For some seaside sights, head to Busan, Korea’s second-largest city and busiest port. Enjoy the sand and surf in the suburb of Haeundae, a lively beachfront town boasting great food and energetic nightlife.

Destinations / Asia

Known for its beaches, mountains and temples, visiting Busan can be cheaper than many would think. It is easy to get to and explore while sticking to your budget.


Getting There

There aren’t many flights that fly directly to Busan, so look for flights with short layovers. Flights can range $800–1,500 depending on where your departure gateway. Flights out of JFK will cost more than $1,000, but flying from the West Coast will give you flights for less than $1,000.


Getting Around

Taking the metro in Busan is the most economical way to explore the city. It runs through almost all of the tourist destinations and the fare is cheap. Announcements are made in Korean, English, Japanese and Chinese.


Another way to get around is the bike share system that runs 9 a.m.–6 p.m., and is free for foreigners with a passport, ID card and accommodations voucher. Biking can be dangerous in Busan, but in the Haeundae District there are dedicated bike lanes that are safe to use.


Where to Stay

Finding a hotel that is budget friendly, but doesn’t skimp on quality isn’t hard when you stay at Lion Hotel. The budget-friendly rooms are super spacious, with large soaker bathtubs and rain showers for a relaxing stay in the heart of the city. Room rates start at just $41 a night.

European Commission Outlines Plan to Reopen Europe

People need a “chance to get some well-needed rest, relaxation and fresh air.” This is a sentiment we all likely share, as does the European Commission, the executive branch of the European Union. The EC included that phrase when it released its plan to help reopen Europe following the COVID-19 global pandemic. While most EU borders remain closed to international travel until at least mid-June, the EC’s plan starts with inter-Europe travel, and are non-binding recommendations and guidelines. European countries still have the final decision, so travelers are advised to check the restrictions of the countries they plan to visit. According to the EC, “blanket restrictions of free movement are replaced by targeted measures.”
