Hoedong Reservoir

Hoedong Reservoir is an artificial reservoir built for citizens having suffered from drought in the past. Located in Oryun-dong and Hoedong-dong of Geumjeong-gu, it boasts a storage capacity of 18.5 million tons. This reservoir was responsible for the source of Busan’s water supply. Being designated as a water source conservation area in 1964, it was restricted from public access until 2010. Lacking the footsteps of visitors to the reservoir for nearly 50 years, it naturally became a place where beautiful ecosystems and nature that have not been polluted by humans can be encountered.

Hoedong Reservoir, created by nature and people, has become a famous healing travel destination in Busan as a place where you can enjoy a pleasant walk along the “lake.” The backdrop of the reservoir changes its clothes of various colors with every passing season, creating a different landscape every time. Especially when autumn arrives, it is widely loved as a travel course where people enjoy watching red-tinged maple leaves.

Since Hoedong Reservoir sits on both Oryun-dong and Hoedong-dong, there are several ways to access the area, which makes it an ideal place to travel during this season. In particular, if you walk barefoot on Ttangmoesan Red Clay Forest Trail, you feel healthier with each step and you can also enjoy the excitement of seeing the scenery that changes every hour. You can move on foot through the entire reservoir area so it is possible to not only enjoy its appearance, which can be seen differently with each angle, but also experience the path that changes from a red clay road and deck to a forest.

Oryukdo Island

Do you know the mysterious island, Oryukdo, that seems to be five islands to some people and six islands to others? Oryukdo is a beautiful island located in Yongho-dong, Nam-gu, Busan and designated as Scenic Site No. 24. The island is named Oryukdo because it looks like there are five or six islands depending on the tidal difference or viewing angle, and, thanks to the Skywalk, it is one of the most beloved travel destinations.

Sunrise Park, located in front of Oryukdo, is a place where you can walk on top of the coastal cliffs viewed from Oryuk and is also the beginning of the “Haeparang Trail.” You can begin your walk from Oryukdo and make your way to Igidae Coastal Trail and then along the East Coast. In addition, Sunrise Park has a well-established deck road so, if you walk up along this path, you can get a closer look at the scenery of Oryukdo Island. The landscape surrounding Oryukdo that you can look out at while walking along the deck road shows phenomenally cool scenery and the unique colors of the blue sea. If you wish to check out the color of the blue sea that you may have only read about in fairy tales, take a closer look on “Oryukdo Skywalk.”

Oryukdo Skywalk built with iron beams installed on a 35m high coastal cliff was opened on October 18, 2013. Oryukdo Skywalk is a glass bridge with 24 glass plates constituting the floor through which you can vividly and transparently enjoy the blue sea and coastal cliffs under your feet. If you walk along the dizzying Skywalk, you can get a more up close view of Oryukdo Island and, as you follow the U-shaped road, you can see the cliff under Sunrise Park in greater detail. You can also capture the vivid images of blue waves crashing into the coastal cliffs.
