Busan Part III: Things To See Outside the City

Yay, holiday weekend in Busan!

In my first post about Busan, I mentioned the amazing Airbnb place I stayed at near Haeundae Beach, called Gina's House. It was such a great place to stay and the best part was sight-seeing with Gina and her other guests that weekend, a young couple from Singapore. 

We did a cooking class during the morning and then drove out of the city to visit some of the famous places along the coast between Ulsan and Busan. The first place we visited was Ganjeolgot, a park with a lighthouse and, for some reason, a windmill and a giant mail box. I have no idea why those things were there.

A giant windmill overlooking the Korean coastline, because, why not?
