Seoul Hiking Nature Group

Hi! All~!

The time is passing by so fast and glorious 2016 this year will pass soon and exciting new year is coming!

Why don't we go on some special trip to have time to celebrate the last day of 2016 and the New Year in beautiful Geoje island and Busan?

On this trip we will have some revitalizing time in Geoje island and exploring hidden jem of Busan! And also we can have time to cherish our wish on sunrise over ocean!

Geoje island is 2nd largest island in korea and connected with the longest underwater tunnel and with bridge to Busan,

We leave seoul Friday at midnight and wake up with the sound of ocean in Geoje at around 6AM!

Some people can sleep more on the bus and for those who wants to hike up for last sunrise of this year, I will take the lead to one of the peak(Nojasan,565 meter high) for an hour to see it with the stunning view of numorous islands! we can have some time of forgetting lots of things that we regret and forgive the things we didn't yet this year!

after hiking, we will warm up with some coffee and muffin and we will take you to the harbor where you can take an fun-exciting excursion ship to the Oedo botanical island which is absolutely breathtaking and wonderful and have relaxing time of walking around the garden!(Or alternative, Jangsado Camellia Island)

And then we will have free time at the well-known Windhill where is famous for beautiful rock formation and clear water and also we can find diverse restaurants for our lunch.

We will head back to Busan after wonderful Geoje island, on the way we will have a sweet nap on the bus for an hour and then stop by a beach which is well-known for the beautiful sunset over ocean in Busan!

Then, we head to Haeundae beach where we stay a night,after having a dinner together, we can explore the seacoast(Dongbaekseom) ,Haeundae Beach, Udong Traditional Market and bar street~!

After long exciting day, there will be a bell-ringing somewhere at a bar together,let's have a celebration drink! But don't drink too much as we will not miss the sunrise next day! Beach is right close from our hostel, let's have a warm coffee and hold a candle(we will prepare) and take a walk to beach! There should be some event Busan goverment prepared, such as having Ddeokguk(ricecake떡국) as it's traditional thing, some traditional playing, music event as day get brighter!

This is not the end of our event,after checking out, we will drop by Eulsukdo Island which is the most immigrant birds from Siberia stop by on the way to down south, we will transfer to electronic vehicle which has no sound and we can get closer to birds and can see them with big telescope!

This trip will be really meaningful and revitalising to celebrate the New Year and would be perfect after stressful day of working and drinking days!

So, don't miss it! Spread the word!

♣ SOME AWESOME THINGS YOU MAY WANT TO DO IN BUSAN: (your choice and can get help from trip leader)

-Busan is always crazy traffic busy on the weekends, so taking the subway is strongly recommended. You could also take a taxi for a short distance. The easiest way though would to be to walk and get exercise and see more!

A. JANGSAN MOUNTAIN: (장산,Best view to Haeundae,especially sunrise and night view) (2hour)

we don't have to go all the way to tower or pay money to take the elevator up! The mountain is right behind the subway station and is similar to the mountains in Seoul, commanding great views of the city, especially the whole area of Haeundae. Just walking for 30 minutes up through the village, passing a temple and paths in the mountain would still be worth doing if you don't want to do the whole hike!

B. HAEUNDAE TRADITIONAL MARKET: taste local food!(1~2hour)

the Haeundae area is famous for the market alleys. You can find several 소머리국밥 "someori gugbap" (beef stew with rice) places. You can pretty much walk in to any restaurant into a crowd of people all eating this same style stew! On the walls there are usually a bunch of autographed photos of celebrities in the restaurant. There are of course other choices, but this is the only stew with rice in it or rice on the side.

Or, if you're feeling more adventurous and want to taste something more unusualy, you can try 선지 해장국 "seonji Haejangguk." This is a stew made with beef blood jelly. Sounds gross but actually really good!

