Interesting part of Busan with many nice restaurants and displays. So many restaurants and shops to choose from. Not far from Busan station and well worth a visit if you are in the area. Visited here with my partner in July 2014 and the Chinese...More

We saw the sign for China Town while we stood in the Busan Train Station Plaza, so we went. It was before lunch and there weren't many people around and some stores were not open. Nevertheless we enjoyed the old Korean architecture with Chinese flair,...More

The sign from the subway says this is shopping area for foreigners. Which ended up to be China town. Which is a street that's quiet even on a Saturday night. Resturant's don't look great. Last thing you want to see in Korea....

Its a totally different atmosphere when I stepped in here; there are plenty of sleazy bars and karaoke joints among the Chinese and ex USSR countries restaurants. Chinese food appears expensive too. I guess it will just be a one time exploratory trip here for...More

We’ve been to many Chinatowns and most are not great. The best perhaps is in San Francisco. Even the small street in LA that is Chinatown is barely sufficient to be called a Chinatown, much less than the Chinatown in Busan. Nonetheless, we saw it...More

It's a pretty small Chinatown, but it's very easy to reach, basically right in front of the train station. Quite a lot of restaurants and shops,like in any Chinatown.

Don't recommend to come here, especially alone, especially if you're a woman. There are a lot of drunk Russians, South East Asian hookers, and -stan gangs. But a nice thing about this place is that you can buy a good bread in Russian stores and...More
