Hello there, can i know if we can travel to seoul instead? im living in busan for few mths..this will be great...thanks!

Hi Khamun.C,

I'm afraid the trip is to explore Busan hence you must take the bus from Seoul to Busan and then return to Seoul. Not the other way around.

zarina, i was wondering sempat ke nak tour Busan within the 1.5 hours between the arrival time and the departure time tu...any interesting places that we can go which are closer to the drop&pickup point tu...

Hi Azra,

2 hours, not much that you can do maybe to Busan tower. or just the 40 gyedan.

I definitely recommend Taejongdae - the temple beside the sea. But it's quite far way and also Gwangalli beach.

Pardon the mistake, it should be Yonggungsa not Taejongdae.
