We visited Gwanganli Beach at night, using the subway (Line 2, Geumnyeonsan, Exit 1) to get there. The Busan subway system is very simple to use and I highly recommend it to anyone traveling there. It was a clear, warm night, and it was fun...More

Not that far, you can take train or buses, off course with taxi as well. Allocate 45mins for travelling between Gwangalli to downtown, and at least 1:!5hrs to the airport. For me, mainly to explore the city downtown area... More
