One Day Travel to Busan

Today I'm writing a new post and I hope you enjoy reading my blog post about the Gwangandaegyo Bridge (부산 광안대교), the Suyongman Bay Yacht Club (부산 수영만 요트 경기장), and Haeundae Beach (해운대해수욕장) in Busan (부산).

In my last holiday I went to Busan with my Oppa. We went from my home at 07.00 AM by using a car and we arrived in Busan at 12:30 PM. It took about five and half hours because of the heavy traffic jam. If we go to Busan by KTX we could arrive earlier, that's only 3 hours by KTX.

First time we went to the Gwangandaegyo Bridge (부산 광안대교).
Gwangan Daegyo's total length is 7,420 meters and is a multi-layered structure with 8 cross lanes. It is the bridge on the sea connecting Busan; Namcheon-dong, Suyeong-gu; and Centum City in U-dong, Haeundae-gu. Started in August 1994, it was completed on January 6, 2003, for the smooth delivery of Busan city's industry, to ease the city's traffic jams, and to be one of the main tourist attractions. It is the longest bridge in Korea, 110 meters longer than Seohae Daegyo. It is equipped to show over 100,000 various lighting effects depending on the hour, date, and season. It is Korea's first 2 story marine bridge and suspension bridge, and is also Korea's largest in scale. It is part of Busan's famous Gwangan Beach's night scene.

Also we went to the Suyongman Bay Yacht Club (부산 수영만 요트 경기장) and we continued to view seascape with the cruiser.

The Suyongman Bay Yacht Club in Busan is gaining a reputation as an International Ocean recreation place. Used during the 86 Asian Games and the 88 Seoul Olympics, Busan Yachting Center is an internationally acclaimed with more than 1,300 yachts and international facilities. Numerous yacht races are held here. It also has various facilities in commemoration of the Olympics, such as Sculpture Park, Recreation Park, Strolling Path and some cafeterias. In the vicinity are leisure water sport training schools such as a yacht school, wind surfing school, and scuba diving school. There is also a big yacht where you can enjoy the East Sea. The surrounding scenery is absolutely beautiful with the open ocean. This center also possesses squares and monuments. The walls have been torn dow completely in February 2002 to combine the harmony of the ocean and the forest and it is now open 24 hours free of charge for citizens. Thus, it has received many compliments as well as love from the people.

I really do love the beach such as the water, the sand, and the atmosphere.
My first time enjoying the beach in the cold weather was actually back on January 1st. I had the day off from University and work that day, so I decided to spend it at the beach with Oppa. I feel really happy and it was a memorable trip with him. One more thing, I feel really lucky and blessed to live in South Korea, and somehow be even happier than I was the first time that I lived here. 
This country is amazing, the people an independent, and the food is delicious. 
I know not everyone would have the experience that I'm having but I am very happy with who I am and my life right now. I'm happy that I've decided to live on my own in a city where I didn't know anyone previously, I'm making new friends and having good and bad experiences.

Here are a few pictures of the Haeundae Beach (해운대해수욕장)!
Haeundae also has been different cafes, restaurants, bars, hotels, motels and guest houses most of which are foreigner friendly.

I really happy and enjoy the atmosphere in the beach in Busan. After having fun as long eight hours, finally we returned to home. Before come back to Seoul, we rested beforehand and we decided on dwaeji gukbap (돼지국밥) for dinner.

Dwaeji Gukbap is simply a soup with hearty pork bits and rice. It's a regional dish of coastal Gyeongsang-do (경상도) province in Korea. Thus, it's rare to find it in Seoul and definitely a specialty dish of Busan.
Now it's ready to enjoy along with your favourite side dishes!
Their slices of pork is like slightly thinner slices of pork dish (bossam) with those salty mini prawns which goes marvelously well together. Trust me! It tastes so much better than it looks.
The food was very delicious! I can't really finish the whole bowl because it is really big with lots of meat. 
Have you had dwaeji gukbap before? Please share your experience below!

Thank you for reading this post and loving South Korea! I hope you enjoy reading my post and you guys, get a chance to get here and have fun in Korea! See you soon on my next post!
