Busan - excursions and day trips

Whether you're looking for a full day excursion or a day trip from Busan, there are many things to see and do. If you're looking for something unique, you should consider visiting the APEC House. It's an artistic enclave and one of the best spots to learn about Busan's artistic side.

Another great day trip from Busan is the Oedo Island. This is a beautiful island located just a few kilometers from the city. You can take a guided tour to the island or take a ferry ride. Depending on the time of year, the island can be covered in a variety of greenery. The island is a great place to go for a relaxing walk, and it's also home to a large number of traditional Japanese restaurants. You can spend as much or as little time as you want on the island, but most visitors are limited to about 90 minutes. You can also purchase tickets for the Songdo Cable Car, which will help you get around the island.

For a more budget-friendly option, you can take a free walk along the Igidae Coastal Walk. This is a scenic walk that offers views of both the Sea of Japan and the city of Busan.

Another great day trip from Busan involves visiting the Taejongdae Resort Park. This area of the city is full of beautiful Buddhist temples, as well as lookout points. The park is also known for its dense forest. It's easy to access by public transport, and it can take about an hour and a half to reach. During the day, you can enjoy the scenery or stop to buy souvenirs. The area is also home to a leopard cat and a venomous pit viper.

Another Busan day trip that you can't miss is the Gamcheon Culture Village. This is the best place to wander around in Busan and experience the artistic side of the city. There are many craft shops and teahouses hidden in the neighborhood. You can also watch street performers. Among the many attractions in the area is the Haedong Yonggungsa Temple. This Buddhist temple is built on a hilltop, and it offers panoramic views of the ocean.


If you're interested in learning about the Korean War, visit the United Nations Memorial Cemetery. There are memorials for several countries that participated in the conflict, as well as bronze panels and a memorial service hall. The cemetery also holds annual events. If you're interested in exploring the area's history, you can also visit the Tombstone Culture Village. People who live in this culture village have been living in tents since 1951.

The Jagalchi Fish Market is one of the biggest seafood markets in the city, and it's also home to dozens of fresh and dried seafood. During the day, there is a large street food market with seafood rolls and hotteok (pancake).


You can find plenty of accommodation in Busan. If you want to stay at a hotel, you can check out the Stanford Inn, located right next to the Jagalchi Market. This hotel is also close to the bus station and train station. If you don't have a lot of money, you can choose a guesthouse, which is the perfect place to stay when you're traveling on a budget.

Do I have to give my guide a tip?
No. It is not required and not expected of you to tip your guide. However, if one is presented, the guide might accept a gratuity. To guarantee that they are fairly compensated for their time, each guide sets the price of their tours. They do not depend on gratuities from tours as a result. If you want to support your guide, write a review of your tour.
What happens once I make a reservation?
After making the payment, you should wait at least 24 hours prior to the travel date for your Local Expert to confirm the requested date. If your reservation is approved, a confirmation email will be sent to your registered email address with the reservation's specifics and the Local Expert's direct contact information.
Is it possible to py in cash?
We have a policy that states that a reservation can only be verified after a legitimate payment has been made on our website. The process aids in preventing disputes that could occur while paying in cash in person. You can be confident that this money won't be given to the Local Expert right away. After your tour is over, Excursopedia will hold it and then provide it to the Local Guide.
How can I find out if a reservation has been confirmed?
When you finish making your online payment and the Local Guide accepts your booking request, your reservation will be finalized. You will receive a confirmation email. Don't worry; if the Local Guide does not confirm your booking after you provide your credit card information, the transaction will not be completed.
