Busan is currently the fifth busiest seaport in the world.
Connected to all the major cities of South Korea as well as with rest of the world.
Busan is located on the Southeastern tip of the Korean Peninsula. It is located right next to the sea, which determined the development of the whole city itself.
Located on the Southeasternmost tip of the Korean Peninsula, Busan has a humid subtropical climate (Köppen climate classification Cfa). Extremely high or low temperatures are rare. May to July, Late Springs and Early Summers, are usually cooler than inland region because of the ocean effect. Late Summer and Early Autumn, August and September, are generally hot and humid and the city may experience typhoons at that time. On September 15, 1959, Super Typhoon Sarah passed by the coast of the city and caused catastrophic effect. October and November are generally the most comfortable, with clear skies and pleasant temperatures. Winters are cold and dry with high winds, but much milder than other parts of Korea except Jeju-do and several island of the southern coast. Busan and the nearby area is the least snowiest region of Korea due to its location. However, even a little accumulation of snow can effectively shut down this seaport city because of the hilly terrain and unfamiliarity of motorists with driving on snow.
Busan is the largest port city in South Korea. With a population of about 3.65 million, Busan is also South Korea''s second largest metropolis, after Seoul. The city is located on the Southeasternmost tip of the Korean Peninsula and faces the Korea Strait. The most densely built up areas of the city are situated in a number of narrow valleys between the Nakdong River and Suyeong River, with mountains separating some of the various districts. The Busan metropolitan area is divided into into 15 major districts and a single county.
