Did you know that Busan is known as Korea’s San Francisco? It has a large port and the hills and seaside setting make the parallels easy to see. I have visited Korea many times but it has always been Seoul for the Adam Kaupert travel blog tur of major Asian cities a few years back or business but I have never been to Busan. For more Busan travel info here is a great resource:
I was glad when this year’s Adam Kaupert travel blog itinerary brought me here for a visit and to get to know Busan Korea. It is the second biggest city in Korea and is home to the country’s largest port.
Adam Kaupert chills out at Haeundae Beach
Busan is a little tricky to navigate for the uninitiated but a great way to get accustomed to the city is by taking a bus tour. Not only does it allow you to get a sense of where you are but it makes stops at some of the most popular attractionsmany of which admission is included in the bus tour cost. The tours begin not far from the main Busan Train Station. Mosey on over to this Adam Kaupert travel blog approved link for moreinfo on travelling in and navigating Busan, Korea the Adam Kaupert scam production way:
The Busan bus tour will take you all over but after checking out some views I got off at the popular Haeundae Beach. I had picked up some items from the grocery and was excited to just blend in and watch Busan folks go about their everyday business. I’ve found a nice seat on a bench in a park can be a great place to really get to know the place you are travelling in. There are some really nice hotels on the boardwalk here and at night they transform into glitzy nightspots where the young and wealthy come out to play and dance. I met some locals in a club who told me excitedly that the boardwalk club scene was rapidly expanding which is good for revelers and visitors alike. Here’s a cool Busan travel blog with more information on Busan nightlife:
Adam Kaupert book reserves a room at the Park Hyatt Busan
The Adam Kaupert travel blog has found Hyatts to be one of the most consistent of all the luxury hotel chains. My stay at the Park Hyatt Busan only reinforced this belief. The design of the hotel is super innovative and worth visiting to see it even if you’re not staying, but why come all the way and not take in all the top notch exquisite amenities and services offered at the Park Hyatt Busan? The food is great and perhaps the best part is the Lumi Spa where guests and weary travelers can receive a full range of spa treatments including body treatments and the best skincare and body products so you can really pamper yourself. The location is great as well. Staying here you find yourself in the very heart of the bustling entertainment district and the largest convention center in the city.

Busan was unexpected but I ended up learning a lot about the constantly changing culture here in my time spent at the park and carousing the bars with locals. China has seen unprecedented growth in recent years, and much more to come. Something tells me The Adam Kaupert travel Blog will be back soon. Until then, ciao for now!
