if you ask me which is a place you should not miss in Busan, I would 100% recommend Taejongdae (unless it rains for your whole trip then sucks to be you. =P.)

to come here, you must.. take the bus. it isn’t that hard. you can take a bus straight from Busan Station. I forgot the number of the bus but it is written at the Bus Station just remember to have your T-Money filled before you get to Busan (because T-Money is usable there, just a little harder to find place to recharge it.) Busan have their own railway so they have their own T-Money alike thingy there too. if you buy that on the spot there then yes you may recharge your pass whenever you want.

awkward smile with 2 dozen of tourists looking at me while the tour guide was explaining something about the stone (completely ignored them!)

there is 2 options, one, you hike. another, you take the tram.

but for 1,5000won, TAKE THE TRAM! it stops like 4 times so you can get off every stop but I would recommend you to only get off the stop where…. everyone gets off at because that’s the place most worth seeing. others….. well, if you have a lot of time you may go to the others too.

weird smile of mine =S. got off at the stop where we are supposed to see Japan if the weather is clear.

can you see JAPAN?! those blurry shadows at the end of the horizon.

I don’t know if you can see it but it was noticeable to the naked eye. I am just a real lousy photographer. the weather was pretty foggy as well though.

Choi Ji Woo’s Love Story in Busan’s photo exhibition. she’s so beautifully aged. and the photographer is amazing.

super cute. used to watch her on TV when I was 10. that’s when Winter Sonata played on NTV7. although I did not follow up but I think she grew much more beautiful now.

that’s… not Japan.

and from there, it’s just walking distance to the main attraction.

my journey down the cliff. it was pretty scary. especially when I wasn’t wearing sport shoes.

IMG_4552 copy

and the REAL CLIFF. this Leo is really crazy. he literally sat BY the cliff. one wrong foot and he’ll be swimming in the sea pfft.

IMG_4619 copy

I was very scared but I loved the picture I took for him so he lured me to go sit there together with him. mad Leo is mad.

IMG_4625 copy

a picture I risked my life for! T_T.

IMG_4616 copy

more spam.

look so short haha. but look at the stones!! it wasn’t too easy walking here. NEVER wear heels or anything other than sport shoes or comfortable and durable slippers here. you don’t wanna slip here. there are sharp edges everywhere!

IMG_4634 copy

flash. haha. because my face came out rather dark in most pictures. had to use flash!

IMG_4654 copy

the layers that I fell in love with. hence the reason why you should visit Taejongdae. it’s for its absolute natural beauty.

IMG_4661 copy

well the man made red-blue thing with needle look pretty attractive as well.

IMG_4662 copy

just to warn you, walking down to the cliff is pretty tough. a lot of steps and it was pretty steep as I’ve remembered. best to not bring young kids or elderly here. unless you want to spend hours just carrying them on the steps.

    So besides the view, what else can you do here? Are there any good restaurants? How long is this visit here worth? A few hours?

    it’s basically just the view and some temples and stops. =). it takes about 40mins to an hour to get here I think. it isn’t that far. I took the bus so it might take longer as it doesn’t go fast and it keeps stopping =D. I would say it’s worth it if you can walk!
