Seoul and Busan are often compared to each other mainly for the simple fact that they are South Korea’s two largest cities. But they are very different from each other and they each have their own distinct vibe. These are just a few, but if you’re an expat thinking about coming to Korea to live for awhile, you might be trying to choose between the two. Me personally? I love them both. I would prefer to live in Seoul because I think it has more to do, but I love Busan’s more laidback feel for a big city.
