Busan offers beaches in abundance and soaking up the sun is the main form of recreation here. Other water sports like jet-skiing, parasailing and yachting are popular and the rocky islands off shore make for popular daytrips on chartered boats.
Shopping is a big deal in Busan too, and many visitors find that by the time they've explored the retail haven of downtown Busan they are in need of popcorn and a movie in one of the city's air-conditioned multiplex cinemas.
However, Busan is a university city and there is a major market for foreign English teachers here. Wherever college students and foreign English students come together, vibrant nightlife is bound to result and the bar scene of Busan is really a lot of fun.
Clubs and Bars
The area around Kyungsung University is surrounded by literally thousands of bars, big and small. The downtown area of Busan happily competes with the university as an Olympian drinking center. Places open late, and there are so many pubs, bars and clubs in Busan that competition keeps prices amazingly low.
Beaches are what Busan is known for. There are seven major beaches in town and the main two are Haeundae Beach, with its upscale hotels and classy bars, and Gwangalli, where the alternative set mix with laidback students and a very young market.
