). Hence, the hotel concierge recommended me to take a taxi, which was supposed to take only about 40 minutes... we made it in less than half an hour!!!

The ride was incredible... rather like being part of a Formula One race. Maybe I shouldn't have told the driver that I was in a hurry. ;-)

Anyway, I arrived safely and with time to spare.
Cost: 20,000 KRW

Haeundae Beach

by iwys

Haeundae Beach is probably the best-known and certainly the most popular beach in Korea. The entire 2km stretch of golden sand is covered with thousands of people throughout the summer, but in winter it is almost completely empty.

Yongdusan Park

by iwys

Yongdusan Park is on a small mountain overlooking downtown Busan. It is the city's most popular park and contains Busan Tower, the Flower Clock, a statue of Admiral Yi Sun-shin and the Balkagjeong Pavilion.

Busan, Korea

by Ewingjr98

Busan, formerly known as Pusan, sits in the southeast corner of Korea. It is one of the Korea's largest cities and it's main port. During the Korean War, the "Busan Perimeter" became famous as the last line of defense for the United Nations forces prior to the Incheon invasion.

Busan is a scenic city surrounded by mountains and harbors. Like Seoul, there are parks, fortresses, and other historic sights that make Pusan interesting. Pusan is also home to Korea's best beaches, great seafood, and some good nightlife.
