TOP 3: SEASIDE MUSTS
TAJEONGDAE RESORT PARK:
Situated at the far end of Yeongdo
Island, Tajeongdae Resort Park is where the sea meets the sea — violently: strolling under a canopy of pines, visitors can watch the waves explode on gargantuan rock forms. This is nature in action, just a 15-minute taxi ride from Nampo-dong.
HAEDONG YONGGUNG TEMPLE:
From its rocky perch above the shore — where the ancient stone of the Korean peninsula makes its last stand before the sea — Haedong Yonggung Temple watches over the East Sea like a sentinel. This is Busan’s secondmost-famous Buddhist temple, with an ornate yet rugged beauty.
SONGDO MARINE CABLE CAR:
In recent years, Songdo, Busan’s first official municipal beach, has undergone a remarkable makeover. This includes a state-ofthe-art cable-car that carries visitors across the water to Amnam Park, where they can enjoy panoramic views of the city.