C. CENTUM CITY & BUSAN FILM FESTIVAL: (2~4hour) -from Haeundae station by subway 15 mintues)

Busan has the monstrously huge Centum City Department store - which won the Guinness Book of World Record for biggest in the world in 2009! You can see the awarded monument in front of Shinsaegae. Here, there is one of the biggest saunas in Korea, Spa Land (스파 랜드) If you're a fan of saunas, this is a must-do! Very near Centum city (a block walking) there is the facility which holds the well known Busan Film Festival. The architecture of the cinema alone is worth visiting. If this part interests you, there will be film exhibitions happening over the weekend as well as some performance. (Check for details)


자갈치 and 태종대: (4~6hour, subway from Haeundae by 1 hour)

- Jagalchi fish market is a great place to feel the vivid energy of coastal life. Here you can explore not only the market but nearby there is also 광복동 "Gwangbokdong" fashion street, 남포동 "Nampodong" which is kind of the old downtown Busan. If you want to enjoy the view from the hill, just walk up towards 용두산 "Yongdusan" Park. You will see a statue of admiral Lee Sun Shin . As the lord high admiral of the Korean fleet under the Chosun Dynasty, Lee Sun Shin led the fight against the Japanese during their invasion of Korea in 1592. Busan was hit the hardest by the Japanese invasion and occupation being the closet port to Japan.

After that, you can take the city bus to 태종대 "Taejongdae" Marine Park (about 40min by city bus). Here, you can enjoy a pebble beach where there should be tents selling live-octupus, hiking paths, and a stroll to a lighthouse.


(4~5 hour, 1hour by subway)

Hiking starts from Beomeosa station where there is a trail to the temple. At the top, you can hike a loop which will take about 3 hours (very light hiking). This way, you can take more time to explore the mountain area around the fortress.

Geumjeongsan is kind of like the "Bukhansan" of Seoul -very popular, many trails, and any of the trails take you back to some part of the city, so even if you get lost, you can explore and end up finding more interesting places. You can walk along the ridges of Geumjeongsan for 1~2 hour. There is also a trail which leads you to 금강공원 "Geumgang gongwon" (park). Here, there is cable car to the top. The bottom of the park where the cable car starts is the 온천동 "Oncheondong" (spa town) or well-known for 동래온천 "Dongrae oncheon". All the roads are lined with spa motels, and here also is one of the oldest and biggest in Busan. The closest subway station to this area is Dongrae(동래)station.

F. OBSERVATORY & EULSUKDO ISLAND -을숙도: Eulsukdo Island (2 hour, 1 hour 10 min)

Where the end of Nakdong river merges into the ocean is an excellent spot for bird watching. Here, many birds rest during their long migration, and we can check them out in the observatory. There is also the new Nakdong estuary eco center 낙동하구체험센터. You will have a good chance to feel, see, and taste some of local culture here. The closest subway station is Sinpyeong station (신평역).


(2 hours, subway ride 1hour)

This untouched (for 30-40 years) town is located within a steep hill and is far from downtown. It is similar to 개미마을village in Seoul. Winding roads in a valley crevice full of colorfully painted houses and murals. A super interesting contrast of old and new. And the whole village has a view of the ocean- so all the houses are densely crammed into a small space! You can start your tour here from Jagalchi station(자갈치역) or Toseong(토성) station.

♣ Haedong Yonggungsa Temple

is situated on the coast of the north-eastern portion of Busan. This superb find of a tourist spot and temple offers visitors the rare find of a temple along the shore line. Most temples in Korea are located in the mountains. Haedong Yonggungsa Temple was first built in 1376 during the Goryeo Dynasty. During the reign of Uwang, the great Buddhist teacher known as Naong established this temple beside the sea. Haesu Gwaneum Daebul (Seawater Great Goddess Buddha), Daeungjeon Main Sanctuary, Yongwangdang Shrine, Gulbeop Buddhist Sanctum (enclosed in a cave), and a three-story pagoda with four lions can all be seen looking out over the ocean.

♣ Taejongdae Resort

Designated as a Busan monument, along with Oryukdo Island, Taejongdae (태종대) represents Busan, and is especially famous for its rock beach. Featuring its highest peak at 250 meters, there are forests of pine trees and other 200 varieties of trees. Taejongdae was named after the 29th king of Silla Dynasty BC57~AD 935), King TaeJong Mu-Yeol (604~661). King TaeJong had traveled to many places but this was the place he enjoyed shooting arrows. Under the lighthouse of this resort is a rock called Sinseon Rock, named after the myth that gods and goddesses came down here to relax. At this rock is a figure called Mangbuseok, named after the story of a woman who waited for her husband who had been taken to Japan. Taejongdae is also famous for the ritual of praying for rain, performed when there are droughts, and rain on the 10th of lunar May is called the 'Taejong Rain'. On days with clear skies you can see Japan’s Daema Island from the observatory.
