Back in Busan 2012! Part 3


Busan is famous for its 6 beaches in one state. One of my favorite is the Gwangalli beach. It's just so different from what we had in Malaysia. If you ask me what is it, I would say the Gwangan Bridge and the mixed feelings in between a city & beach.

Gwanggalli Beach & Gwangan Bridge are just worth for one post. HAHAHA

#1. It is easy to travel from one tourist spot to another. Reachable by railway or the bus.

#2. The seashore with the birds & building. @Gwangalli Beach

@Gwangalli Beach

#14 Us! @Gwangalli Beach
Were planning to overnight at the beach. But I was the only one who fall asleep.
Two of them just pillow talk all the night and became my bodyguards. The COLDNESS had just kept them awake!
You have no idea how many layers I have wore on that night.

Ohh! Before I forget, there is one tourist information center nearby with a very kind manager! We asked him where can we buy a mat because we were planning to sleep on the seashore. Since the mart was quite far by walking, he just gave us his mat and tell us we do not have to return! How kind can a person be like this. 
But we also returned him the next day.

Ps my travel mates : Do you still remember our sand pillow? :P

#15 Another shot. I miss it! @Gwangalli Beach
The light of the bridge will be turned off at 12midnight.

#16 The next morning. Unexpected discovery. 
The amazing sunrise! I was planning to leave, thanks god let me witness one of the scenic sunrise ever.
@Gwangalli Beach

#17 With my hat & shoes. @Gwangalli Beach

Strongly Recommend Guesthouse :

If you are looking for places to stay at Jalgachi Market, you can look for them! Very helpful & kind owners!
Last time when I was staying there, it happened that I lost my wallet, you have no idea how serious of losing a wallet at foreign country T^T  
The owners have been very kind to help me in cancelling my bank card & contact my Korean teacher for help.

Put aside my personal experience, the guesthouse was just nice and lovely. Small little things can just add marks for that. Hmm such as beside hair dryer, there was curler too. HAH not sure if it is still there. :P You can see Busan Tower from their lobby too! 

You can just contact the owner from their facebook page for room booking & their package. 

Guess that's for my Busan post! Wish you have fun travelling!

One of the Busan tourist spot! Taejongdae

#1 Welcome to Taejongdae. 
One thing make Busan unique is there is many scenic parks!
It's advised to wear a good shoes for this. 
Korea elders are so healthy, everytime me & Cf went for hiking, there will be almost 70% is elders.
They are just being so healthy but am not sure it related to KimChi or not. 

#2 The 'insect car' is available for hop in and off at one point. @Taejongdae

#3 The lighthouse on the cliffs! @Taejongdae
you will get to see many lighthouse at Busan as it is nearby the sea.

#4 At the stunning open cliffs. @Taejongdae
I have visited the cliffs at Jeju & Bali (watch from far) but this is the first open cliffs that I have been.
You got to spot another island, Yeongdo-gu which is at my back in the pic.

There is a public bus to reach, but the bus will only stop at the main road. We have to walk around 5-10mins to reach the temple. 

#6 12 Zodiac welcoming! @Haedong Yonggungsa Temple

Back in Busan 2012! Part 1

After I finished my exchange programme at Solbridge, me & the kakis traveled to BUSAN, the second large city in South Korea after Seoul. In the recent Airasia promo, I bet some of my friends did purchased the +- rm600 for round trip flight. I want to go again! But budget constraint, so I can only refresh my memory here. Heeee so at Busan we did visit some places and am gonna talk (rather than talk, i would say 'pic') about this lovely place.

Main Places I personally like about BUSAN are
1. Gamcheongdong Culture Village
2. Taejongdae
3. Haedong Yonggungsa Temple 
4. Gwanggali Beach & Gwangan Bridge

I apologize for not being able to show each location through the map of Busan. I will show you some pictures place by place. :)))

#1. Indoor Musical Water Fountain @ Lotte Department Store
A good break when you are tiring of walking. This is located at the base of the Lotte Department Store and there is a regular showing time everyday. 

#2. Love Lock @Lotte Department Store
Located at the rooftop, the top level of the building. South Korea is popular with the love lock,Other than N Soul tower, Isadong , you can also found it here.

#3. Lock the love with your loves! & throw away the key :D

#4. Night view of Busan @Lotte Department Store
At Busan you can always find places easily to see the stunning night view.

#5. Port @Jagalchi Market

Jagalchi market is famous for seafood because it is near to the port. There is a lot of restaurant at the wet market, and you can easily get some to try on their seafood.
There is one buffet seafood restaurant but we didnt have the chance to go for it.

It was cloudy when our 1st day there.

#6 Explore the culture! @Gamcheondong Culture Village
This is suitable for people who likes to walk and slowly explore new culture. 

#7 @Gamcheondong Culture Village 
There is good guide of the arrow of fishes to show you which way to go.
My legs. :P

#8 @Gamcheondong Culture Village. 
The best traveled kakis. <3

#9 @Gamcheondong Culture Village
The view at the top of the flats.

#10 Opss Duckie the wolf are waiting!! @Gamcheondong Culture Village

#11. Erm Human Birds? @Gamcheondong Culture Village

#12 @Gamcheondong Culture Village

#13 Indoor exhibition at one stop. @Gamcheondong Culture Village

#14 The super cute guide for you! @Gamcheondong Culture Village

#15 Jimjilbang @Vesta Sauna
Please google yourself what is Jimjilbang & the structure. :P Please try jimjilbang if you go S.Korea because we will never have it in Malaysia.
You just need to pay for 9000 won (rm27) per night for a rest.
Beside the registration is the locker for you to put your shoes.

#16 @Vesta Sauna with sleeping clothes provided after sauna.
me, after bath & sauna, massaging my foots with lolipop in mouth. 
Tired of walking. :D

#17 3 of us! @Vesta Sauna
I like this jimjilbang because you can see the night view of Busan throughout the window!
As you can see that is our sleeping place, using public pillow and mat and just sleep till the next morning.
If you want to max the usage of the jimjilbang you can go and have sauna again before check out. 

#18 The night view @Vesta Sauna
It is just worth all the 9000won right! Thanks to Miao who visited there before and recommend us.

#19 Another shoot.
Can see the Gwangan Bridge & Haeundae Beach. Super in love! <3
Even you sleep publicly you will still sleep well isn't it. 
For me lah at least with this good night view. HAHA

That's for part 1. Gonna sleep! Buhbye!
