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

This temple is a short walk from the Hilton Busan. Do not waste time with the shuttle bus if the staff suggest so, they did not seem to be aware of the coastal path that takes you straight to the temple via a much quieter...More

We came to Haedong Yonggungsa (Dragon temple of the eastern sea) for a change because it's the only temple in SK features a seaside location. Unfortunately, this is also the only feature of this place. The view of the sea is nice, but not much...More

The walk from the entrance to the temple is only 5-10 minutes downhill. You may walk further to see the ocean scenery. I didn’t go to fisheries science museum. I went to gamcheon cultural village then to jagalchi fish market... More

I'd also recommend the City Bus has 3 or 4 routes and take you to many spots along the way - hop on hop off. It's about 12,000 wan for the day ticket.
