Seoul welcomed us with a nice weather after few raining days. For the second time coming back to Korea, of course, we want to have something new for our trip. Busan is a great choice for a one day trip, even you can do a two or three days with this beautiful city 🙂 Also, its summer – to – be, lets go to a city with famous beach and seafood ^^
For transportation: From Seoul, you can prepare for you a Korail pass then go to Seoul Station for ticket exchange or directly buy ticket here.
Tips: Korail pass gives you a better price but remember to get a seat insteading of standing ticket because the express train will take about 2 hours and 50 minutes to arrive in Busan
Our schedule for Busan is:
– Gamcheon Cultural Village: Its famouse of colorful houses with best view from the top of valley
– Jangachi Market: The huge seafood market and you should enjoy a big lunch with fresh seafood
Right after getting out of Busan Station, you just follow the arrows to reach to Busan Subway Station. Using your Tmoney card to move from Busan Station to Toseong Station then went to exit 2. You will see the map to Gamcheon Village by bus No2 or 2-2. This green bus is the only choice for you and the driver is daebak. He drove the big bus to climb up the hill, omg, such an experience!
Here is some photos of the village:
Its time for lunch after spending all strength and energy to climb up the top for photos haha! Just use the railway to get back to Jalgachi, right before the Toseong stop. The market is 5 mins walking from the station and lets explore all the seafood world and pick for you any restaurant!
Our lunch is snow crab (king crab was too big for three of us, recommend for team with 5 people), abalone (nice and fresh) and the restaurant gave us a big table of panjang =))
Its a one day trip so we decided to go back to Seoul after lunch (4pm). Lets see Hongdae beach next time ^^
