The country's second city, Busan has often been referred to as South Korea's summer capital.
Visit Haedong Yonggung Temple and Beomeosa Temple for their historical value. Gamcheon Culture Village and Shinsegae Gallery are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Change things up with these side-trips from Busan: Oedo Botania (in Geoje) and Ulsan Theme Botanic Garden (in Ulsan). There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Haeundae Beach, hunt for treasures at Jagalchi Market, see the interesting displays at Busan Museum, and head outdoors with Gwangalli Beach.

Atlanta, USA to Busan is an approximately 20-hour flight. The time zone changes from Eastern Standard Time (EST) to Korean Standard Time (KST), which is usually a 14 hour difference. When traveling from Atlanta in June, plan for slightly colder days and about the same nights in Busan: temperatures range from °F by day to °F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Thu) so you can travel to Seoul.

One of east Asia's major cultural and financial centers, Seoul boasts five World Heritage Sites and a huge selection of museums, temples, shrines, palaces, parks, gardens, and glass-and-steel skyscrapers.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Myeongdong Shopping Street and Creative Life Store KEY. Visiting Cheonggyecheon Stream and Bukhansan National Park will get you outdoors. Venture out of the city with trips to Korea National Arboretum (in Pocheon), Suwon (Hwaseong Fortress & Dongbukgongsimdon) and DMZ Haemaru Village (in Paju). Plan for a day of cool, family-friendly fun on the 26th (Fri) at Icheon Termeden. The adventure continues: take an in-depth tour of Gyeongbokgung Palace, take in nature's colorful creations at Changdeokgung Palace, take a stroll through Bukchon Hanok Village, and stop by Insadong.
