Busan Shopping

Fodor's Review

In the streets running from Nampo-dong Station to Jagalchi Station and PIFF (Pusan International Film Festival) Square, you'll find hundreds of shops aimed at upwardly mobile twenty-somethings and students. Places to look out for include the major Korean cosmetics chain "The Face Shop" and Japanese discount chain "Daiso." Christmas shopping fever hits Nampo-dong in December with many couples coming out in matching outfits to view the elaborate lighting displays. However it is in October that the area really comes to life with many film festival events being centered around BIFF Square. You can grab a "Hotteok" pancake filled with cinnamon and peanuts from a street vendor in the square; it's only W900 so drop W1000 in the bucket, grab your change and enjoy. Nampo-dong or Jagalchi Stations.
