TravelPod Member ReviewsHaeundae Centum Hotel Busan
Don't expect a beach hotel when you see "Haeundae" in the name. This is instead right smack in the center of Centum City, a newer development in Busan where you'll find the world's largest department store, the BEXCO convention center, the BIFF film center and the soon-to-be-built mega television headquarters for KNN. It's an extremely convenient location for shopping and sightseeing since you're steps away from everything including the metro. The hotel is smack in the middle, 3 subway stops either way, between 2 of Busan's most popular beaches - Haeundae and Gwangali. There is a free shuttle bus in the summertime going to Haeundae Beach. We were lucky enough to have a Garden Suite which was perfect for our long stay because it has 2 bedrooms, a full kitchen, a washing machine and a garden terrace. Very tastefully decorated and service has always been good with staff trying very hard to communicate in English. Breakfast buffet is pretty good and there are lots of other dining options in the building as well including a couple of coffee shops, 3 bar/lounges and even a GS25 variety store. The Korean Spa in the basement is pretty nice with 4 pools and 2 saunas. Only drawback is no wi-fi in the rooms, only in the lobby.

... if not just humor those of us that do.Goegi is an industrial town with a few short blocks of gawdy neon lit streets housing dubious bars and greet small restaurants to cater for the crowds of shipbuilders both local and expat community. We headed off most night with a Will asleep in the pram to sample the local foods and it was GOOD! Massive Alaskan King Crab, Lobster and fresh fish and not to forget the "F*>#ing Awesome Bar BQ" how did we know it was "F*>#ing ...

Since the wind was so strong we decided to go somewhere inside and so we took a taxi and went to a Lotte Department Store, where we had dinner.
After dinner we went to the roof but it was already dark and cold and you could hear the wind hauling, scary but wonderful at the same time!
... been known to walk ten kilometres, or in the rain, or carrying bags of groceries across several hilly, humid Brisbane suburbs rather than hail a cab.
But what a drive to remember! It was a white-knuckle ride more thrilling than any of the Grand Theft Auto series of video games. 117 km/h in tunnels with a 70 km/h limit, weaving and tailgating and running red lights. And it wasn't just the taxi, it was everyone. The driving in Busan is simply insane. This place ...
Where is the worst place in the world to fall into uncontrollable fits of laughter? I'm not sure, but a Buddhist temple during silent bows has to be a contender. This weekend I did a temple stay in Busan with Amy and it was quite interesting, though apparently an event that requires composure. The first occasion we started to s****** was during the early stages when we were learning the correct methods to bow. They live for bowing, don’t even get me started on that, ...
... of South Korea, its former President wrote: "I do not wish our country not to be one that imitates others ... I do not wish my country to be a military or a political power, but rather wish it were a cultural power."
So I invite you, one and all, in order to help this non-violent, playful and romantic vision come into fruition, get your reflective blue tuxedo jackets out, stick on your shades and ride that invisible horse, Gangnam ...
