Gyeongju-Busan-Seoul – Taking the Busan City Tour bus

8 May 2012

The plan for Day 6 of our vacation is to explore the attractions in the city of Busan. Busan is a large city and we have to pick which are the places of interest to visit in one day.

The places planned for today includes the following

1. Taejongdae

2. Lunch at Jagalchi Fish Market. Including a visit to the harbour docks and watch the fishing boats being unloaded

3. BIFF Square and Shopping around the Namp'o-dong area.

We decided to book the Busan City Tour as a convenient means of transport. There are various tour routes and the Tanjongdae Tour route was the most suitable one for us. This is a hop-on hop-off service that would bring us to above places that we wanted to visit. The departure point is near the Busan Metro Station, a few stops away from our hotel along the Line Busan Metro or Subway system.

The Tanjongdae Tour route will cover the following stops:

  • Busan Station
  • Passenger Ferry Terminal
  • 75 Square
  • Taejongdae
  • Internation Cruise Terminal
  • Namhang Bridge
  • Songdo Beach
  • BIFF Square/Jagalchi Market
  • Busan Station

The cost is 10,000 KRW per person and we bought the tickets direct from the bus driver when we bought the bus although it could also be bought through phone reservation system. We were given a brochure showing the arrival timings at each stop. The frequency of the bus is every 30 minutes.

The ticket for the Tanjongdae Route also include the Haeundae Tour route for the same day. So, if time permits, one can potentially squeeze in a visit to one or two places on the Haeundae route.
