Nurimaru APEC House


The name Nurimaru APEC House is the combination of the Korean words nuri (“world”)and maru (“summit”), while APEC stands for Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation. Collectively, it means “a house where world leaders gathered together for an APEC meeting.” The leaders of 21 APEC member nations came together for an APEC leaders’ meeting and luncheon at the Nurimaru APEC House on November 19, 2005. The leaders had high praise for the Nurimaru APEC House, which features a high-tech conference system, comprehensive services and the unique beauty of Korean traditional architecture blended with modern designs.

Nurimaru has become one of Busan’s representative attractions and is very popular among domestic and international tourists.
