Busan, South Korea

Haeundae is in the eastern part of Busan. These residentials have a nice southerly view of the ocean.

Haeundae Beach stretches 1.5 km along the coast with fine, white sand. The beach hosts an annual sand sculpture festival as well as the Busan International Film Festival.

Dongbaekseom Island is a serene forested oasis next to the beach. Hike along the trails the hug along the coast, where you will see opportunistic fishermen trying to catch some ocean bounty.

APEC leaders met here in 2005, with a commanding view of Gwangan Bridge and the beautiful sunset.

By late September, the waters would be too cold for swimming already.

The Smart Beach system allows users to purchase vouchers for locker rooms, showers, and ther accessories using their mobile phones or credit cards.
