A few weeks ago I had the chance to tag along on one of my husband's work trips and head south to Busan, also known as Korea's 'summer capital'.
We just happened to be there in the week that is the absolute height of the summer holidays, when local newspapers claim that 2 million tourists descend on Busan's five beaches. 2 million! Really? Whatever the numbers, it was quite a sight and gave the place a wonderful happy holiday atmosphere - most enjoyable, provided you don't actually want to get near the water.
