Travelogue: Nampodong-Yongdusan Park


Busan is like a mirror image of Seoul. There are attractions in Busan that are very similar and can rival those in Seoul. Nampodong is Busan's version of Myeongdong and Yongdusan Park is Busan's version of Namsan Park.


After our visit to Haedong Yonggung Temple, my mom and I decided to look around Nampodong. Because we weren't able to find a money changer anywhere, we still decided to go here as there may be shops that would accept credit card. True enough, most shops here do accept credit card. After a few minutes of walking in the small alleys of Nampodong, we managed to find 3 money changers that are open even if it was a Sunday. We only exchanged a few US dollars because it will be our last day tomorrow and we already did a few shopping. But next time we go here, we know where to exchange our money.

Yongdusan Park, where Busan Tower is located, is within Nampodong so we decided to go up there after shopping. It was already dark and becoming really chilly so we only spent a few minutes here. There were very few people so taking pictures without any "photo-bombers" was a treat. It looks exactly like what we saw in Namsan Park minus the bell.

    1. It is! A photo bomber is someone who is not supposed to be in the picture but is there because of certain circumstances.

    1. I miss it too though it's only been a month since I went there. I like Seoul more than Busan. Though Busan has its own charm, there are more tourist attractions in Seoul. Also, shopping is so much fun in Seoul!

  14. OMG!!! Amazing place :o

    Seriously? Thank you!
    A lot of people don't like. The prints are nonetheless: or love or hate each other. I really like patterned and don't see evil when men wear them, since discreetly. :D

    1. You don't need a lot of money to go there! Wait for Cebu Pacific's promo fare! It should only cost you 3-4k! :)
