  • I visited the Seokbulsa temple with some friends and we were all impressed. We parked about 1km down the mountain across from a little cafe which was very nice, the owner provided amazing service. The...  more »
  • Seokbulsa literally means Stone-Buddha-Temple which is an adequate name for this comparatively small but beautiful temple on a slope of the Geumjeongsan. There are many descriptions of the tricky hiki...  more »
  • Once in a friendly place for a long time. I am able to recapture the mood in the fall. Folding is surrounded by 5,000 to cancer. But if you look at the way rust rust-Chi will be able to feel the inner piece to go.

  • We are luckily to meet Mr Cho Hee Cheal without him we couldn't make our trip to Seokbulsa Temple. We took cable car from Geumgang Park to Geumjeongsan Fortress. We are lost in the fortress & luckily with helping by Mr Cho then we made it. Thanks again to very kind person Mr Cho Hee Cheal.
  • Nice little buddhist temple. It is about an hour's walk uphill from Mandeok subway station, well indicated from exit 2 (follow the road, keep left). First part of the walk is a bit ugly, but this improves. There is also a nicer hike, downhill from the cable car, but that hike requires some preparation. The temple has nice large buddhistic scenery carved in the rocks. Nice half day trip.
  • Very beautiful place
  • Very zen
  • Busan Subway line 3, but duck 1 hour walk from station, exit 2. The most common place is built of wood, the transformation of the ancient temples of Hung was built of stone.

Where to stay in Busan

Established as a domestic tourist destination for a long while now, you'll find a good set of accommodations in Busan, a city becoming more and more equipped to cope with its burgeoning international reputation. Around Seomyeon station and slightly further to the northeast lie some of the most established options, with an abundance of hotels, hostels, and guesthouses in this highly commercial district. Head to the Haeundae beach district for a range of beachfront options, and more budget-friendly guesthouses in the side streets that lead away from the beach.
