The Guangan Bridge

The Guangan Bridge (광안대교) is a suspension bridge located in Busan Metropolitan City, connecting Busan Haeundae District and Shuiying District.

The total length of the Guangan Bridge is 7.42 kilometers, which is the second longest bridge in Korea after the Incheon Bridge.

The purple light makes it shine at night. This is also where famous stars shoot advertisements.

I was standing on Haeundae Cinema Street and took a photo of  the Guangan Bridge.

Haeundae Cinema Street is a place to see handprints of well-known filmmakers and various film-related installation arts. Along the road, you can see the introduction of Korean movies and enjoy the beautiful scenery of  the Gwangan Bridge! It’s a very nice place for young couples and lovers to have a walk at night.


Huinnyeoul Culture Village—-An artist villiage.

It was originally a shelter, and it turned out to be an artist village under planning by the government since 2012.

I like the small image on the wall.

You could walk along the village or walk along the seashore.






The Bay 101—–Shopping Mall at Waterfront

It’s a good place to see the night view of Busan. There are shopping mall, restaurants, and coffee shops. It’s good to sit here and enjoy summer breezes at night.
