Where to go: 

DAY 1

A. Oryukdo Skywalk

Coming from Canvas Hostel, we took bus 1003 heading towards the same side of the road from where we got down coming from Busan Station.

1. Ride bus 1003
2. Get down at Kyungsung Univ., Pukyong National Univ Station (9 stops)
3. Ride bus 131 (no need to walk to change bus, stay at the bus station when you get down of Kyungsung Univ., Pukyong National Univ Station)
4. Get down at Oryukdo SK View Back Gate (last stop)

After having lunch, we decided to explore more of the area, we noticed this pathway after walking on the skywalk:

We decided to go near the ocean, to our surprise the place was a good place to take some photos.

there is an area where you can your photo inside the information center

B. Gamcheon Culture Village

Decided to visit Gamcheon towards sunset, I saw some photos and read some blogs that it was magical to catch the sunset there.

Coming from Canvas Hostel, we took bus 1003 heading towards the same side of the road from where we got down coming from Busan Station.

1. Ride bus 1003
2. Get down at Chungmu-dong Intersection (17 stops)
3. Ride bus 1-1/2/2-2  (no need to walk to change bus, stay at the bus station when you get down of Chungmu-dong Intersection)
4. Get down at Gamcheon Culture Village (maybe around 11 stops? just be alert of your surroundings)

IMG_6689
this is how the 1-1/2/2-2 bus will look like!
IMG_6690
tall friend cannot fit their local bus :c

We went down when we saw this sign:

We “hiked” back from the bus stop because if we keep on walking down, it won’t be towards Gamcheon Culture Village anymore.

IMG_6694

IMG_6695
we decided to wait for the sunset in this coffee shop (we noticed the photo outside!! their rooftop was pretty)

We were hungry to find a good restaurant so we decided to go down at Chungmu-dong Intersection after riding the 1-1/2/2-2 bus and went inside this pork BBQ restaurant.

IMG_6739
not hard to miss the place, their sign was huge

thank you Yan for always cooking for us

DAY 2

A. Sunrise chasing at Haeundae Beach

Okay so here is finally the one I’ve been waiting for as soon as we arrived at Busan. We checked the weather app and it told us that sunrise starts at around 5:40 am, we were already walking towards Haeundae Beach at around 5:20!

Why only walk?? It’s because we booked at Canvas Hostel!! I was looking for hostels that is near Haeundae Beach since I was wanted to see the sunrise! You’ll just walk straight as soon as you walk towards the bus stop. The photos wasn’t able to justify the beauty of the sunrise.

B. Samnak Eco-Park

So one of my best friends tagged me on twitter that there is a pathway in Busan that is FILLED with cherry blossoms! We decided to go the place!

We got semi-lost going to the place.. but I took the bus stop that is near the park!

IMG_6816

IMG_6817
only bus number 123/126 pass by here

If you get down at this station, you’ll see the park already!

IMG_6818

IMG_6819
could’ve been perfect if we weren’t too late but there were still cherry blossoms!
