I spent 3 days 2 nights in Busan, but I think I already have enough hiking dose for the whole year haha Most touristy place in Busan require us to hike and walk for at least 1km. In the end of the day it was all will be worth it because of the view, especially in Busan SkyWalk Oryukdeo and Taejongdae observatory (or just Taejongdae in general).
Busan public transport is very easy to use. Personally, I prefer to take the bus since we are always from the last stop, so the bus is quite empty. Do use Naver map in Korea since they will show you all the available routes. For going to SkyWalk we took the fastest route and the slowest to head back to our AirBnB (Sign up using my referral link to enjoy up to RM130 off your first stay at AirBnb), which is using a bus with 26+ stops haha. So, we are in the bus for about an hour (quite long but unlike in Malaysia the bus here equipped with wifi).
Busan Skywalk has the most surreal view.
Oryukdo Skywalk, Busan.
Me and Jingwen didn’t manage to walk on the main point of the place (the SkyWalk; transparent floor at the end of the cliff which can be seen in the next picture) but we are content with the view itself. Super surreal!!
There is also a kinda a hiking trail haha
Then you can have a better view (I guess hihu)
For Taejongdae Observatory, we are using train line 1 and stop in To Seong and from there we took bus number 8 which will have Taejongdae as the last stop. Taejongdae is a very tourist friendly place (it is a touristy place, but it is super tourist friendly). They have mini train to bring you to every stop along Taejongdae. Not much, just 4 stops in total but the total distance is more than 1.5km.
To reach the observatory require a lot of walking. It was all fun at first because we are going downstairs but when we are done at the observatory.. the journey up is hellish hahaha
I was super tired in Taejongdae because we went to Gamcheon Culture Village (probably my next blog spot) in the morning (excusesssss) I recommend to really plan your trip by having balance between activities that you plan to do that day. So you wont be all grumpy at the beautiful places due to tiredness haha
Do add these 2 beautiful tourist spots to your Busan itinerary. Totally recommended and another tourist spot is covered here!
