Nothing spectacular. Maybe just for a photo shot that I am here. Nice place to rest under the bridge facing the sea/river.

The lifting of the bridge daily for ships to pass at 2pm local time was part of Busan's tourist attraction. You can either have a close look at the bridge from the river itself or from a distance at the observatory deck of Yongdusan Park...More
