Get ready to explore Gwangalli, one of the hippest areas in Busan. In this experience, you will get a sense of the liveliness of the area, and why Gwangalli is one of the most popular night spots in the country! At my favorite local restaurant, you will try delicous Korean barbecue and discover other Korean cuisine. I'll teach you the joys of soju, the most popular Korean drink, and the golden ratio of somaek (Soju mixed with beer - a Korean favorite). You'll have the opportunity to meet one of my Korean friends, who speaks fluent English, and loves chatting and sharing Korean culture. Feel free to ask anything you like! Afterwards, we’ll walk to the famous Gwangalli Beach and take in the amazing Gwangan Bridge view. After years of living seconds from the beach, I have discovered the best spots to visit here. I’ll take you to the all these spots so we can see different live music, interesting performances, and young people hanging out with friends on the beach enjoying drinks and snacks. At the end of the experience, I will give you numerous recommendations on the best Gwangalli beach bars to visit, if you want to continue the night!
I grew up in the USA, moved to South Korea for work, and been living an international lifestyle in Korea and Busan for 4 years now. I fell in love with my new home in Gwangalli because it is the perfect intersection of food, culture, beach life, and entertainment. I’m passionate about sharing my Korean knowledge with visitors to Korea because there are so many different things to taste, cultural mysteries to share, and local knowledge to learn. I have tried virtually all 100 of the BBQ restaurants in Gwangalli and want to share with you the best one! Join me and you'll have a fantastic night!

I can guarantee an evening that you won't forget!
