Long weekend here, and me and "J" decided to hit the beaches and frolick in the sun and sand in Pusan for it!! Good idea it was!! Busan or "Pusan" as it was once upon a time called, is the second largest city in South Korea, of approx 7 million in population. It is indeed a beautiful city!! With the water, and the beach ( not a huge one but still fun ) and the amazing restaurants, it was indeed a much needed break away from the city and work I needed.
Downfalls of Busan, if you're planning on and or want to go, the nightlife for sure. I mean, don't get me wrong, this weekend was by far the best weekend to have gone to Busan, due to it being a long weekend. BUT that being said, it also meant that EVERY foreigner in South Korea had taken the same trip we had and went out to Busan!! It was FILLED with foreigners, perhaps a 3:1 ration between foreigners and Koreans!! Not really my favorite part either, felt like I was back in Vancouver! Crazy I tell ya. Over all it was a good time though. Short but sweet. But back to the downfall, the nightlife compared to Seoul is mediocre for sure. Seoul there is more things to do in a span of 3 hours than I have seen anywhere in my life. An abundance of clubs to choose from, whether you're ballering it up at the club, being the middle man and or you're just completly broke ass, there is like at least 500 places to go that you would have an amazzzzing time at!!
Busan, meh not so much. I've seen better. Definitely don't go there to party in clubs and or for the music in clubs!! Go for some great patio times, and of course beach bum drinking!!!
