Adventures in South Korea: Water Temple, Busan

3 Aug

 

So you make it to Busan, in my case I stayed in Hongdae (there you can enjoy the beach and the clubs but more on that later). The place of attraction was the water temple, the only temple that has had it’s structure shaped by water since it is so near the ocean. You can take a bus I actually took a cab to this place. Just say you want to go to Yonggungsa.

There is a small souvenir and food market before the actual entrance of the temple, where you can get some delicious munching food, jewelry, wind chimes, and works of art. all worth looking at.

Once you get to this part have your coins ready if you make it to the turtle you will have your wish granted but it takes quite a bit of aim.

Even though it was raining (and I made the huge mistake of not having anything but flip flops so i nearly met my death by slippery rock stairs) but even though it all looked beautiful and the Buddhist prayers were calming. This is a place to feel at peace with the world, and I imagine that it looks better when the days are sunny. There is a train that runs to this location but I did not have enough time to take it. Safe travels and always have sturdy shoes.
