Mungyeongsaejae is the highest and toughest hill to hike on the Yeongnamdaero, which connects the Han River and Nakdong River area over Joryeong Mountain on the Bekdudaegan range. Seajae means the hill is so high, even birds find it difficult to overcome. Mungyeongsaejae has splendid scenic views and is famous for its historical heritage and folk tales and songs. It has long been regarded an important region for social, cultural, and economic distribution as well as a strategic military location. You can also enjoy water-sledding in Mungyeong to escape from the hot summer temperatures.
A very popular place among tourists, at Yonggung Temple, ocean waves crash onto the rocks just below the spot where you can see spectacular sunrises.
One of the “must visit” destinations for visitors to Busan, Haeundae Beach offers a relaxing break and a chance to re-energize. Let the warm waves refresh your tired soul and wash away all your troubles. While there, you can also visit Nurimaru APEC House, which was built to host the APEC Summit held in 2005. The name “Nurimaru” is the combination of two Korean words: “nuri” meaning the world and “maru” meaning summit. The site was considered by many who attended the summit to be the most beautiful of all the meeting places.
