One of Busan’s major draws is its beaches. What better way to relax after a long day of meetings than by soaking up the rays, lounging under a beach umbrella, or feeling the warm sand and cool water beneath your toes? Visitors can enjoy a range of watersport activities, from surfing to Jet Ski and from sailing to scuba diving, at one of the five main beaches around the city. There are also hours of coastal walking paths to be traversed, offering breathtaking views of both the city and the ocean from every angle. Hiking is the most popular pastime here in Busan, and it won’t take long to see why once you step foot onto the coastal and mountain trails. And, of course, let’s not forget about the seafood. Busan has a long history of fishing and feasting on the ocean’s bounty. Those centuries of experience have led to a diverse seafood menu and a culinary mastery that makes seafood dining in Busan an experience that is not to be missed. The city also offers several scenic tributaries, including Korea’s largest river, the Nakdong river, which winds its way across the Korean Peninsula for 525 km. 008
Perhaps the most unique aspect of holding your event in Busan is that the city’s best destinations—primary convention facilities, pre-eminent hotels and accommodations, beloved tourist attractions, premium shopping, and the best leisure and nightlife the city has to offer—are all situated just 10 minutes from each other, in what we call the ‘10-minute zone.’ This area, which includes Centum City, Haeundae Beach, Gwangalli, and Marine City, has it all—maximizing the fun and productivity of even the shortest stay in Busan.
The area traces its history back to the second century, when Busan was known a Geochisan, or “rough mountain.” A royal decree in the 15th century designated Busan as the primary trading port with neighboring Japan. It has since grown into the world’s fifth busiest port and has emerged as a global hub for travelers and business people from around the world. Throughout Busan you will see the charismatic contrast of old and new, whether you are standing beneath the towering skyscrapers of Marine City or beneath the great Buddha statue at Yonggungsa Temple. Whether shopping the ultra-modern Shinsegae Department Store or the historic Jagalchi Market, this blend of history and modernity is a big part of what gives Busan her charm.
Busan has become one of the world’s top locations for staying connected 24 hours a day, with free Wi-Fi in key locations throughout the city.
