Many friends and readers visited South Korea this year and posted beautiful cherry blossom photos on Facebook. It is causing me to reminisce about spring in Seoul and Busan. We’ve had our fair share of cherry blossom viewing this time last year at Dalmaji Hill which is located towards the end of Haeundae Beach.IMG_2017
Dalmaji Hill is full of character. There are plenty of old and mismatched buildings located at one side of the hill. At the same time, it is well known for its plethora of cafes which cater to young couples who come to enjoy a cup of coffee and the nice view of Haeundae Beach.

On days with clear skies, one can see Japan’s Daema Island  from this pavilion, we were told.  In Japan, they call it Tsushima, but in Korea the island is known as Daemado/Daema Island.

Dalmaji Hill is a one of the hip-pest area in Busan. The numerous upscale restaurants and cafes act as popular hangouts for the young crowds and local celebrities. The hippies also enjoy gallery hopping along the hill; while the long stretch of road attracts motorcyclists, outdoor sports enthusiasts, and hikers.

Dalmaji Hill boasts beautiful cherry blossoms and pine trees, which are located just beyond Haeundae Beach, on the slope of Mt.Wausan. The landscape, with the blue sea, sandy seashore, and pine trees, is beautiful enough to be the representative place of this area for a long time to come.

We love how Busan is kind of cold but really sunny and beautiful. It is like a perfect time to take a stroll down the road, either alone or with someone. We walked around for a while, before grabbing some coffees and toasts at Angel in Us Cafe.

The best thing about traveling on our own is that we can take it at our own pace. Sometimes if  we see a book that catches our eye, we’ll just sit down, have a cuppa and a wee read. Or we could spend one whole afternoon on people watching ;) .

  3. [...] Previous: Seoul + Busan Itinerary Day 6: Cherry Blossom @ Dalmaji Hill Haeundae Beach is located in the east of Busan. It is also probably the most popular and well know beach in South Korea. There are a lot of nice cafes, pubs, luxurious hotels and buildings along the beach. Haeundae beach is 1.5 km long and about 30 – 5o metres wide with golden sand. The beach is packed with people every summer. Some google images I saw show that the beach is packed to the brim with no spaces in between at all. On August 2nd, 2008 Haeundae Beach made an Official Record for the Guinness Book of Records for the most parasols on a beach! We love the beach so much. It is a great place to sit down and watch parents play with kids and people jog along the beach riding the cold wind past these windowed city towers. [...]
