Busan Chinatown, which is located across the street from Busan Station, is also known as Shanghai Street. In 1884, Busan established ties with Shanghai in China and developed a Chinese community by building a Chinese school, residences and a consulate in the area. In this Chinese-style street you can see the Shanghai Gate established by both Busan City and Shanghai City. Mainly packed with many Chinese restaurants, Chinatown attracts Koreans and Chinese visitors, as well as many foreign tourists.
