When travelling to South Korea, most people only have Seoul in mind; a place where you can get your fill of street snacks, stay caffeinated all day with ample coffee and cafes, then stay up all night with an eclectic nightlife, shop till you drop, and get a good dose of history and culture. So, yeah, Seoul is great, but there’s also other cities in South Korea that are worth a visit. One of these cities is Busan, located in the South Eastern tip of the country. Busan is a much more quiet, yet very vibrant city in comparison to Seoul. There are many things to do in Busan, including taking a trip up to the Busan Tower for some excellent aerial views of the city.
Observation towers are a pretty big tourist attraction in any large city around the world, so you might as well get with it (in case you haven’t already) and check out the Seoul Tower perched up on Namsan Mountain, the highest point in Seoul, for some 360° views of the city. Though Seoul doesn’t have as large and recognizable of a cityscape as some other cities (think London, Hong Kong, Toronto..), it is still neat to see the city from 236m up!
