Haeundae Beach is the most well-known destination in Busan and is popular all over the country as the biggest summer holiday place. However, it also is a great place to visit year-round. Today, we’ll share everything you need to know about the Haeundae Blue Line Park, Haeundae beach train, and Busan’s Sky Capsule.
Haeundae Blue Line Park
The Haeundae Blueline opened its doors in October 2020 and is designed so tourists can visit Haeundae with ease. The Main Center is located at Cheongsapo Station, while the tickets are located at Mipo Station, Cheongsapo Station, and Songjeong.
The Sky Capsule is the first high-speed railway in Korea that can operate automatically.
The capsules are painted in four different colors (red, yellow, green, blue), the same as the train. And they are in pristine condition. We felt like riding a monorail in an amusement park.
From Mipo to Cheongsapo, the Haeundae coastal scenery stretches 2 kilometers, traveling at a slow speed of 5km/h. The ride takes around 25 minutes. So, you have plenty of time to enjoy the breath-taking views.
The Sky Capsules offer you the most beautiful views of Haeundae and a romantic vibe to enjoy with your loved ones.
Sky Capsules: One way trip use 30,000 won for 2 people / Round trip use 55,000 won For 2 people.
Haeundae Beach Train
The Haeundae Beach Train from Cheongsapo to Mipo only took 10 minutes compared to the Sky Capsule which took 25 minutes.
The Beach Train runs at a comfortable 15 km/h speed, offering panoramic views of the ocean through its wide windows. We departed from Mipo Station and traveled alongside the East Sea, passing through the Dalmaji Tunnel. Finally, we arrived at Songjeong Station.
It is a unique experience to ride this train because of the vivid contrast between red and white at Cheongsapo Port and at Daritdol Skywalk, which offers a calm view of Haeundae.
Mipo Station → Dalmaji Tunnel → Cheongsapo Station → Daritdol Observatory → Gudeokpo → Songjeong.
1 time use 7,000 won / 2 times 10,000 won / 6 times 13,000 won
Bonus: MONTEE 104 Cafe
Montée104 is a great place to relax whether you’re heading to the Beach Trains or Sky Capsules, or whether you just want to relax in Haeundae!
This pretty cafe is located in Mipo station. From its rooftop, you can see the Haeundae Sea and colorful Sky Capsules. With bright colors and a lot of nice touches, it makes for great Instagram shots
Taking the coffee while watching the Sky Capsules pass was also a relaxing experience for us.
