    Renowned for its trendy cosmopolitan ambience and maritime activities, Busan is a great place to immerse yourself in the culture of South Korea. Enjoy a glimpse of this with visits to the the Cultural Center for a beautiful performance, an exploration of Yongdusan Park and by walking side-by-side with the locals at their famous fish market.

    From the pier, it's a brief drive to the Cultural Center to experience the art and beauty of the Korean traditional dance. This unique performance is one of the main attractions of Korea. Traditional Korean music and dance are sophisticated forms that embrace the interplay of hung and mot-form and spirit. The performance includes a selection of regional dances featuring dancers in traditional costume.

    Next, you will visit Yongdusan Park. The park is a favorite relaxation place for the citizens of Busan and is a wonderful back-drop for many photo opportunities. Here, you can find 70 different species of trees and view the Busan Tower. The tower was built in 1973 and stands close to 400 feet above the Pusan landscape. Also at Yongdusan is the statue of General Lee Sunsin who was a great commander in Joseon Dynasty period (1392-1910).

    Afterwards, travel to the Jagalchi Fish Market which is famous throughout the country and is a great representation of Busan. The Jagalchi Fish Market is Korea's largest seafood market and is where you can see the lifestyle of the indigenous Busan natives. After the Korean War, the market solidified itself as a fish market. Most of the people who sell fish are Jagalchi Ajumma; 'ajumma' meaning middle-aged or married women.

    At the conclusion of your tour, you will have the option of exploring the downtown area on your own or returning straight to the pier.

    Please note: This tour includes approximately 90-minutes of easy walking/standing.Jagalchi Fish Market has some wet tile surfaces and narrow aisles to negotiate. The tour is available to wheelchair guests who have a collapsible wheelchair, are able to make their own way on and off the coach and have an able-bodied companion to assist them.
