Russian Town, not China town

I thought i was at the wrong place. So many Russian and Russian restaurants. And in general the area was very small. Nothing special.

The sign from the subway says this is shopping area for foreigners. Which ended up to be China town. Which is a street that's quiet even on a Saturday night. Resturant's don't look great. Last thing you want to see in Korea....

Its a totally different atmosphere when I stepped in here; there are plenty of sleazy bars and karaoke joints among the Chinese and ex USSR countries restaurants. Chinese food appears expensive too. I guess it will just be a one time exploratory trip here for me.

We’ve been to many Chinatowns and most are not great. The best perhaps is in San Francisco. Even the small street in LA that is Chinatown is barely sufficient to be called a Chinatown, much less than the Chinatown in Busan. Nonetheless, we saw it on the bus and decided to take a closer look. There are just a few... More

It's a pretty small Chinatown, but it's very easy to reach, basically right in front of the train station. Quite a lot of restaurants and shops,like in any Chinatown.

Don't recommend to come here, especially alone, especially if you're a woman. There are a lot of drunk Russians, South East Asian hookers, and -stan gangs. But a nice thing about this place is that you can buy a good bread in Russian stores and it's very close to Busan Station. 🍞🍞🍞

We reached china town because we got lost. It wasn't so bad but there was nothing to rave about. We did eat at a Filipino restaurant and the food was great so I was not disappointed. We were there in the morning and there was not much activity and nothing to cause us any concern either. We went back at... More

The only reason we passed through is because that's where we stayed. It looks more like a Russiatown honestly. Not worth to visit. Good location to stay because it's so close to KTX.

It's a street with some Chinese and Russian places. You can buy lingerie and beer. That's about it.-------------------
