Busan half-day hits at Gwangalli Beach, Jagalchi Market, and Nampodong (+ A short video)

Gwangalli Beach (in the picture) is pretty much the same as Haeundae Beach only that, on the other side of Gwangalli, you have the longest array of bars while a busy down town city center in Haeundae. The sea water seems to be a lot clearer in Haeundae too which made me realize that I ย decided right on skinny dipping on the latter. We have to book our tickets to Gumi first beforehand to ensure seats on the 2 hour ride.

Gwangan Bridge is more beautiful at night as neon lights traces it skeleton.

The Gwangalli Beach shore seems to be a home for some domestic birds as well.

Jagalchi Fish Market is one of the most famous fish markets in the world. All sorts of fresh and live seafood may be found here. It’s like the first drop off point of fresh catch from the nearby Nampo port.

I also enjoyed walking through the Jagalchi Market and be amazed by all sorts of live seafood there. Giant squids, octopuses, fish, giant clams, king crabs, eels, and others are all in motion in their respective basin aquariums.

Before going home, we dropped by at Nampodong which is a small area shopping center where I was able to buy some presents. I got my sister a photo calendar of a Kpop group, my mother a medium sized Busan emblem, and my friends some “I love Korea” shirts.

Anyway, here’s a video I made for this half-day trip. ๐Ÿ™‚

    So beautiful! I love the photos. I would get a kick out of the seafood market too… being a pescetarian, the only meat I eat is seafood. ๐Ÿ™‚ The last photo also looks kind of mysterious and I like it. It makes me wonder what time of day it was taken. I used to do black and white photography and itโ€™s amazing what you can achieve with just the shades and tones.

    Looking at those pictures make me want to go there. Lovely pictures especially when they are in B&W. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Aww that bridge reminds me of my bridge in California (the golden gate…even though I don’t live there, I have been there so many times so it’s special to me.) Do you prefer B&W photos over color? You take some great shots!

      Yes. I really like the dynamism in b&w photos. I wish I had a better camera bec. I only use my iPhone.

    I’m really liking this black and white series of photographs that you’ve been snapping lately. Black and white seems to be really hip right now.

    Photos are awesome. The fish market looks awesome, and you can just imagine it how it would have been through past generations as well!
