Busan is full of fun in June! Centum Beer Festival has kicked off, and the grand opening of Songdo Marine Cable car is soon to follow after being closed for the past 29 years.

The greatly anticipated Centum Beer Festival is currently taking place from 6 pm to 11 pm from until June 11 at KNN Centum Square. Visitors are welcome to enjoy unlimited free beer for an admission fee of 10,000 won. Stage performances will keep visitors entertained while the Food Zone offers a variety of menus to choose from for a reasonable price.

On June 21, Busan’s new tourism landmark, Songdo Marine Cable Car will launch its new operation. Songdo Marin Cable Car originally began its business in 1964 and was closed down in 1988, and is now ready to re-launch its business under the new name Busan Air Cruise. A total of 39 cabins will carry its customers from Busan Songdo Beach’s eastern Songnim Park to the beach’s western Amnam Park, covering a distance of 1.62 km. Out of the 39 cable cars, 13 cabins consist of transparent floors and are referred to as Crystal Cabins.

Nearby attractions of Songdo Marine Cable Car include Korea’s first cable car museum, the Science Museum, and a virtual flying trapeze simulator, VR Sky Swing.
