In Busan there are a whole range of unique markets to visit. The markets have been running for hundreds of years and Busan being a port city attracted a lot of foreign buyers. The markets expanded greatly during the Korean War as Busan was one of the few cities that was not invaded or destroyed. There was a huge influx of refugees during this time and the markets were very busy with people buying the essentials. Nowadays in Busan the markets cater to electronics, tools, clothing, food, alcohol and just about anything you can think of.
