After pickup from the Busan port by your private guide and driver, head to the Buddhist mountain temple of Beomeosa (Temple of the Nirvana Fish) dating back from the 7th century. One of Busan’s most scenic spots, Beomeosa showcases traditional Korean Buddhist architectural style. Starting off from the Main Hall to admire excellent craftsmanship, venture into Three Story Stone Pagoda, and then Stone Lamp, both of which were parts of the original temple.

Continue on to the UN Memorial Cemetery, the only United Nations cemetery in the world where 2,300 soldiers of 16 Korean War allies died in the Korean War (1950-53). Then, transfer to Busan Modern History Museum, which documents the history of the island from the 19th century to the present. Later, visit Jagalchi Fish Market, Korea’s largest fish market. See a wide range of seafood and dried fish on display, together with female vendors in their aprons cleaning after their stalls.

After that, explore Busan Cinema Center, an architectural feast for the eye and the million-dollar venue for the Busan International Film Festival. Spectacularly illuminated at night, it houses the country’s largest screen in its outdoor cinema, a 1000-seat indoor theater, and other smaller film venues.

Complete the tour with a visit to Yongdusan Park, located in the heart of Busan. Stroll in the park to see various monuments honoring war victories and military heroes. As the sun begins to set, return to the port in good time for your cruise departure.
