Our Japan cruise included Busan - we had no idea what to expect but hired Frank based on very good reviews. We were not disappointed - the tour was outstanding and he was one of the best tour guides we’ve engaged anywhere in the world,...More

This place was never on my must see list but now that I have spent a couple of days here I want to come back for more. The markets and streets are a hive of activity, people are friendly but don’t expect much English. This...More

Despite what you may have heard, this is an incredible stop. Make it a point to get off the ship! Busan is really special. The city is huge--5.5 million population--and has some of the most beautiful new structures you will see ANYWHERE! The cruise terminal...More

As we entered Busan with a cruise ship we had nice views of the port and its modern buildings. The new cruiseport is hypermodern and airy and offers free wifi. Immigration and customs are well-and modern-equipped and formalities are simple and smooth.

Efficient welcome at the cruise terminal . Well organised transfer to waiting coaches although i was late due to huge long slow queue at the money exchange. Modern overhead spiral motorway soon gets you out of town.

I'm not sure what the old port was like but this one is pretty nice. We stopped here on our Princess cruise in March. Very modern facilities and tons of space for all the buses that picked us up.

This port is very modern and busy... and clean! We caught the hydrafoil from here to Fukuoka and it was a breeze going through immigration. You will have to pay an exit fee as well as a facility fee too.

We didn't know what to expect of Busan, as we went on a day tour whilst on a cruise around Japan which visited South Korea as well. The level of activity in new buildings, freeways and other infrastructure is probably the most surprising of any...More

The new port in Busan where the larger cruise ships dock is a vast improvement over the previous port. Next to the docked ship is a small Customs and Immigration building that has a shopping area plus free Wi-Fi. Each time we've been there, a...More
