Dynamic Busan-- self-proclaimed -- is a F-U-N city of 3+ million (the entire population of Alberta, Canada, by the way!). It seemed we spent much of our time ins subways, or up top amidst traffic in cabs and buses. I highly recommend you take subways as much as possible. We also spent roughly 25% of vaca money on transportation costs!
However, arriving on the first day of 설날 Seollal -the Korean Lunar New Year, (spelling is debatable!) http://english.visitkorea.or.kr/enu/SI/SI_EN_3_6.jsp?cid=941952, everything is closed, Busan is near a Ghost Town. Good for us! We spent day one lost on the subways, going in circles (literally), while trying to get to a nearby mountain for a hike. We ended up walking around Haeundae Beach and the ocean boardwalk, having a very confusing lunch of 파전 paejon and tofu soup, and ended up at a very bad Mexican restaurant later that night.
Our song is 실례합니다 (Shillehamnedah), which means "excuse me" in Korean, Lara started it, and so it's become a K-Pop hit (ha ha, not really). We decided to start a flash mob, but then since it was only us, well, it was a very small flash mob!
...is now LIVE!
