How I celebrate old and new in Busan

:

Hello peeps!! Happy new year!!

Glad to be back to write this blog after so much hectic during the end of the year before.
Well to cut it short I am writing about my experience about my new year celebration-the one that I celebrate the way Korean celebrate it- well here is the story.

December 31st
I went to Nampo-dong area around 11pm to see the fireworks and the charity bell ringing in the Mt.Yongdu park, the area was awfully crowded to the point that you have to queue for around almost half an hour to get to the park. And it was freaking cold but the line was that long. I got up and heard the 33 times charity bell ringing which supposed to mean as the bell of peace.
Then we went until we saw bunch of flying paper and lantern and when we almost went down the fireworks were there!! it was beautiful and worth to watch.

Down in Nampo-dong the street food vendor seller were still open and it was too crowded to eat so we opted to rush to Haeundae and take a nap before the important event on the next dawn.
Turns out event the subway is closed but you can take the bus for that day since they make the operation  hours longer than the initial time.
We arrived back at Hauendae around 2AM.

January 1st

The 7.45am sun
 

I checked the sunrise supposed to be around 7.32am on the morning and around 6.30 we departed from our beloved Hi Korea Hostel which is so near with the beach and we took turns to Lotteria and got some breakfast then we rush to the Hauendae beach where almost there was no more place to stand left. Luckily we found some pretty good spots nearby the aquarium.

After waiting for around half and hour, at 7.32am the sun was rise but we couldnt see it properly yet as there was heavy cloud just at that side of the sun, finally  around 7.49am we could see the sun properly.

Trust me it was worth to see!!

 

The 7.49am sun!!

January 4th the 1st weekend of the 2015

There was polar bear swimming festival in Haeundae beach!
Not only Korean spotted but believe me or not around 30% were foreigners that tried to swim in the cold winter Haeundae beach!!
You have to pay the registration fee for 20000KRW but you got some merchandise and of course the experience of it.
Well I couldnt participate because I had no idea that we have to register for it but watching it form a far was an interesting things to do.
