Busan (부산) with a population of 3.8 million is South Korea's second largest city and principal port. It's also the primary port for ferries to Japan and a gateway to the Hallyeo Maritime National Park and surrounding islands. The famous Jagalchi fish markets is one of Busan's top attractions and an excellent place to sample some of the multitude of marine products for sale.
Busan has mild winters compared to much of the country, averaging between 6 and 9 degrees Celsius during the day and slightly below zero at night, but dropping as low as -14 degrees sometimes. Winters are relatively dry. Summers are tropical with hot and humid conditions. Temperatures average between 24 and 29 degrees from June to September with nights around or above 20 degrees. This is also the wet season with July topping at almost 300 mm of rain. The best times obviously are spring and autumn with much less rain and agreeable temperatures.
