Let’s enjoy Busan for this Chuseok holiday!
The more you know about Busan, the more you’ll like it.
Busan is the second largest city located on the most south-eastern coast of the Korean peninsula. It is an interesting city and has several awesome beaches and some awesome tourist places you can visit for sightseeing.
We’ll have 2 and a half day in Busan, which is enough time to cover the must see places in Busan including some time on the beach and your free time in the evening.
Upon our arrival at Gwangri beach, we’re going to hang around on the beach where you can enjoy the morning sunshine and sound of waves, which is beach healing time. You’ll see the famous colorful Gwananri bridge with lots of light on it at night. Also, you can take rest on the bus, stay and take rest at Jiimjilbang and check in to guest house is optional( if rooms are available early morning).
See below about the details of where we visit and what we do.
Gwangalli Beach is a 1.5 kilometer-long stretch of fine sandy beach. It is said to be one of the top three beaches in Busan. At night, the beach offers marvelous views of the colorfully lit Gwangandaegyo bridge, the iconic landmark of Busan.The areas has lots of cafes and restaurants.
The forest, rocky cliffs, and the vast ocean unfolds a picturesque scenic beauty. A number of famous attractions are located including Sinseondae cliff, Mangbuseok Roc, and Yeongdo Lighthouse, which is considered the iconic symbol of Taejongdae. It is a must place in Busan to explore this scenic place.
When it comes to a temple in Korea, you automatically think that they are located in forested mountains. Unlike most other temples, it is situated on the coast, looking almost like a majestic underwater palace.
This beautiful Island also known as the Island of Camellias is an island located off one end of Busan’s famous Haeundae Beach.
This island has several different points of attraction and it also offers fantastic views of the Busan shoreline towards Mipo, Dalmaji Hill, Gwangangdaegyo Bridge, and Oryukdo Island. As the name suggests, camellias burst into bloom everywhere on the island from winter to spring.
You can spend some time at the skywalk and enjoy the beautiful ocean surrounding the sky walk. If you like, you can try the sea cable car flying over the ocean! This is something new they just built recently.
Yongdu Mountain( 49m) located at Nampodong is one of Busan’s three famous mountains and the Busan Tower, which is one of Busan’s symbols proudly stand and greets visitors. The name comes from the idea that the mountain peak is shaped similar to a dragon’s head (yongdu), protecting the area from foreign invaders coming from the sea. You can try the elevator that takes you to the top where you can see the whole picture of Busan.
This seafood market is one of Korea’s foremost seafood markets, where visitors can enjoy seafood and fresh fish.
You can enjoy both shopping and cultural life. This trendy district is filled with modern skyscrapers and uniquely designed buildings. Some of the most notable buildings in the area include Shinsege department store in the world.
Gamcheon Cultural Village is one of the most popular spots in Busan, attracting lots of tourists and it is formed by houses built in staircase-fashion on the foothills of a coastal mountain, earning this village the nickname of “Machu Picchu of Busan.” The many alleys cutting through this community are vibrantly decorated with murals and sculptures created by the residents.
