While visiting Korea this winter, we got away from the craziness of Seoul to visit Busan. Busan is the second largest city in South Korea and is infamous for its fresh seafood and raw fish cuisine. Countless restaurants and small shops offer live fish that customers can pick for themselves to be served on a plate within minutes.
Haeundae, located in the eastern part of Busan, is the waterfront district. Much of the Korean population flocks to this area for vacation once summertime hits. Despite my visit being during the middle of winter, the area by the water offered a soft warmth and break from the hurried busyness of Seoul proper.
