Busan is one of the most popular attractions in South Korea and especially it attracts so many tourists in the summer. Busan is famous with its beautiful beaches such as Haeundae beach or Gwanganli beach, famous with street art like the colorful Gamcheon village or with the most beautiful temple in South Korea, Haedong yonggungsa temple. You may usually hear about Haeundae area, Gwangalli area or Songdo area. And in this post I will introduce to you Gijang-gun County in Busan.
Although Gijang-gun is a rural part of Busan, it has some beautiful destinations that may attract you.
Jukseong Dream Church
Jukseong Dream Church stands right by the sea. Despite of the fact that it’s not a real church, the view is spectacular.
As like the name this Jukseong church is so dreamy.
The great view with the sound of the waves crashing against the rock and the sea wind make a great combination that can help you heel your soul.
Jukseong Church actually was built and used as a filming location for “Dream” in the early 2000s. The church appeared in the episode 4. After that, it has the name Dream. Thanks to its beauty, it became popular among photographers and tourists. If you come here in the sunrise or sunsets time, you will get a breathtaking view of Jukseong. That’s also the best time for a great photoshoot here.
How to get here: Gijang Station [기장역], Donghae Line and then you need to walk for a while or take a bus/taxi.
Seaside coffee shops
In Gijang-gun, there is a seaside coffee area with so many beautiful coffee shops where you can have a great time admiring the ocean as well as relaxing and talking with friends.
Taking taxi from the Jukseong Dream Church to to seaside coffee area, we choose the Bay 226 coffee shop. This two destination is quite close to each other.
Located right by the sea, this coffee shop has an amazing view that will make your photo has fresh vibe. Cafe Bay 266 is really an instaworth place for you.
I recommend you choose the outside seats because you can feel the nature with blue sky, blue sea and also to watch seagulls flying above.
From here, you also can go down to go to the sea.
Drinks are good and the price is affordable with the average is around 7,500won.
Address: Gijang, Ilgwang-myeon, dongbeak-ri 266-13
At Gijang-gun area, it’s a little hard to catch a taxi. When we went there, we didn’t see any taxi pass by. It took a lot of time. Luckily, there was a woman living there helped us. She gave us 2 taxi phone number to call. You can call to those number below in case you want to take a taxi.
