Oh gosh it’s been a year plus since I last updated my South Korea Trip. I’m sorry for not updating my trip and my blog for so long because I just not feeling it (to write). But here I am (maybe I’m back for good) and who wants to read my exciting trip to Busan? As you know, Busan is well known for its beautiful white sand beach with seagulls flying around. Let’s explore the SEA Life Aquarium, Haeundae Beach and Gwangalli Beach in Busan!

Where were we the last time? Right, we just arrived safely in Busan from Seoul by the KTX train then we straight head to our guesthouse in Beomnaegol. We were so tired after that so we end up relaxing in this cozy guesthouse.
SOUTH KOREA TRIP 2016 DAY 7
SEA LIFE AQUARIUM
We start out our day pretty good actually. Lets skip the part when we were having a little bit trouble finding the subway station, but eventually we arrived! We walked past few shops and road (they were lots of vehicle and the traffic was terribly bad during day and night), we also stumble upon quite number of old folks here and they were so friendly. What I can say is, they were much friendlier than in Seoul.
Direction to Sea Life Aquarium – By subway Line 2 Haeundae Station Exit #5 (take around 40 mins)
After the long walk while eating onigiri and seaweed and banana milk on the other hand along the way we finally reached to the destination. The Sea Life Aquarium is just near the beach. There were lots of hotels, shops and restaurant along the way to Haeundae Beach.
We are pretty much hungry after just a quick breakfast at the guesthouse and we were dare enough to try out some Punjab food. Do note that it wasn’t easy to find Halal food to eat here in Busan. So when we found something like “Punjab Halal Restaurant” we say let’s give it a try!
So much of Indian vibes here makes me wonder where I am right now. Haha. But finally here comes the delicious curry and tandori chicken. The food was superb! I am licking my fingers tasting the curry to the max. If you want to try out this restaurant it is located at “3 층, 1393-31 중동, Jung 1(il)-dong, Haeundae-gu, Busan”. And now I know this is the #1 Halal food in Busan. Wow, we made a great choice.
Tummy full now it’s the time to sea fishes! Along the way we already smell the beaches haha. The SEA Life Aquarium have over 35,00 species of fish, algae, reptiles and amphibians. I am not a fans of fishes but all the fishes are pretty here! The entrance fees cost 19,000 won. There are lot of special show so don’t miss seeing any of those.
Now let’s go outdoor and feel the breeze.
If you love beach you will love Haeundae Beach. If you guys remember, just weeks before, CHABA typhoon strikes Busan and Haendae Beach was affected. We can see they were leftover damages around the corner but it wasn’t that bad. There were people swimming here and seagulls flying around. That’s when I know yeah we are here in Busan (speaking in Busan dialect).
We left Haeundae Beach and travel to the next destination.
Direction to Gwangalli Beach – By subway Line 2 Gwangan Station exit 5. Just follow the directional signs on the pavement, pointing to the beach & walk for about 5-10 min.
Along the beach you can see a pretty long bridge across. We sat there (eating and relaxing) till night and excited to see the light show along the bridge.
That’s the end of Day 7 in Busan. We had so much fun strolling by the beach and can’t wait for the next day to come. See you in the next post, another exciting part in Busan is coming!
