Pusan: Pop In To Pusan

Haeundae Beach If you’re looking for a lonely stretch of sand on which to lay out your towel, this isn’t it. Haeundae (http://www.haeundae.busan.kr/eng/index.html) is a mile-long city beach lined with high-rise hotels. Think Waikiki or Copacabana. On a sunny weekend you will be jostling with more than 100,000 sun-worshippers, yet that’s part of the attraction: it’s a great place to mix informally with ordinary Koreans. A variety of festivals and cultural events take place on the beach throughout the year. At Folk Square you can watch, or even take part in, traditional Korean games such as neoldduigi (in which someone jumps onto one end of a seesaw and launches the person at the other end high into the air). Get to the beach by Subway Line 2 to Haeundae Station, or by the No. 139 or 140 bus from downtown Pusan.
