After welcoming 2017 on Busan’s Haeundae Beach, we headed to Haedong Yonggungsa Temple, the city’s most famous. Welcome to week 311 (1/19/2017) of Travel Photo Thursday.

We’re pretty easy going here at BTS, but please remember to follow a few guidelines.

Busan

New Year’s Eve saw me heading to Busan, Korea’s second-largest city and leaving the out-of-this-world blue ocean views of Goeje Island. Welcome to week 310 (1/12/2017) of Travel Photo Thursday. Busan was the second destination on my new year weekend adventure with Seoul Hiking. You can find the Goeje Island post, our first destination, here.

We left Goeje Island late in the afternoon on new year’s eve, arriving in downtown Busan about 1.5 hours later at around 5:30 pm. Off the bus, and we were immediately weaving our way through the narrow streets to get a birds-eye view of Busan’s beautiful Christmas lights.

This magnificent Christmas tree is the focal point, and we were awed as it changed colors every few minutes.
