Whatever your expectations, your tastes of Busan food will deliver. And I promise that when you get home, you are going to try to make those hotteoks!

A favorite experiences in Busan are rolled into this tour. The city itself is crowded and crazy and congested and your introduction to the city will take place while driving to a major highlight of most of the Asian cities, the fish market. But this one is unusual, as the first floor seems to offer much of what you can find in most seaport cities. Above you though sits a lovely local dining experience and a few of the market merchants have selected to have restaurant space so your fish will be the most fresh possible.

Your guide will help you determine the best option for you. Whether you want sushi, sashimi, fish soup, steamed lobster - after you take a walk through the market you can discuss your options. With assistance you will make your selection and then follow your guide to the second floor.

At first you may find yourself the spectacle as you will most likely be the only northerners here, but that is the fun of travel and soon everyone will be smiling at your willingness to learn the ways of the South Korean culinary culture.

Regardless of what you choose, a full lunch will appear in a glorious way. Beers, soft drinks, water are available and your guide will help you access them. Enjoy it all before returning to the first floor and exiting this market, only to find yourself walking through the Kukje Market. In the midst of this walk, you will see lines formed at kiosks serving a simple but delectable treat.

The line moves quickly as little sweet pancakes are made and filled with a cinnamon sunflower seed mixture, popped into a cup and while warm, devoured during your walk. You will dream of these long after your visit.

To get an overview of this city, which extends far beyond your vision, you will take the elevator up the Busan Tower for a panoramic view.

This short visit will be more memorable than most because you will feel like you participated in a new culture rather than viewing it while passing through!
