Spring in Busan.
Fortunately when i got well , weather turns slightly warmer and cherry blossoms were everywhere .
We went on a family trip to Jinhae which is an hour drive away. Jinjae oppa ( my bf’s brother ) took day off so that he can bring me there to see cherry blossoms. So kind of him and he is a really cool guy. He is tall , with a stable job at the top life insurance company in Korea , has a bachelor pad and is a really nice guy. Lol..any single ladies out there ?
Jinhae is an hour drive away from Busan. It is famous for its cherry blossoms at Romance Bridge and the railway station. I am really lucky to see full bloom cherry blossoms on that day because after that day , it rained EVERYDAY till the day i departed from Gimhae airport.
Of cos , you can see cherry blossoms in Busan too. The cherry blossoms lined up along the streets and the best place to see them in Busan is at Namcheon-dong. There is this particular street that looks really nice with the cherry blossoms.
Ok , back to Jinhae.
Jinhae is a small town so you can just spend few hours there. We spent like 3 hours there before we went for lunch and back to Busan.
Jinhae is very crowded during Cherry Blossom Festival in Spring . People and tourist flocked here to see the cherry blossoms , have picnic under the trees and take a stroll along the river canal.
There are both white and pinkish cherry blossoms. All so nice ! And just next to this place is a HUGE mountain.
The backdrop looks damn nice.
After spending 3 hours taking a stroll and pictures of the pretty cherry blossoms , Jinjae oppa drove us to a restaurant located near the base of a mountain and along the coast for the nicest and freshest live eel bbq !
At night , we drove up to Mount Hwangnyeong. It is the best place to see sunset in Busan. But we were at the premium outlets in the evening and can only go here at night. It was very cold.
Not only do you get to see beautiful Busan’s sunset here but you can get to see 360 degrees view of the entire Busan. It is located near Namcheon station so you can put your cherry blossoms sight seeing and sunset viewing on the same afternoon.
How to get here ?
Take MRT to Namcheon station (exit 4) and then take bus number 38 to Hwangnyeong mountain or you can cab there.

Gwangan bridge is brightly lighted.

We were all cold and hungry. It was 10pm and we went to the famous “Hae Mae Ddokbokki” at Namcheon for dinner. This place is famous for its noodle soup and Ddokbokki. It is cheap and nice. The soup is free flow too. It is a humble street stall located at a back alley.
All of us were dead tired and too tired and zonked out once we arrived home in Seomyeon !
