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 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.
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.
