Wow, that's a lot of places to cover, but if i go ard mid Nov, won't it be too cold to go to the beach? Not sure about the markets as well, my kids don't really enjoy wet market in Singapore due to the smell...maybe drop by one, just for exposure.
thanks for the recommendations, will do some homework before i plan the itinerary.

If your kids don't like to walk either, then drop Busan!

Haedong Yonggung Temple is really nice. Give it 1/2 to a day.

Oryukdo Skywalk and Songdo Skywalk. Between the 2, I'll take Oryukdo Skywalk. Can hike around the area too.

From Songdo Skywalk, there's a cable car to the Amnam Park. There's a costal walk to the Amnan Park too.

Gamcheon Culture Village, the most half a day (4 hours). We were there for less than 2 hours.

BIFF Square, Jagalchi Fish Market, Yongdusan Park (Busan Tower), can be done in half a day or less, depending on how much time you spend at each. An hour at BIFF Square, 1/2 and hour at Jagalchi Fish Market (since your kids don't like the wet market) and Yongdusan Park, probably 1/2 an hour. The Park is just a park. Unless your kids are going to run around the park or play there, there's nothing much to do there.

Hi dilphinus

my kids are fine with walking and exploring, its a new place for them, just not too sure on the fish market, might skip that if they dont want to....rest of place, seems interesting to explore. Let me try work out the itinerary. Are the locations accessible via public transport, was wondering would it be better to book klook one day trip for some locations, any advise?
Am not so good with buses, always get confused.

Super easy for me. My mum finds it difficult though. Yeah, so it might be difficult for you.

I've seen the prices at Klook. Totally not worth it.

Went Busan in June for Seoul -> Busan -> Jeju trip. Regret staying there for 2 nights. If you are going Jeju island, can kind of skip Busan, both are about sea view, except Jeju sea view is much nicer. Seafood is better in Jeju as well. Busan is more famous for their pork soup if you like that. Personally, I think one night in Busan is more than enough. My wife, who's Korean, even told me Busan is boring and recommended 1 night, should've listened...

Long overdue liao. Flying Silkair to busan is horrible since it is a 6 hours flight on a narrow body aircraft without iFE

Also shows that Busan is popular with Singaporeans while other cities like Darwin, Cairns, Hiroshima are not popular so just dump them to Silkair

Can't wait to travel to Busan by SQ.
Always hesitated cos of the small Silkair aircraft.
Hopefully SQ will take over the Hiroshima route too.
