Busan City Tour 2011

on 6 December 2011

In the last Saturday of last month (November 26th, 2011) I had a chance to have a Busan city tour held by International Office of Pusan National University. The tour route devided into two options; the first packet: City Hall → Busan Cinema Center → Nurimaru APEC House → Haeundae Beach → Busan Museum, the second packet: Jungang Park → Busan Modern History Museum → Songdo Beach → Dongsamdong Shell Midden Museum → Taejongdae. Whoever of the foreign students can join, me and my Indonesian friends choose the second packet tour.

This is my story… Enjoy!🙂

Jungang Park
Jungang Park is elevated on a mountain 197 meters above sea level. In Jungang Park we can find a 70-meter-tower named Chunghon Tower. The tower is dedicated to the loyal policeman and military personnel of Busan who fought and died for their independence. From the tower, we can see the harbor and surrounding.

Songdo Beach
Honestly I have to tell the truth that Senggigi beach (Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia) is much more beautiful than this beach. But in Songdo beach we can surf internet through free wi-fi that provided by Busan government🙂 And I meet some old men (just called them ahjussi) that gives me ice cream after knowing that I’m Indonesian. He said that he and his friends like Indonesian badminton players.

Dongsamdong Shell Midden Museum
In this museum we can see many artifacts from The Neolithic era (10,000 to 1,000 BC). Shell middens are the piles of shells that were discarded by the prehistoric people. People used shellfish as their food resource, and sometimes they made ornaments and tools out of the shell. Shell middens usually contain various kinds of animal bones, fish bones, plant remains, and prehistoric implements.

Taejongdae is a representative visitor attraction of Busan where has dense evergreen trees and several facilities for tourists such as an observatory, an amusement park, a light house, a cruise ship terminal. Taejongdae natural park consist of history park and romance park. By riding the shuttle bus we can take a look around the part of Taejongdae. We can walk but it will be spend a long time and energy of course😀
