After hotel pickup in Busan, board a comfortable coach for your full-day sightseeing tour. Your first stop is Beomeosa (Temple of the Nirvana Fish), situated halfway up Mt Geumjeong. As you walk around the complex, your informative guide points out traditional Korean Buddhist architectural features of the temple, originally built during the reign of King Munmu of the Silla dynasty in 678.
Once you’ve explored the many gates, halls, and pagodas, reboard the bus for Gamcheon Culture Village. Pastel houses, sculptures and other art installations adorn the hillside village built after the Korean War, garnering it the nickname ‘Santorini of the East.’ Follow your guide on foot through a maze of alleyways, and make a stop for more photo ops at the Sky Garden.
Refuel with a lunch a local Korean restaurant then continue to Jagalchi Fish Market, Korea's largest fish market. Observe the all-female vendors in their aprons as they wash down stalls filled with an impressive range of seafood and dried fish on display.
Back aboard the coach, head to the popular destination of Yongdusan Park where you can view downtown Busan from the top of the 394-foot-high (120-meter) Busan Tower. If it’s a clear day, look out across the East Sea for Tsushima Island of Japan.
Your final stop, Gukje Market (International Market), provides plenty of shopping opportunities. The wholesale market includes several venues, like Ggangtong Market, Manmul Street and Changsun shopping mall, where souvenirs and good bargains are plentiful.
After your full-day tour of Busan attractions, you’re returned to your hotel by coach.
