The largest port city in South Korea, Busan is known for its beaches, mountains and temples. It is called the summer capital of Korea since it attracts tourists from all over the country to its six beaches. The country’s largest beach, Haeundae, is 40 mins away from central Busan and has luxury hotels, a carnival boardwalk and the Sea Life Aquarium. Beomeosa Temple, a Buddhist shrine founded in 678 A.D., is at the base of Geumjeong Mountain, which has hiking trails.
