Staying 1 night in Busan will be total waste even for 2 nights. If I were you, I will concentrate on either Busan or Jeju to explore properly. Visit the temple in Busan called Beomeosa, very scenic. Catch the orange subway line and you will see many people getting off at this station. Just follow the people with hiking gears and catch the bus to the temple, iirc bus #90. Or you can walk up which I did. ■ 선찰대본산 범어사 ■.. and ■ 선찰대본산 범어사 ■..

Make sure to come with a small backpack with water & tidbits at least. You also can buy & bring for lunch like gimbap or breads.

I think this is the perfect mode of transportation around the 3 areas. Alternatively, you may consider overnight ferry from Jeju to Busan if you want to save some money.

The sight of Hae-dong-yong-kung-sa is breath taking and it is worth a visit despite the transportation hassle. When you are in Busan, not to miss the Pusan International Film Festival (PIFF) area and nampo-dong for eating and shopping. There is an international market selling all stuff under the sun. Hit south and you will reach the renowned fish market for cheap sashimi.

Busan has much to offer and I will need 5 days or more to fully explore it.
