Haedong Yonggung Temple is one of my favorite places to see in Busan. The temple itself is beautiful. The fact that it is located by the clear blue ocean is a plus. The statues which made of rock are fascinating. This temple where local people go so you will be able to see many religion ceremonies performed there.

We took the #100 bus from Haeundae and walked to the temple.

Visited this beautiful sea view temple that is a distance from the city. Very picturesque and you will be taking lots of photos here for sure. Take subway line 2 and get off @ Haeundae Station. Exit 7 and take a taxi to the temple. Once you see the big Lottery Factory Outlets you are almost there. Fare around KRW8,000.... More

This temple is quite far from the city but you don't miss this place. You can enjoy scenic view with the temple. Transpotation is very convinience by the bus and walk to the temple.

Since it was Lunar New Year there was plenty of people. But it was worth seeing :-) Just next to the Temple are nice rocks where you can sit and enjoy the sea :-)
