Bodyworlds in Busan ?

by advantix

Has anybody visited the exhibition of Bodyworlds in Busan ?
Is it realy such a succes ?

Re: Bodyworlds in Busan ?

by phil_uk_net

Not in Busan but I went while it was in London - it was here for quite a long time. By all accounts it has been very successful and has made the eccentric German guy who thought of it and invented the 'plastination' process (Gunther von Hagen) a rich man. It's interesting but some of the exhibits are not for those with sensitive stomachs. The style of display of some exhibits is also not very tasteful, in my opinion. The exhibition has caused a lot of controversy wherever it has been shown. Before it came to London some people were trying to get it banned. If you look at it as a lesson in anatomy and the workings of the body it is good. If you treat it like an art form (it was held in an art gallery in London) your reaction may not be so good. I thought it was worth seeing and didn't regret going but that is of course a personal opinion.

Hi advantix,

I've never been to the Bodyworlds in Seoul and Busan.

I don't know it is succes the Bodyworlds in Busan.

But my office is located next door the National Science Museum in Seoul.

I'm sure they made big succes in Seoul 'cause the visitors were over 2million in Seoul.

Re: Bodyworlds in Busan ?

by meetkorea

Bodyworlds opens daily in BEXCO from March 11 to September 21 2003.

And it was vey successful results of at least 1.5 millions of visitors from Busan and its vicinities.

You can find the details at ttp://www.bodyworlds.co.kr

Travel Tips for Busan

Mt. JaeYak and Mt. Gaji near Milyang and EonYang

by meetkorea

Here is some information about the park and some of the attractions:

The ridge of the 1,240-meter-high Mt. Gajisan runs parallel to the 1,189-meter-high Mt. Cheonhwangsan at the southern tip of the Taebaek Mountain Range.
Mt. Gajisan National Park is regarded as one of the most scenic attractions in the Yeongnam area.

It features peculiar rock formations, picturesque valleys with crystal clear water coursing through, a thickly wooded forest, and scenic waterfalls. Eoreumgol and Seoknamsa Temple can also be seen here, hidden safely away in the forest. The section of the mountain ridge stretching from Ssalbawi Rock to the summit is strewn with various rocks and is very jagged, making for especially fantastic views and a challenging climb.

Mt. Gajisan National Park is divided into three different areas;
the Mt. Gajisan area (Eoreumgol and Seoknamsa Temple), the Tongdosa Temple area, and the Mt. Cheonseongsan area (Naewonsa Temple). Suitable footware and clothes, Camera

Regular Train to Gyeong-ju

by GracesTrips

We took the train to Gyeong-ju, then to Ulsan and then back down to Busan. The last train from Ulsan to Busan was at 10pm or so.

The train ride from Busan to Gyeong-ju was about 2 hours and cost about US$10 per person. From Gyeong-ju to Ulsan about 45 minutes. Train ride fares change for the same distance depending on the time you are taking the train.

There is a KR Pass. Korean non-resident (foreign) pass for railroad travel by tourists. You wil need to show your passport. For 3 days, about US$76 and 5 days, about US$114 and additional costs of 50% for sleeping cabin and KTX First Class. So, do your math first to see if this is worthwhile for you. We did not purchase the KR Pass.

Visiting the largest fish market in Korea

by bpacker

If you don't mind being in an Asian wet market and surrounded by fishy odour, then you should really visit Korea's largest seafood joint, the Jagalchi Market . Unlike the Tsukiji fish market in tokyo, most of the fishmongers here people are women and they are known as the 'Jagalchi Ajumma' ( 'ajumma' meaning middle-aged or married women) . Come every October , the Jagalchi Cultural Tourism Festival is held, so that'll be a good time to go. Expect to seeworkers dressed like fish and other sea animals! Check with www.knto.com for the exact date of the festival.

Things to do
What else can you do but indulge in the fresh seafood? The surrounding area has many "pochang machas" / stalls which serve raw and cooked seafood.

Other attractions
There's a dried fish market nearby. More stinky than Jagalchi itself.

Gwangalli Beach

by iwys

Gwangalli Beach is the closest to the city centre. In the summer it is just as crowded as Haeundae Beach. It is best visited at night, when it offers spectacular views of the illuminated Gwangan Great Bridge. The neon-lit seafront is crowded with lively bars and restaurants.

Worth a trip!

"Facts about Busan"

Almost every tourist in Korea has Seoul as starting point and then heading to the nature. Busan as second largest city is widly forgotten even though it's a really nice city.

"Explore the city"

Explore Downtown Busan and stroll along all the markets. And you'll be surprised what you can find at the fishmarket.... Have a look at the picture...

"Temple"

Check out the temples, especially Beomeosa.

Buy a Tile at the temples and write your name on it and then it will be used as building material.

The W10'000 is a donation to the temple. Nice Idea!
