We were used the local bus to get to the temple which was easy and will save you a lot, once we got there it was pretty special, the waves crashing on the rocks below and the monk chanting swept you away from your day...More
We took Metro Line 2 to Haeundae Station and then took bus 181 (about 20min ride). It is imperative that your download Naver Maps as it will give you all the transport options.
Once you get off your stop, it still about a 10-15min walk...More
