3 days 2 Night in Busan, South Korea

We have decided to visit Busan first before heading to the city of Seoul because we have this mindset - 'ahh, there are not a lot of places to discover in Busan'. Clearly, I was wrong because when I came back to Malaysia and see all the show on TvNthere are still λ§Žμ΄ things to do. So, here's my complete information on the hotel, food, shopping and places that I get to visit.


KOREA BUSAN GAMCHEON VILLAGE CURITAN AQALILI
Busan Gamcheon Cultural Village!

1. Hotel No.25 πŸ¨ 

The moment I recall back about this hotel, I remembered we found a condom! We laughed so hard and were like 'is this a love hotel?'. In my mind, I was like 'yea obviously' the condom is the answer to that question but I don't want to said it out loud to avoid an awkward situation.

Aside from giving a protection, the facilities provided by the hotel are pretty complete for travellers. Plus, the staff speak English, so thumbs up for that!

INFORMATION:
β„Ή️ Hotel No.25 Sasang
πŸ“ 12, Hakgam-daero 237 beon-gil, Sasang-gu, 46986 Busan, Korea.

2. Haeundae Beach (ν•΄μš΄λŒ€ν•΄μˆ˜μš•μž₯) πŸ“Έ

To be honest, the hotel is a bit far from the main attractions but we have a reason for it. The reason we stay there because...we need to catch a flight to Jeju. So, without wasting any time, we go straight to the place that pops out every time I searched about Busan - Haeundae.

Imagine you can see the beach in the middle of a city full of buildings and I'm pretty into it. Especially I came at the right time where all the umbrella filled up the beach! Because it's a popular summer vacation spot, the local people put on their swimsuit, bring all the good snacks and rent the umbrella for the perfect summer getaway.

INFORMATION:
β„Ή️ Haeundae Beach 
πŸ“ 264, Haeundaehaebyeon-ro, Haeundae-gu, Busan.
πŸ•° Open all year round.
πŸ’Έ KRW 1,500 train fare by card.

3. Haeundae Market (λΆ€μ‚° ν•΄μš΄λŒ€μ „ν†΅μ‹œμž₯) πŸ“Έ

Socks is a must thing to buy in Korea, you can't find a wide choice of design anywhere but here. And at the end of the day, I brought back around 3 pairs of socks which for the first day are insane.

There are also fresh vegetables and tteokbokki that you can enjoy. I believe Busan rice cakes are really spicy and big that absorb all the goodness. I bought one to tried but eat at your own risk because there is no information regarding Halal ingredients whatsoever.

INFORMATION:
β„Ή️ Haeundae Market

4. Hello India Al-Waha (ν—¬λ‘œ 인디아 μ•Œμ™€ν•˜πŸ₯˜

Walking around the beach made me hungry especially when we go out straight without resting. This area is actually famous with the big sign of fish cake (eomuk), but we decided to grab some dinner that served Indian and middle eastern dishes at Hello India Al-Waha.

We expected the prices to be around KRW12,000 or more which it was. But, I felt really relax where we enjoy our dinner without taking pictures of the food. Plus, the view from the second floor is the best.

INFORMATION:
β„Ή️ Hello India Al-Waha

5. Gwanggalli Beach (κ΄‘μ•ˆλ¦¬ν•΄μˆ˜μš•μž₯) πŸ“Έ 

My one and only aim here is to see the LED Busan Gwangandaegyo Bridge (λΆ€μ‚° κ΄‘μ•ˆλŒ€κ΅). If you come here during the nighttime, I suggest you to visit one of the cafes nearby, sit at the balcony and enjoy the colourful light show.

There are tons of couple that sit around and just chit-chatting, and I would love to do that because the beach is really clean and I'm pretty sure the water is pristine too. So, bring a beach towel and just chillax. But, if you love a city vibe walk inside to the building area and explore more!

6. Namil Bar (λ‚¨μΌλ°”πŸ“Έ 

When I went to Busan, I said to myself let's visit at least one film location of K-Drama which I did and visited Namil Bar! It's like a dream came true because I love rooftop and the view is BREATHTAKING.

Thank god I have a supportive mom and brother to follow me around and do crazy things like climbing the stairs. I'm so grateful for that. If you want to know more about my experiences to Namil Bar, click here.

7. Busan Gamcheon Cultural Village (λΆ€μ‚° κ°μ²œλ¬Έν™”λ§ˆμ„) πŸ“Έ 

Say Machu Pichu two times faster and you will always remember this colourful village in Busan! It's a must place to visit in the city because they have wonderful mural and shops around the residential area. 

There are a few hotspots for you to take a picture but I personally like the 'cradle' part because I can see the whole village. For me, do take your time stroll around the village as it's really huge, so make sure to enjoy the street food, art store and get a stamp! 


INFORMATION:
β„Ή️ Busan Gamcheon Culture Village
πŸ“ 203, Gamnae 2-ro, Saha-gu, Busan Korea.
πŸ•° March - November : 09.00AM - 6.00PM, December - February: 09.00AM - 5.00PM

8. Jagalchi Fish Market (λΆ€μ‚° μžκ°ˆμΉ˜μ‹œμž₯πŸ₯˜

Nothing is great than visited a fresh market full of seafood and eat right there! We actually survey which restaurant we should try and end up at μ›μ‘°μžμ—°μ‚°νšŸμ§‘ (original sashimi store). If you find a blue signboard like the picture below, get in there because it's worth it. 

We actually ordered seafood stew and fried fish. It was a really fulfilling lunch and less crowded because we came really early at that time. I love the side dishes (banchan) so much that I nearly want to bring back some home. I heard their speciality is king crab and sashimi, so make sure to try that too! 

After that, we decided to take a stroll along the market. I found one stall that sells different types of marinated side dishes and the other with big octopus. But, I'm kind of miss one thing to eat which is a raw octopus called sannakji, if you have tried there let me know how it tastes like.

INFORMATION:
β„Ή️ Jagalchi Market
πŸ“ 52, Jagalchihaean-ro, Jung-gu, Busan, Korea.
πŸ•° Open at 5.00AM - 9.00PM. Closed on First & Third Tuesday of every month.
πŸ’Έ KRW 14,000 for the lunch.

9. BIFF Square (BIFF κ΄‘μž₯ (ꡬ, PIFF κ΄‘μž₯)πŸ₯˜ 

Before we headed to Jeju for 3 nights, I wanted to explore Busan for one last time. I heard you will find tons of streets food at BIFF during night time but you can also grab some during morning too! So, we grab hotteok twice and shrimp burgers from Lotteria.

My mom really loves the hotteok (ν˜Έλ–‘) a sweet pancake that filled with mix nuts. Awesome to grab this during winter but just as lovely during summer. After we get our breakfast/lunch fix, we head to the Nampodong underground market to window shopping. So far, the price was not bad but I didn't get anything and saving up to shop in Seoul.

INFORMATION:
β„Ή️ BIFF Square
πŸ“ 20, BIFF gwangjang-ro, Jung-gu, Busan, Korea.
πŸ•° Open all year round but may vary to certain stall.
