Yongdusan Jagalchi Special Tourist Zone is an attractive tourism area embracing history and culture. Vendors in the traditional market welcome tourists with their warm hearts, selling their famous street food such as rice cake, ssiat hotteok (seed-stuffed Korean-style pancake), bibim dangmyeon (spicy glass noodles), pat juk (red bean porridge), and pat bingsu (shaved ice with sweetened red beans). Bosu-dong and 40-Step Culture & Tourism Themed Street also show the history of each street to people traveling in the area. Including Yongdusan Park, the special tourist zone includes traditional markets like Jagalchi Market, Gukje Market, and Bupyeong Market, and historical cultural resources like Yeongdodaegyo Bridge, Bosu-dong Secondhanded Book Alley, and Busan Modern History Museum. The restoration of Yeongdodaegyo Bridge in November 2013 has created a unique sightseeing attraction that is hard to see in other regions and has emerged as a new famous spot. Bupyeong (Kkongtong) Market and Gukje Market are also special markets full of things to see. Various festivals including Busan International Film Festival, Busan Jagalchi Festival, and Busan Christmas Tree Festival are held for all kinds of visitors. The view from Yongdusan Park and fresh seafood from Jagalchi Market, as well as peaceful strolling at Bosu-dong Alley and 40-Steps make a trip to Busan memorable and happy.
