It has been a while since we last visited Busan and Jeju, and this time we’re back with Korea Tourism Organisation! 🥳 Since the pandemic, plenty of new attractions have opened up, so we were excited to be back. These two cities are only an hour apart by plane, so if you’re considering a multi-city trip in Korea, add Busan and Jeju to your travel plans! 😍Follow us on Telegram for the latest updates: https://bit.ly/3LnFN1From seaside attractions and fresh seafood in Busan to healing experiences with nature and IG-worthy cafes in Jeju, this Muslim-friendly itinerary* will include all of the activities we did and loved! 🥰*As some of the websites that we link in this article are in Korean, we recommend using the Google Chrome browser on desktop to enable its translation function.

Pre-trip Information

FlightWe took the first-ever direct flight from Singapore to Busan (since the pandemic) via Jeju Air! To ensure we could spend our first day to the fullest, we boarded a red-eye flight and landed in Busan in the early morning 🤩Entry requirements
From pre-departure ART/PCR tests to prepping your Q Code, this article we prepared is all you need to know before travelling to Korea. However, with restrictions constantly changing, it’s best to check the safety guidelines listed on the KTO website.😌

Wifi 

As we explored Korea for a week, we used KKDay’s 10-day SIM card, which provides data up to 3GB daily. It was more than enough for all our photos and IG stories! 🤩Where to StayThe recommended areas to stay in Busan are Seomyeon, Nampo and Haeundae. These areas are convenient for the following reasons:
  • Seomyeon: Central location in Busan with plenty of shopping
  • Nampo: Near halal food and markets
  • Haeundae: Near nature attractions 

Day 1: Busan

Lunch at Goma Daegutang (고마대구탕)After checking into your hotel, it’s time for food! Daegutang, or cod fish stew, is a warm and refreshing dish, fit for the first meal in Busan 😋 Served with radish and scallions added to the light and milky broth, it’ll give you lots of energy for exploring your first day. If you’re a spice lover, request for daegu maeuntang instead! 😍Halal status: Seafood-only restaurant. No alcohol or animal derivatives were used in the preparation of the soup.

The Technique of Healing is full of IG-worthy media art designed by local Korean artists, with exhibits that evoke a sense of healing from day-to-day life. It was a meaningful experience as we took our time looking at each media art piece and learning about its story 😌 
It was also full of couples and groups of friends when we went, and everyone lined up patiently to take photos with the various exhibits. As this exhibition is for a limited time until May 2023, it should be on your must-visit list when in Busan! 🤩Admission: From KRW14,400 for adults Address: Museum 1, 20 Centumseo-ro, Haeundae-gu, Busan, South Korea Opening hours: 11 AM-8 PM on weekdays, 11 AM -9 PM on weekendsWebsite* | Instagram | Booking Information (also available on major ticketing sites)Cruise down Suyeong River while enjoying sunset views

Do set aside at least 2 hours to explore this place! 😌Full of alleys with colourful murals painted on its walls, taking photos of the iconic landmarks and visiting one of their many cafes is a must-do when at Huinnyeoul Culture Village.

Hotteok is one of Korea’s famous street snacks, for a good reason! The hot and crispy pancake is filled with warm sugar syrup that oozes every bite 🤤One taste will have you thinking of it even when you leave Korea, and it’s Muslim-friendly too! 🥳 Busan’s hotteoks, also called ssiat hotteok, are extra special because they are topped up with seeds and nuts.

This is because the restaurants outside are usually more transparent with the costs incurred in preparing your meal! Halal status: Seafood options available. We recommend double-checking with the respective stall owners that dishes prepared do not include alcohol. Please also note that alcoholic beverages are served here.

Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to cook your favourite Korean meals at home? As its name suggests, Busan Cooking Class teaches you how to cook Busan-style dishes with the guidance of a local chef, followed by a tea tasting and a tour of the local markets 🥰
We tried our hand at making dongnae pajeon (Busan style pancake)and nakjibokkeum (spicy octopus stew). It was actually easier than we expected, and tasted so delicious!

This hotel is part of the Jeju Dream Tower, an integrated resort offering 1,600 rooms, multiple restaurants and spas, and gorgeous city views 🤩We stayed in the 65-sqm King Room, which was huge!

Have you ever heard of the phrase “Take nothing but pictures and leave nothing but footprints”? This is understood as taking care of the environment around us whenever we visit new places.

BY100 brought us on a bike tour, where we enjoyed the lovely sea breeze while cycling along the seaside. We were also lucky to catch beautiful hydrangeas in full bloom! After a rest stop at a cafe, the tour ended with a beach cleanup, fostering a culture of caring for our earth 😌 Admission: Free Booking information: Instagram | WebsiteHike up Seongsan Ilchulbong 
Seongsan Ilchulbong is one of Jeju’s top attractions for a good reason.
