  • The Island Bridge opens at 2 15 a day, and the bridge has an adorable sea seagull, and the bridge is played with Busan songs, but it's not long, but it's still a photo shoot.

  • This is Busan, one of the famous bridges that can be developed to allow the ship to pass, although it is no longer necessary, but still remain for the performance, let people appreciate its special point. You'll stop the car before you close it, visitors can walk to the center of the Horse Road, completely erector Spinae to take a while, very strong view, and this time to see printed on the bridge on behalf of Busan's Sea seagull picture, like flying in the sky, we can take pictures.

  • Some of the bridges will be raised at noon, either in front of the bridge or on the top of the Lotte, where Wangdu has a model.

  • Yeongdodaegyo Bridge (oh wow, that was a handful to type) connects Busan’s mainland to the Yeongdo district on Yeongdo Island. It’s the first bridge that connected the island to the mainland. In its proximity to the ports, the bridge would lift to allow large ships to pass under it and people would gather here just to watch. Strange but true. The Yeongdodaegyo do have a sad history it it. During the Korean War, many Koreans flea to Busan. As the mass migration occur, Busan became a refugee city for Koreans. They will wait at this bridge, looking out to the mainland to see if their families and friends were fortunate enough to escape. I hate to think about war, and the effects it would have on me if I was ever caught in the middle of one. But I do know this, I would do exactly what the Koreans would have done, wait on this bridge in the hopes of seeing family and friends again.
  • Yeongdodaegyo bridge, Busan. At 2pm everyday this bridge comes up and allows large ships to pass through. In times past, people would gather around this spectacle as they thought the raised bridge was pointing towards the heavens. Now, this can be viewed from the observatory floor at Lotte Mart (Nampo station).
  • Nice to see here when 2PM... I believe that the bascule bridge is one of the best attractions this ocean city Busan. Flying gulls over the bridge are attractive.
  • Don't miss the bridge opening at 2 every day
  • Beautiful view

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.
