Getting to Centum City Busan

When in Busan City as a traveler, I would rather walk or hike to reach places I want to see and explore. Well, given that me, or you, have plenty of time to spare hiking.

Still, I suggest that you do that because Busan City is very safe, clean, and is relatively flat with either concrete or asphalted roads and trails.
