Gyeongsangnam-do
경상남도
South Gyeongsang province is a study in contrasts. Travellers looking for big-city action
are unlikely to go away disappointed as Busan is full of interesting restaurants, thousands
of places to drink and enough cultural assets to fill a few days of exploring. It’s the country’s second-largest city and one of the world’s busiest container ports, but Busan is not
a high-energy Asian megacity. It is evolving into an interesting place thanks to a number
of ongoing and proposed megaprojects. Chief among these is Lotte World 2, a 107-storey
tower currently under construction in slightly dilapidated Nampodong.
The goal of turning Busan into Korea’s movie capital took a great leap forward when the
city government announced plans to build MGM Studio City, an amusement park with studio
sets and a film academy in conjunction with US media giant Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. With the
closure of the US military installation at Camp Hialeah, the city is left with a difficult question:
what to do with a large, valuable tract of land that’s 10 minutes on foot from Seomyeon?
While developers are busy rearranging the urban landscape, change comes slowly in the
towns and fishing villages dotting the expansive countryside. Adventurous travellers willing
to hop on a bus and explore will be rewarded with pristine islands, scenic mountains and
lush rice paddies. While wandering the streets of a quiet village, don’t be surprised if a local
resident asks if you need help and then insists that you join his or her co-workers for dinner. Find yourself lost on the back roads? Stick your thumb out and you might be surprised
to learn that hitchhiking works here. Few people speak English, but all you really need to
succeed is a warm smile, patience and the ability to read body language.
