Lonely Planet define Busan as follows:
"Bursting with mountains and beaches, hot springs and seafood, South Korea’s second-largest city is a rollicking port town with tonnes to offer. From casual tent bars and chic designer cafes to fish markets teeming with every species imaginable, Busan has something for all tastes. Rugged mountain ranges criss-crossing the city define the urban landscape, while events such as the Busan International Film Festival underscore the city’s desire to be a global meeting place. "
About Chosun Hotel
The Secretary General and Executive Director of IAP paid a site visit in Busan back in January 2017. Here is a brief description of their impression of the conference venue:
"The Chusun hotel has a great location with an excellent view across the sandy Haeundae Beach, from what appear to be most of the rooms, bars and restaurants. The hotel is located at Dongbaek Island and just behind the property visitors will find an attractive coastal park, where guests can enjoy a bracing walk or run among the trees. We were told, that the many magnolia trees at the Island will bloom in April so participants will have an extra benefit of visiting Busan at this exact time of the year."
The IAP Officials visited the Busan District Prosecutor's Office and met with the senior management team headed by Mr. Cheol Kyu Hwang, Chief Prosecutor of Busan.
