  • Thanks to more than a hot one, Haeundae, Busan, gwangan bridge. Haeundae beach is more than personal taste, I also think that, against the backdrop of the bridge at night and take a picture really is the best ~!

  • It becomes very easy walk a couple of blocks from the Metro station. The Avenue is full of bars, restaurants, skyscrapers and hotels, excellent choice for dinner and very good view of the bridge!
