Busan Travel Guide

Safety and Precautions

Busan is a safe and friendly city with low crime rates. You may encounter begging in the subway system but this is rare. Across from Busan Station is an area marked the "Shopping Area for Foreigners." As the name suggests, it's something of a tourist trap and it becomes a little seedy after dark. English is not widely spoken so have your hotel's address written down in Korean for emergencies (and for taxi drivers).
