electrical connections; wi-fi

by neil258

In the chosun beach hotel do I need to bring electrical converters? My laptop uses 120 volts. Is there wi-fi in the rooms?

Re: electrical connections; wi-fi

by DSwede

Your laptop may use 120V, but check the back of the power cord, it is 99.9% likely that it handles 110V~240V as input. If that is the case, you need no voltage converter.

I stayed in the Chosun several years ago. They had internet in the rooms, but I do not remember if you had to pay for it or not.

The rooms also had multi-plugs, compatible with several country style plugs. But I recommend stopping at an electronics store, paying the $1 and have an adapter just in case.

Travel Tips for Busan

No Graffiti Anywhere

by GracesTrips

I did not see any graffiti anywhere which really surprised me. Even in Seoul, there was none. The only time I saw something I would consider as graffiti was on the wall at one of the metro stations. I'm sure this would be removed by the end of the week.

Korea's most popular beach

by Vita500

Haeundae beach is Korea's most popular beach. Stretching 2 km long, it is home of Busan's most expensive and prestigious hotels like Paradise, Marriott or the Westin Chosun.

Millions of people visit Haeundae every year and enjoy its sandy beach, clear and shallow waters as well as the proximity to Busan's inner city.

Beware, however, in summer (especially during public holidays and weekends) it can get extremely (!) crowded. Just refer to the second picture (follow the link "1 more photos") for an idea of how crowded it can get. You'll be lucky if you can spot a piece of sand in the mass... well, some people seem to enjoy it!

Haeundae Beach

by bpacker

If personal space is more your thing, avoid Haeundae Beach in July and August, you'll see nothing but mushrooms of umbrellas across this 2km space! What can I say, this is not Ipanema so just enjoy it for it is. During spring time, it is quieter and you can stroll along the white sands and listen to the sounds of seagulls.

Some good times during my stay in Busan.

by homerjsimpson

My buddy's girlfriend's birthday on one fateful October evening. One thing Korea has is plenty of opportunity for group drinking parties. This place is a personal favorite. They have great some great dishes to complement hours of beer and sake drinking.

Koreans on an evening tear will go to three or four different destinations ordering drinks, food, and more food (it's a wonder they stay so thin). The night usually ends at one of the countless karaoke bars. Fortunately for myself Koreans don't like to publicly humiliate themselves as we Americans do and spare the neighboring revelers with individual party rooms. This night, we never actually made it to the karaoke room, although there was plenty of singing^^

Some of us decided to help out the local farmers with the onion harvest. It was a truly wonderful experience none of us will ever forget nor repeat.
We all slept on the floor of a one-room guest house and woke up to dog soup (they say it gives you lots of energy) and grilled leftovers from the night before. Fortunately, our friend was thoughtful enough to pick up some pastries and milk from the store before we left.

This is actually a common thing. Every year hundreds of college student clubs volunteer to farm, cook, and tend to the animals of the struggling farmers.

One of my favorite students after he was glued to his chair. His name was Potter and his mother and father owned one the best chicken soup restaurants in Busan.
I really enjoyed spending time away from school with him and his family. His father was a great guy with whom I shared a love of the outdoors through hikes and soccer.
