Summer is over and autumn has come with cool breezes blowing throughout the day. It’s the best season for travel. Let’s take a trip to Haeundae Green Railway and take a walk while admiring Busan’s blue sea today. I hope you enjoy the autumn of Busan as you walk along the coastal railroad where the beach train runs.

Gudeokpo Old Mug

The beach train runs along the old Donghae Nambu Line from Songjeong Beach to Mipo, Haeundae. As it runs along the sea, it is one of the most scenic train rides in Korea. Passengers line up even on weekdays because it is Busan's most representative attraction. You can also walk along the railroad tracks on a newly built trail. Real coastal trekking can be only experienced in Busan by walking along the 4.8km of coastal decks.

If you walk along the coastal decks from Songjeong Beach, you will soon arrive at Gudeokpo. This small fishing village adjacent to Songjeong Beach is nowadays popular in Busan for its unique cafes. Among them is Old Mug, a drip coffee specialty store. Because of the tall trees, you will feel as if you are in a deep forest once you go down the stairs connecting to decks. The sound of the waves is constantly heard, and the blue sea is seen through the trees. The outhouse looks like a European lodge and is popular with Instagrammers.

Cheongsapo

If you walk along the coastal decks from Old Mug, you will arrive at Cheongsapo in 30 minutes. It takes half a day just to find nice cafes hidden all over town. The alleyways with witty murals are also fun to explore. As a treasure of Busan where tourists taking pictures of unfamiliar seascapes and fishermen indifferently drying their fishing gear in the air coexist, Cheongsapo is a place to discover Busan differently.

Cheongsapo's Mongdolhaebyeon Beach is another attraction. Previously, the area was a military protected area that was closed to the general public, but now that a coastal deck road has been built, anyone can access it. Pebbles cover the beach, which stretches about 200 meters between unique rock formations. The waves roll the pebbles beautifully every time they come in.

Ocean Breeze Cafe

A nice cafe opened at a place with a good view of Cheongsapo. As its name suggests, “Ocean Breeze” is a newly built cafe where you can enjoy a cool sea breeze. The blue sea can be seen from anywhere in the three-story building made of exposed concrete. In spite of the lovely view from the large window, the outdoor terrace offers an even better view. The terrace offers a good view of coastal decks too. I love watching the colorful beach trains and the cute little sky capsules come and go in the background of the blue sea.

Haeundae No. 1 Jogaegui

When the sun sets and the sky turns orange, it’s time for Cheongsapo’s famous grilled clams. As there are many grilled clam restaurants in Cheongsapo, it has long been a popular place for Busan residents. Haeundae No. 1 Jogaegui stands out on the coast of Cheongsapo. There are palm trees in front of the building, giving the impression that you are in a tourist attraction in Southeast Asia. The clams served in a ship-shaped wooden tray are very fresh. The taste of clams grilled over briquettes is the highlight of a trip to Cheongsapo. A window seat with a view of the sea is the best spot in the store, which has been decorated like a resort. Eating grilled clams while watching the sunset in Cheongsapo will melt away the fatigue of travel like snow.
