BUSAN BEACHES!

 

i’m finally back with another travel post from korea.i dont think there’s gonna be more of these because to be honest, i didnt take that many photos with my camera. maybe one or two more random korea posts (:

anyway, on one of the weekends, my friend, joanna and i decided to go to BUSAN! we took a bus there. it took about 4 hours. we didnt want to buy the KTX ticket because it’s more expensive. but if you want to save time, go ahead and take the KTX. it takes about 2 hours plus to get there from Seoul. when we reached Busan, we headed to our hostel. haha. it wasnt the best to be honest. lol. but we headed to the all famous Haeundae beach! it’s super packed. very popular with young people.

this post focuses on the beaches in Busan. mainly the Haeundae beach and Gwangali beach. there is a third one. i cant remember the name.

something that Busan has that Seoul doesnt. BEACHES! you see those umbrellas? there are plenty of them around. we were almost conned into paying for the usage of the umbrellas. haha. they only provide u with a mat. and since we brought our own, we just sneaked under the umbrella for some shade. i took a long nap there. hahaha. so nice to sleep on the beach with the cool sea breeze. i remember doing that at santa monica beach. it was awesome.

another thing to note is that they sell fried chicken at the beach! haha. along with the popular food delivery service in parks (hangang) they also have the same thing at the beach. you can see vendors holding bags of fried chicken and selling them to you. haha. very convenient if you’re hungry after playing in the sea. which we didnt plan to. cos the water is cold and it was really crowded. haha. and it beach isnt the cleanest ><

we then headed to Gwangali beach in the evening. it was just a really chill time watching the sunset and i remember we had a very meaningful and long conversation by the beach. the beach is a lot less crowded that haeundae. there are no beach umbrellas for rent. haha. more for couples just walking along the beach. this beach is special because there is a bridge right in the middle of it! it joins two ends of Busan. at night, the bridge lights up and it’s beautiful. and romantic too (:Image

Imagejust felt like spamming pictures of us. haha. like i said, i didnt really take that many pictures because i was in a chill mode. sometimes. it’s better to take less pictures and just appreciate the scenery around you.

the next day we went for some sightseeing with two other guys and spent the night at a jimjillbang. haha. that was an interesting experience. will blog about that another time (:
