    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Songdo Skywalk, 129-4, Amnam-dong, Seo-gu, Busan South Korea

    The sky walk has drawn attention as the first of its kind in Korea, and for its long, curving trail. To date, the first section of the walk
    has been installed and measures 104 m, stretching around Geobukseom Island. When completed next February, the Songdo Sky Walk will
    set a new record as the longest ocean walk in Korea at 296 m in length and 2.3 m in width.
    The sky walk will also have a viewing platform stretching out into the water to give visitors a spectacular view of the coastline.
    Transparent tempered glass was also used in sections of the flooring for the walk, allowing for clear views of the waters below and
    giving people the true sensation of walking on water. It is positioned 5.5~8 m above sea level making it far closer to the sea than
    the Oryukdo Sky Walk, which is positioned 37 m above the shore, along a seashore cliff. Everyone will be able to enjoy the thrilling and
    exciting experience of watching blue waves under their feet.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Gamcheon Culture Village, 203, Gamnae 2-ro, Saha-gu, Busan 49368 South Korea

    Gamcheon Culture Villiage is formed by houses built in staircase-fashion on the foothills of a coastal mountain, earning this village the nickname of "Machu Picchu of Busan."

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Yongdusan Park, 37-55, Yongdusan-gil, Jung-gu, Busan 48950 South Korea

    Yongdusan Park, one of the most popular mountains in Busan
    Yongdusan in downtown Busan, is one of the 3 well-known mountains in Busan. Its old name is Songhyunsan, which means a mountain has a view of the sea through the dense fine tree forest. Later the name has changed into Yongdusan. It came from its shape, which is similar to dragon head and people thought it has a spirit to defeat enemies coming over the sea.
    On the mountain were shrine built by Japanese people during Japanese colonial role, but now are Cheokhwabi monument (the stone monument to the exclusion of foreigners from the country), Chunghontap (memorial tower for Korean war victims), 4.19 Revolution monument (the student's anti-government revolt), the statue of General Lee Sunsin(the great commander in Joseon Dynasty period(1392-1910)) and Busan tower.
    During Korea war, displaced people built houses on it even on the top, but 2 times of big fires took all them away making it bald mountain. Since then, fierce efforts to plant trees have created such beautiful park. The name of the park was once Unam park in the time of the Liberal Party’s ruling but it went back to Yungdosan park after April revolution (1960). It is a place with beautiful scenery. Especially the night landscape from Busan tower is magnificent.

    Duration: 20 minutes

The Gukje Market is one of Korea’s largest markets; each alleyway is crowded with stalls, and it connects to the Bupyeong Market, Kkangtong Market, and other smaller markets. The market stocks such a wide variety of goods, that you can find almost everything you need right here.

    Stop At: Jagalchi Market, Nampo-dong, Jung-gu, Busan South Korea

    The Jagalchi Market is Korea's largest seafood market. After the Korean War the market solidified itself as a fish market. Most of the people who sell fish are women, so the women who sell here are called 'Jagalchi Ajumma,' 'ajumma' meaning middle-aged or married women.
    This market represents Busan and is famous throughout the country. If you visit you can eat fresh raw fish right at the market. Even these days you can see women selling mackerel, sea squirts (ascidians) and whale meat on wooden boxes along the road.
