What to see in Busan

Travel in Korea is easy, all destinations is easily connected by bus and Metro Line. All you need to do is prior preparation like where to take the transport, what is the bus number and where to get off. You might have difficulty with the Korea language - hard to communicated with the bus driver. Therefore, you will need to listen carefully when they mentioned the location name for you to hop off the bus. So far, we didn't face any big challenges regarding their public transport.

My advice is, always hold the tourism map with you. Not everyone is good with English here. Besides, buy Cashbee card or T-money card for travel, it is comparison cheaper and convenience to travel in Korea.

I stayed in Haeundae Beach area for the first day and manage to visit the following tourism attraction places as follows:  

1. Haeundae Beach
Haeundae Beach is claimed as No. 1 beach in Busan. Fine sandy beach, windy and at night there are street performance at the beach. Many people gather there for more

2. Nurimaru APEC House and Dongbaek Park
A beautiful photo taking spot of Dongbaek island you should not miss! Nurimaru APEC House (the venue of the APEC Economic Leaders' Meeting) and beautiful landscape around Gwangan Bridge. It is nearby Haeundae Beach... 

3. Haedong Yonggungsa Temple
Korea Buddha's birthday fall on 6 May this year, therefore it was crowed with people when I visited Yonggungsa Temple. The temple is special because it sit near the cliff beside the sea. It is famous for the glorious sunrise from the East Sea. At Haeundae Station, Exit 7. Take Bus 181 and get off at Yonggungsa Temple (temple stop is announced in English). 

In the third day, we move to Nampo-dong area where the following tourism area is nearby.

1. Yongdusan Park
Mt Yongdusan's name was originated from its appearance where is similar to a dragon head. It is like a dragon has come down from Baekdudaegan and moving towards the sea. It provides a beautiful view of Busan harbour from the 120 meter high observation deck siting in this Yongdusan Park.

2. BIFF Square

3. Jagalchi Market

4. Gukje Market and Bupyeong Ggangtong Night Market

5. Taejongdae Area
Taejongdae originates in Shilla Dynasty, it was recorded as the place where Shilla Taejong (King Muyeol, Chunchu Kim) used to practice archery and ritual for rain. Beautiful sea cliff, thick forest and blue ocean...
