    Busan Metropolitan City, a bustling city of approximately 3.6 million residents, is located on the southeastern tip of the Korean peninsula. The natural environment of Busan is a perfect example of harmony between

    mountains, rivers and sea. Its geography includes a coastline with superb beaches and scenic cliffs, mountains

    which provide excellent hiking and extraordinary views, and hot springs scattered throughout the city. Busan

    enjoys four distinct seasons and a temperate climate that never gets too hot or too cold.

    Busan is the second largest city in Korea. Its deep harbor and gentle tides have allowed it to grow into the largest

    container handling port in the country and the fifth largest in the world. The citys natural endowments and rich

    history have resulted in Busans increasing reputation as a world class city of tourism and culture, and it is also

    becoming renowned as an international convention destination.
