What our students said about Busan


Rating: 3/5

If you are interested in history, Busan is the right place for you. Gyeongju is not far away and you can take great day trips there (self-organized or with a tour). There is also a lot to see in Busan itself and the sea is right on your doorstep.


Rating: 5/5

I think I was able to stay in the best season. The weather was mild and I was able to see cherry blossoms in full bloom.
