... This will be interesting…” However within a minute I found a sign directing me to the metro, and from there it was easy. Arriving at Jagalchi station 15 minutes later I had another “I have NFI where to go” moments. Luckily I was able to tap into some wireless and use the Hostel World app on my phone to direct me; soon I was settled into my accommodation at Terra Guesthouse, which is by far the nicest hostel on my stay so ...
... block out anger and all of that kind of thing. So yeah, just about to stretch our legs, which is necessary when you’re sitting cross legged for hours continuously; I’m not as flexibly as I was in the days of listening to Miss Steward read about the Hungry Caterpillar. I’m half way to standing up when Mr. Can’t-Bow-Enough whacks his hand up with another question, come on man! I mean be considerate; you can see there’s a bloke asleep at ...
We did a tour of similar bars in similarly incomprehensible locations - down tight, seemingly barren alley-ways; up on the high floors of neon-clad buildings; through an inconspicuous and plain wooden door sandwiched between monstorously-lit stores. Each bar a newly discovered gem.
The city has two halves - Old Downtown and New Downtown, we wondered from one to the other ...
... else you need on the road cheaply (well in Asia anyway).
Here's hoping for a lighter bag and simple travels. Remember it's just stuff and if you've packed up your life to go traveling indefinitely anyway, then who needs extra stuff to carry? It's part of the wonderful traveling lifestyle and mind shift. Packing can be part of that process.
Now.. I'm just going to see if I can lift my bag...
... what a sight !
We then went back to the street where we alighted the bus, crossed over the road and walked to the fish markets.
The fish markets were all out in the open and there were a few things we’ve not seen being sold at fish markets in other places … such as dried octopus tentacles around a metre long – they looked like long bits of beef jerky with round things on ...

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.
