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.

... for these events. With time and more people involved, I can see NZ paving their way.
The Korean Grand Masters, International Masters and some important Korean officials acknowledged and appreciated our country;s participation and achievement, a great honour.
Later that evening we went out to celebrate with a couple of the Grand Masters and had a few soju.
We have arrived at our only port outside Japan, Busan, South Korea. Instead of taking a ship's tour, we have decided to make a go of it on our own with the help of a volunteer guide (all they ask for is compensation for their transportation and to buy them lunch). A couple that had one in Tokyo were completely impressed. We mentioned it to a few others on the cruise and they decided to join us. What started out as the 3 of us has grown into a group of ...
... and away from the city. It looks like a shortcut or something for those people that don't need to drive through the slower streets of downtown. The way the bridge curves around at certain points almost makes it look like the cars are driving off into the water.
Back to the trail... We picked up a map (all in Korean) and got some instructions from a park worker (all in Korean) and set off to see what we could see. We decided to do the forest trail first, then cut down ...
... I picture myself in cabs, slowing down my speech and increasing my volume as I say ‘MEAN....WOOD’ to a bewildered Yorkshire taxi driver who I fully expect to respond with homeland dialect of ‘ere lad, wot bloody ‘ell ya on about, talkin’ like am daft an tha’. Taxi prices are going to break my heart too, I could travel the entire length of Ulsan for around a fiver; I can only dream of prices like that in England.
A question ...
We saw a litter of kittens lounging on one rock.
When we got to the top of the furthest rock we found that generations of people had left messages on pad-locks and locked them to the railings. Much like the Ha'penny Bridge in Dublin (and many other landmarks worldwide, I ...
