Busan + Seoul or just Seoul

Jump to last reply

This fall, I have the opportunity to join my husband in South Korea, where he will be attending a conference in Busan. Because his flight will be arranged by his employer, a lot of logistical and financial considerations have to be worked out, but I have a general question to get me started planning just in case. I could pay about the same, but have much longer travel, to meet him in Busan, where I would recover from the flight and spend a the last 2-3 days of his conference before we spend a long weekend in Seoul. Alternatively, I could fly direct and meet him in Seoul. Either way, this trip will probably only be about a week, so I am not sure yet if it is worth the expense, but it is tempting for the free hotel and the opportunity. On our vacations, we typically stay in small European towns, not major Asian cities. What would you shoot for in my situation? Do I gain that much by visiting Busan, or would you just go for the wow factor and easier travel of Seoul? Thanks for any input now, and I'll be back with specific questions as the trip unfolds.
