South Korea

The 5 best cheap hotels in Busan

by Paul Stafford  |  Published January 18, 2018

Although usually overlooked by visitors to South Korea in favour of Seoul, Busan is a wonderful city with a unique brand of Korean urban culture and closer ties to neighbouring Japan. As a seafront city, it also has stretches of sandy beach and good excursions to islands like Geoje-do.

Busan is spread out and connected by a good metro. Haeundae (beaches) to the east, Nampodong (shopping) to the south and Seomyeon (city centre) to the north all have something to offer tourists and are the best spots to find cheap hotels in great locations. We also factor in other aspects of good hotel stays such as the amenities and cleanliness to bring our list of the best five to you. Assa!
