If you’ve been wanting to visit Busan’s Jagalchi Market – South Korea’s largest seafood market – or Gamcheon Culture Village, nicknamed the Machu Picchu of Busan, there’s one more reason to book your ticket: Direct flight from Singapore.
SilkAir will be launching the flights from Singapore to this second-largest city in South Korea from May 1. According to the airline, no other airline operators currently have flights between Singapore and Busan.
The aircraft of choice is the Boeing 737 MAX 8, which will have both Business and Economy Class cabins. The full-service flight includes meals, wireless in-flight entertainment, and complimentary baggage allowance.
Located on the southeastern tip of the Korean Peninsula, Busan is famous for its natural coastal scenery such as the beautiful beaches of Haeundae and Gwangalli. Additionally, travellers can experience Busan’s specialty foods such as the ssiat hotteok, a sweet Korean-style pancake stuffed with seeds, brown sugar, honey and peanuts.
