Gyeongju National Museum is loved by visitors and residents alike as it houses numerous historical and cultural artifacts of the Silla Dynasty (57 BC - AD 935).

Daereungwon Tomb complex in Gyeongju holds 23 tombs that are found inside of large mounds. The complex is beautiful with its rolling mounds and gardens, but the real treat can be found inside the tombs.

Jagalchi Market, located on the shoreside road in Busan's Jung-gu, is Korea's largest seafood market, selling both live and dried fish.

Gukje Market is one of Korea’s largest markets. Following the Korean War, refugees who fled to Busan set up stalls in order to make a living, and this was the beginning of the Gukje Market (gukje meaning "international" in Korean).

DAY 3
Busan
(09:30-21:30)
Meet a guide at hotel lobby → Oryukdo Island (take a sightseeing ferry) → Shinsegae Centum City (Spa land) → Back to hotel and take a rest → Kkangtong night market → Night view of Gwangalli (Busan Gwangandaegyo Bridge) → Back to hotel

Oryukdo Island is off the southern coast of Busan, and depending on the day and the tide, may appear to be five islands or six islands, hence its name ('o' meaning five and 'yuk' meaning six in Korean). Since many ships coming to Busan Port pass by Oryukdo Island, it serves as a symbol of Busan's cultural heritage as well.

Shinsegae Centum City is registered in the Guinness World Records as the largest shopping complex in the world. Visitors can also enjoy numerous entertainment options in the complex.

Kkangtong Market opens in the day, but more people visit in the evening, leading some to call this a night market. The market is famous for selling unique, delicious street foods at inexpensive prices. Some of the more unusual street foods for Korea include Scotch eggs, hardboiled eggs wrapped in sausage and bacon before frying; French fries over sausage and cheese, all drenched in sauce; soup served in a bread bowl similar to pane pasta; and steamed corn so addictive it's earned the nickname "narcotic corn." All these foods are sold for just 3,000 to 5,000 won.
