Busan

Something seems fishy about this place.......

sunny 23 °C

Busan is Korea’s second largest city with about 4 million people. It is the main port for international cargo, as well as the passenger ferries to Japan and Jeju Island. They have amazing seafood so it is easy to see why they are famous for it. Also the beaches there are incredible! With the beaches and the weather around the beach, it gives the city more of nightlife. We are not really nightlife people but you just have to get out and enjoy it….as well as the fish smell that never seems to leave your nose. Because of the location of this city, it has a mix of both mountains and ocean. What an incredible sight!

Busan is where the record was set for the world's largest department store - Shinsegae Centum City. Hmmm, should we go to this mall? In the fairness of travel research we almost have to go. Plus, um, we're three girls traveling around and one of the largest malls in the world is right here?! Ah, yeah, of course we're going!!!

Centum City was built on the old airport site (only place big enough I imagine) with 14 floors above ground and 4 below ground. Now that is one big building! Inside there are a ton of luxury stores, some of which cannot be found in our mall for sure. We looked and browsed, then looked and browsed some more. Thankfully we all kept an eye on our bottom lines and the realization we have to carry whatever we buy on our backs so looking is all we did.

Calling it a city is very appropriate. By 3 pm we were all exhausted so made the decision to spend the rest of the day at the beach. Good thing it was later in the day so I didn’t look like a lobster by the end of it. However, I did get a wonderful Rudolf nose. Sometimes it’s so hard being a fair skinned beauty. That is how we enjoyed our day in Busan.

Too soon it was time to head to the ferry to Jeju...
