Let's GO, Seoul●Busan! 首爾●釜山趴趴走!

안녕하세요 여러분! \^0^/
Annyeonghaseyo, everyone!

We still have a few places to visit before saying goodbye to Busan.

C'mon let's GOOO! :)


September 15, 2016 (Thursday)

Just like there is N-Seoul Tower in Seoul,
they have Busan Tower in Busan,
and it is located at Yongdusan Park.

Its name is originated from the shape of the mountain, which is similar to dragon head ("yong-du") and people thought it has a spirit to defeat enemies coming over the sea.

From our current location (BIFF Square), it takes around 17 minutes (1.11 km) to reach Yongdusan Park, according to Naver Map.

However, if you are exiting from Nampo Station, Exit 1,
it will roughly takes 8 minutes walking to reach the park.

Note : Naver Map can be really really handy when you are travelling in South Korea.
Unfortunately, this APP is currently available in Korean only.

Anyway, here is the tutorial link (English) for Naver Map.
Hope it helps :)

When you see the fleet of stairs (shown below), you are just about to reach your destination.
That's the easiest and most convenient way to climb up the hill - escalator.
(but you have to take the stairs while coming down)

Look, there's the Busan Tower!

There is no admission fee to enter the park.
However, the entrance fee for Busan Tower is KRW4,000 (age 16 and above), and KRW3,500 (age below 16).

Since these towers don't vary much from one to another (where they will have exhibition hall and souvenir shops), we thought to give it a pass.

Instead we take our own time and walk around the park, just chilling out.

Since we still have time before dinner time, we decided to visit one more place before sunset
- Gwangalli Beach.

From Nampo Station (111), we are taking metro to Gwangan Station (209),
interchange at Seomyeon Station (119 / 219).

Take Exit 3, and walk straight for about 13 minutes (850m) until you see the beach.

Just like Haeundae Beach last night, it is quite a happening spot where you can find lots of entertainment activities are going on.

Coincidentally, we even met the same magician whom performed at Haeundae Beach last night! (it's a small world afterall)

An inevitable beautiful night scenery will be the lights on Gwangan Bridge (부산 광안대교, "Busan Gwangandaegyo").

It's such a relaxing feeling here while the background music is the sound of the sea waves clapping on the beach. And street musicians playing to their songs... I just wish the night never over.

But we couldn't stay as long as we wish to.
Heading back to Gwangan Station, we take metro back to Haeundae Station.

On the way back to our hotel, there is a restaurant which also sells guk-bab (pork soup rice). Quite famous actually.

We waited outside the restaurant for quite a bit, cause the restaurant was fulled house at that hour. Actually we don't really bother, as long as it worth the waiting time.

And finally, dinner is served!
We ordered two bowls of guk-bab which worth KRW7,000 per serving.

The taste is less savory than I expected, but worth the try.
I should try the Twins' Restaurant at Daeyeon on my next visit!

밀양순대돼지국밥 | Miryang Korean Restaurant

** Tel : +82-51-731-7005 **

Soon after our dinner, we head back to hotel to rest.
Goodnight Busan!


Thank you and hope you enjoy reading :)
Please look forward to the next post!
