This post is actually a backdated one, a trip from 9th to 11th April 2013, all thanks to the lovely and a very very humble girl from Singapore; Farah – Thank you so much.
I went to Busan as a tour guide.
All thanks to Farah that I was given this opportunity to rest my mind and my body near the cool and famous Haeundae beach.
It was my fourth time to Busan and I really feel like at home. I prefer smaller city like how I love Osaka over Tokyo. The same goes with Busan…but a warning for first-timer-entry-to-South Korea-via-Busan.
Busan is pretty much laid back as compared to the capital city; Seoul. For the umpteenth time, I just cannot..not to miss the Busan saturi = dialect. It sounds so sexy to my ears!
It kinda amazed me how I just love the intonation when people use saturi.
If you ever watched Dream High; The character Song Sam Dong played by Kim Soo Hyun spoke in saturi = dialect…Gyeongsangbuk-do saturi I guess..but I can’t nail the exact district. Ilsan? Masan? Ulsan? Busan? Hmmm…If in Malaysia, that would be so “kampung” of Song Sam Dong..hehe.
Out from the arrival hall at Gimhae Airport – following the crowds to take Busan Metro for Haeundae. Read the sign ‘부산김해경전철 타는곳’
I stayed near Haeundae beach and the view of the beach was superb! The weather was great but rather cold for a dip in the beach but the sunshine…oh..sunshine. I was in love.
There wasn’t much places covered during our trip to Busan, only:
- Haeundae Beach
- Yonggungsa or Yonggung temple
- Gwangalli Beach
- Gamcheon Cultural Village
- Jagalchi Market
- Lotte Shopping Complex at Nampo-dong
And..we covered only half day by walking and the rest of the time with taxi. Well not cheap…but Farah had blisters on her feet from her exhaustive 7-day-Seoul trip before coming to Busan. She burnt herself pretty good..heheh..Farah, I told you so lah!
I will try to write a few posts for the places covered in Busan during this trip but for now..I really need my wink. My dark-circle has gone down my cheeks, yikes!!
Hope this post helps to give you the feel of Gimhae Airport once you walk out to find Busan Metro. ^^
