My hand now looks like a wrinkly apple with an attitude problem, but the pain’s almost gone so hopefully I’ll be able to resume my workouts tomorrow! 

Anyway, we visited the ancient Haedong Yonggungsa temple recently. First built in 1376 (and my little sister calls me old!) and situated on a cliff by the sea, the views you get are breathtaking. 

Here’s the entrance from the car park:


On the way to the temple proper, you’ll come across many vendors on either side of the narrow path selling souvenirs and unique (and a little overpriced) snacks.


The weather was really nice. I just suck at taking good pictures.


This was pretty good, actually. 


Gets pretty crowded on the weekends.

Totally worth it.


There’s also a trail that leads you directly to Songjeong Beach. Definitely trying this out next time I’m there. 

Hopefully I’ll be able to return at least one more time before we leave.

Getting there:
We drove there, but if you’re going by bus, as per the Visit Korea site, take the subway to Haeundae Station (Busan Subway Line 2), and then head to Exit 7. Take Bus 181 and get off at Yonggungsa Temple Bus Stop.

It’s still a bit of a trek to get to the entrance though, so if you have leg problems, it’s best to pay a bit for a cab to drop you off.
