Seoul and Busan Trip 2013 - Day 2 - Gwangalli Beach - Diamond Bridge

After a much needed rest, we head to Gwangalli Beach Area by subway, still using our 1 day metro subway pass, we alight at Gwangalli Beach Station.

We took exit 5 and walked all the way straight to the beach according to the map, took about 10 minutes walk.

According to the map, it will be shorter walk via Geumnyeonsan Station but I did not try that out.

It was so freezing cold that night, the temperature suddenly drop to 3 degrees.

Best to come to the beach at night to see the diamond bridge. There's should be a light show but am not sure the timing of the night show, we did not get to watch any light show that night. Busan City announced on November 21 that Gwangan Bridge’s English nickname would be “Diamond Bridge”, which sounds foreigner-friendly and represents the international aspirations of the city of Busan. Gwangan Bridge is becoming an internationally renowned tourist destination as a representative landmark of Busan. You can read more from source
