Busan Metropolitan City, located at the southeastern tip of the Korean peninsula, is the second-largest city in South Korea. On a mountainous terrain with a humid subtropical climate, Busan opened its trading port with Japan in 1407 and became the first international port in Korea in 1876. Now, the Port of Busan is the fifth-busiest container port in the world. Busan hosts the annual Busan Film Festival (BIFF), and its Haeundae Beach is a popular destination for locals and tourists.
