Busan 부산;釜山 (also Pusan, population 3.9 million) is a harbor city in the south-east of the Republic of Korea (South Korea). The densely populated city is situated in the narrow Nakdong River[?] valley, with mountains acting as a check on expansion to either the east or west.

This city is the host city of 2002 Asian Games[?]. Kumjung Mountain to the west is a popular weekend hiking spot for Pusan residents. Tourist hotels and a carnival boardwalk line the Haeundai Beach district. To the north, the neighborhoods around Pusan National University sport student cafes, bars, and open air noodle restaurants. Chalgalchi Market (near the very active port) is an area of narrow street stalls and is well known for its fish market.
