My mom and I love to travel. Our next destination was Busan in South Korea. We flew with Cebu Pacific Air. Cebu Pacific Air offers low fare for its destination. Our trip cost Php 3,000 only. Very cheap! HAHAHA! 🙂 …Check their low fares here.

Busan is the second largest city in South Korea. The city is famous for its seafood and beaches. Honestly, I don’t have any idea about the city. All I know is they have a cool weather which is I like. We took the city tour bus which you can travel the city in just one ticket.

It costs Php 450

You can use this in Haeundae and Taejongdae Tour in just one ticket.Very Affordable, right?

The bus has a LCD TV gives the tourist information. Sosyal! HAHAHA!

Individual TV screens installed on every seat provide visitors with information about the stops along the way in a presentation of image, video clips, animation, and more! For international travelers, audio services are offered in English, Japanese, and Chinese.

I was able to take a picture in the bus with umbrella. It's raining that time. Wrong timing.

Information

The public transportation system allows visitors to move around the city quickly and comfortably; but for a more convenient and all-inclusive tour of this unique seaside city, travelers can opt for the Busan City Tour offered by the Busan City Government. The Busan City Tour is comprised of a variety of one-day courses that each center on a different theme. Not only can travelers visit many of Busan’s major attractions and sights (Haeundae Beach, Taejongdae Resort Park, BEXCO, Jagalchi Market, Dalmaji-gil Road, etc.), they can also get a chance to visit places that are best suited to their own interests. Among the courses is a course that takes travelers around the coastal region; another goes to the downtown area and shopping districts; another one to the natural and ecological sites, and one to that shows visitors the area’s beautiful nighttime views. Each tour leaves from Busan Station and operates on a fixed schedule. By purchasing a single all-day ticket, travelers can get on and off the bus at will throughout the day.
