I truly enjoyed the beautiful morning sight from my hostel as I could see the Busanhangdaegyo Bridge and Yeongdo Island. But that’s not the only sight I saw this morning.
I went to Bukcheon Cultural Village and was amazed by the view of the colourful painted houses. Truly a spectacular sight with the ocean as a backdrop. Definitely checked off my bucket list.
There is so much to see and do in this village including trinket shops and foods to eat! A lot of street art and I nearly got lost in the maze in this colourful village. It was a sunny day too so I headed to this rooftop cafe to drink in more of this view. Plus, it’s good to support locals as they’re allowing us to roam around their hometown for free!
Afterwards, I headed to BIFF which was on the way back to my hostel. When I arrived, I turned off my Wi-Fi and just walked around the vicinity. I explored the market, shops and street foods around the area for hours, Gwangbongno Fashion Streets, and even went to Nampo underground shopping mall. Here I found a shop selling winter sweaters for 6000 won each! I bought a few because a lot of the styles were ahjumma style, but if you search hard enough there’s some that’s suitable for young adults 🙂
That’s the thing, you need patience for shopping and that’s my virtue 😂 one of the main things I wanted to get was a brand new wallet that’s suitable to my style. And today was the day I found it! I bargained a few thousand wons off and bought two! One for my mum and for myself. They’re super fashionable and they’re leather!
No shoes today unfortunately. I couldn’t find sandals as they’re all selling winter items.
I came back to BIFF at night to have Busan’s notable ssiat hotteok! I love it! It’s sweet and crunchy at the same time, satisfying my taste buds! There’s so many street foods here but I wanted a warm room to sit and eat, so I went to a Japanese restaurant for katsu! I love how they provided Korean side dishes in a Japanese restaurant 😄
I even went to hair salons asking for prices as I was thinking of dying my hair and they all quoted me $350+!! ($400+ including treatment.) No way am I spending that much for my hair just for around 2 weeks of colour.
