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.

... looked like a school for monks or maybe some material arts.
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!
... passport safe.
I said my goodbyes to the owner of the Jeju Hiking Inn, a friendly and easy-going English-speaking Korean who I think is PSY's long-lost identical twin brother. It was a pleasant place to call home for a week, and at 22,000 won a night for my own room with double bed and bathroom and ocean views in the heart of town happens to be much cheaper than the rent I pay for a townhouse in western New South Wales. Except for the internet room not having a ...
... adjectivised phrases to give it an overblown feel. By the end I was in the mood for some Starship Troopers. The art of the overblown-a modern curse. From there I took the metro to Nampo. The metro has four well organised (in that very few stations are close to each other) lines. Music plays in the station just before the train approaches-I think the soundtrack differs by line. There's also a musical intro for stations at which you can change onto other lines-the guide I read ...
... ground, you think that would be a safe place to look wouldn’t you? Apparently not, one of the hippies was wearing the most ridiculous shark socks; big beady eyes popping out the front, red mouth covering his entire heel and fins sticking out the side of his feet. Those socks are in no way appropriate for a temple, surely? And that was it I couldn’t hold my composure for any longer. I joined team s******, I felt guilty but I can’t carry too much blame, ...
... and a ridiculous and boring defensive argument was launched into by her on behalf of the organisation, complete with - I swear - a ten minute video that she made everyone be silent for. Pfft!
3) We have found our way around and are comfortble. There is still the relentlessly swirling world of Asia outside that baffles us, but we seemed to have conceded that bafflement is an acceptable state in which to remain.
We'll wonder in ...
