Solo Day 1 South Korea - 21st Nov 2014 (Busan)

             Unbelievable that post korea yang sebelum nih pun tak habes tulis, aku dah repeat trip korea sekali lagi. Agak memalukan sikit di situ.. =P tapi kali ini aku bersemangat nak tulis sebab aku ingt in details all my expenses masa kat sana sebab trip kali ini aku bergerak secara solo..yup, solo.. =) so aku nak la share serba sedikit my one and only experience kat sana. aku rasa happy and fortunate giler sebab still dapat catch up the autumn foliage (thou they said it was the leftover but doesnt matter).. travel date from 21st Nov 2014 to 30th Nov 2014.. Walaupun ada sedikit frust sebab the next day after aku arrived KL,the first snow falls in Seoul which is on 1st Dec 2014), tapi takpe la..dapat tengok autumn pun dah rasa bersyukur...
I wanna make my post short, simple and informative. I hope you guys gain something out of these.

Day 1- 21st Nov 2014

Arrived at Gimhae International Airport. It is just a small airport. Nothing much can you do here. Not many shop lots. I purchase T money and took subway to Busan City.

Upon arrival, I headed straight to Mr Egg Original Hostel, Nampo. Jungang Station Exit 5 to place my backpack. From train tracks to the exit is quite far. Walking underground will takes about 10 minutes. Refer to the map below. B is the train tracks and A is the Exit 5. I choose to stay here again because of its great location apart from the 20% discounts they give for every travelers with second visit. Since the place is clean, comfortable with cute egg-gy design, no doubt that I choose to stay again.

A is location for Mr Egg Original Hostel Nampo

That guy is Mr Egg, Sean. The owner

First place, I went to Baemosa Temple (Baemosa Station,Exit 7). Thou it was late November, I'm glad that i can still catch the autumn foliage . Fyi, you cannot walk to Baemosa Temple. You have to take bus No 90. Map below shows how can you get to the bus station for Baemosa Temple.

Baemosa Station, Exit 7 and walk thru the diagonal lane. The purple square is the bus station.

Beautiful, isnt it?

After Baemosa, I went to Al Fatah Mosque. To get to this mosque, you need to stop at Dusil Station Exit 8. The direction is as per below.

Dusil Station. Exit 8. Walk straight until you see a gas station + mechanic, turn right and the green square is Al Fattah Mosque

After visited the mosques, I went to Haeundae Station by subway. Thought that I want to go to Yonggungsa Temple but it was too late. It was closed at 6.00 pm hence I had to turn back and spend my night around Haeundae.

For Yonggungsa Temple, take bus at  Exit 7 bus stop
If you want to go to Haeundae Beach, take exit 3/5 and walk down the road until you see the beach at the end.

I got back to hostel around 8.00 pm, took shower and sleep. End my day 1
