Start the day with a visit to Haedong Yonggungsa Temple, which is situated on the coast of the north eastern portion of Busan. This superb attraction offers visitors the rare find of a temple along the shore line since most temples in Korea are located in the mountains. Haedong Yonggungsa Temple was first built in 1376 by the great Buddhist teacher known as Naong during the Goryeo Dynasty.

Next head back to the city and to Centum City Spa Land, equipped with all the benefits of a traditional Korean spa, located in Shinsegae Centum City in Haeundae, Busan. Spa Land consists of 22 spas fed by two different kinds of all natural spring water pumped up from 1,000 meters underground, 13 distinctively themed jjimjilbang and saunas, and an open air foot spa. Your guide will leave you to enjoy the spa facilities so please bring with you a swim suit and towels can be hired there.

Now its time to hit the movies at BIFF, Busan’s modern movie district, which was originally little more than a pair of cinemas that were built following Korea’s liberation from Japanese colonial rule over half a century ago. However, major renovations took place ahead of the first Busan International Film Festival (BIFF), and the newly transformed district was named BIFF Square on August 14, 1996. Having been remade into a cultural tourist attraction promoting the advancement of Korea’s film industry, BIFF Square has contributed to Busan’s newfound status as an international cultural tourist city. The 428 meter long street stretching from the Buyeong Theatre in Nampo dong to the overpass in Chungmu dong was divided into “Star Street” and “Festival Street,” and on the eve of the festival each year the “BIFF Square Ground Opening” is held on the street. During the ceremony, events such as the hand printing of famous celebrities and Nunggot Jeomdeung (snow flower lighting) take place. A district such as BIFF Square, crowded with first run theatres in a city is rare not only in Asia but Europe as well, and for this reason it holds great potential. In recent years, the square has grown into a more complex area, featuring not only movie theatres but also shops and leisure facilities, attracting growing numbers of young visitors and tourists.

Time for lunch at Magnate. This is a cafe owned by BTS Jimin’s dad and since its opening, it has become a holy place for ARMY, or anyone interested in K-pop. Please note lunch is not included in the price and will be at your own expense.

Finish up the day at Busan Cinema Centre, which is a film culture complex showing performances and films across all genres. The facility is comprised of large and small theatres, cinematech, sky theatre, indie plus, as well as the 4,000 is comprised of large and small theatres, cinematech, sky theatre, as well as the 4,000 seat outdoor seat outdoor theatre which serves as the venue for the opening and closing ceremonies of Busan International Film Festival.
