Gift Giving in Busan

by Jcats

The giving of gifts is almost expected. What kind of gifts should one give?

Re: Gift Giving in Busan

by olddude

The giving of gifts depends on the occasion and how well you know the person. Koreans don't give them just because. So what is the occasion?

I don't know about Korea, but Chinese people like to give fruit. I always think fruit is a universal gift. Who doesn't like a box of Asian pears?

I was often given decorative wooden ducks as they are a sign of friendship, and did so myself.

Older people give younger people money when those leave for a trip.

But the Koreans also appreciated gifts I brought from my homecountry, like special chocolate figures, or books about the place I came from - just something special with a background and/or (hi-)story.

Ducks if like in Japan... one explanation is that a pair of ducks represents the relationship. Put them on the shelf and face each other and all is well. Face them away from each other and there is a fight. To give a pair of ducks to anyone who is not married could be an awkward situation.

Small gifts that have some connection to your homeland would be perfect. But as said before, gifts are not always given depending on how well you know them.

Travel Tips for Busan

Shoes and Heads

by LaLaInTheWaynePlane

Give a little nod of your head when you say hello and goodbye...if it's someone important make a bigger nod/bow.

Shoes...look at other people...did they take their shoes off and put on slippers??? then YOU should too.

Busan at night by Metro

by SLLiew

I am not sure why I was surprised that Busan has a Metro since it is the 2nd largest South Korean city after Seoul.

Actually, it should be easy to get around but I had some difficulty perhaps because I was tired and I went the wrong direction. Usually I do not have problem with any metro whether in Paris or Tokyo but did not do my homework well to get around in Busan at night.

Beomesa Buddhist Temple

by Ewingjr98

Beomesa Buddhist Temple was my favorite place in Busan. Considered one of Korea's "Great 5 Temples." It is located deep in the woods and on the edge of the mountains at the northern fringe of Busan. It has many beautiful buildings and is full of worshippers. Definitely worth the trip!

Beomesa was founded in 678, mostly destroyed by the Japanese in 1592-1593, then rebuilt in 1602. It was renovated in 1613 and 1713.

From Beomesa, there are trails to Guemjeonsanseong Mountain Fortress.

Taejongdae is located at the tip of Yeongdo-gu Island which is connected to the Nampodong/ Jagalchi area by bridge. When we arrived at the park ,we saw many people lining up to take the miniture train round the park. We decided just to walk. You can go off the main path to the right and take a boat round to the lighthouse, cliffs and rock formations. There is also a pebble beach off to the right. We did not visit either of these. The walk to the lighthouse is quite long, always uphill and with few sights. You will pass a small temple and the observatory. From the observatory you can sometimes see one of the islands of Japan. It was not clear enough to do this on our trip.

When you reach the lighthouse, you go down lots of steps. There are lovely coastal views and you can see some of the weirdly weathered rocks that line the coast. These are worth seeing. If you don't fancy the walk you can get here on the minature train.

When the founders of Busan decided to build this Korean port city, they took a great bucket and filled it with apartment buildings, kimbap kiosks, seafood restaurants, Family Marts, lovemotels, and cars, and then dumped the whole load over the mountains on the shore. That's Busan.
It sprawls but it's a great place to visit. There's plenty to do and a young social scene to tap into. One remarkable characteristic of Busan is that it has no downtown core. Rather, there are at least three different thriving downtown areas, and each offers a different atmosphere and set of things to see. There's a university centre, a business centre, a foreigner district...
It's hard to navigate but if you are experienced or have a guide with you then you should be able to find something you quite enjoy.
