Busan Destinations: Chinatown

Located across from Busan Station, Chinatown is composed Chinese residential areas, businesses and schools. The neighborhood, original host to the Chinese consulate at the opening of Busan Port, is easily recognizable by the Door of Shanghai. The ornate archway was erected to honor the sister city relationship established between Busan and Shanghai.
 
Chinatown is a perennial tourist favorite largely due to its authentic Chinese food restaurants, but has recently grown more popular following coverage in film and television. Home to a high number of foreign workers, including Russians and Central Asians, Chinatown is a diverse area of the city with ethnic foods and currency exchanges available on every corner.
 
The neighborhood hosts the annual award-winning Chinatown Festival each October.
