Premium Photography Tour: Temple, Camellias Island & More

2. Premium Photography Tour: Temple, Camellias Island & More

Start your tour with hotel pick-up and head to Dalmaji Road, a small walkway on the corner of Songjeong beach with beautiful cherry blossoms and pine trees. You will fall in love with the landscape of blue sea, sandy seashore, and clear sky. Next, visit Haedong Yonggungsa Temple, which is situated on the coast of the north-eastern portion of Busan. This superb attraction offers the rare find of a temple along the shore line; most temples in Korea are located in the mountains. The temple was first built in 1376 in the Koryeo Dynasty - see how many huge Buddhist statues you can spot! After the temple visit, take a walk at Haeundae Beach, the most famous beach in Korea where young people come to have fun and enjoy their summer vacation. After a nice local lunch of traditional Busan food, head off to Dogbaek Island, which is named after its blooming Camellias. You simply need to follow the walking path to enjoy all the picturesque spots of the island to take photos to share with your friends! You will also walk on the shoreline of Busan via the Oryukdo Sky Walk. If you are interested in Korean history, you can learn a little bit more about Korean War at UN Memorial with your guide's thorough explanation about its story. To experience the bustle of the city, you will be taken to Busan Cinema Center and Centum City Department Store to do local shopping, mingle with the people, and experience what it's like to live as a local of the city of Busan.

It was very well organized. Ktourstory was amazing and so were our guides (one of them is Nami). They gave just enough information (not too much like from schooltrips) about each destination and tourists spots. We also had enough time to visit each location except the Gamcheon Culture Village, which is located not too far from Busan train station. You can of course choose to stay longer and travel on your own afterwards so you can explore more the village.

Mira, the guide, was very friendly and happy to answer questions along the way. The sea views are beautiful and Mira made sure we did it the opposite way round to the crowds so we could enjoy the scenery. The beach is not that amazing and I would miss this to spend longer at Gamcheon village, which is gorgeous!

I had a great time. The local partner- Busan Tourism Center-organized the tour very well. The local guide-Beth-is very friendly, and an excellent tour guide.

Hayden was super. Excellent service. Very helpful and knowledgeable. Speaks good English Still waiting for the group pictures he promised

It was fun and the places was so beautiful. Especially the sea view at the temple. Thank you Mira and Sunny.
