Three riverside trails of Busan enriched by autumn
Oncheoncheon TrailJust as Seoul has Cheonggyecheon, Busan has Oncheoncheon. Originating in Geumjeong-gu and flowing through Dongnae-gu and Yeonje-gu, Oncheoncheon Stream has a trail along its water route and is one of the most beloved stream trails of Busan locals. Do not let its location in the city center conjure up thoughts of mediocrity. As you walk along the stream, it is not uncommon to see wild animals that are rarely found in cities, such as otters, gray herons and egrets. Also, the elegant street of cafes under the Oncheoncheon trees provides cool relaxation in summer and a warm cup of coffee in winter.
Suyeonggang Riverside TrailIn the midst of high-rise buildings that seemingly touch the sky, there is a place where you can feel the cool river breeze that will clear up your mind and heart. This place is the Suyeonggang Riverside Trail. A part of the Busan Galmaetgil Trail 8-2 that goes from Dongcheongyo Bridge to Jwasuyeonggyo Bridge and Millakgyo Bridge, the Suyeonggang Riverside Trail is level and gentle so it is perfect for a light stroll. The clear sky, cool breeze and trail enriched by autumn present you with a momentary rest within the busy city center.
Nakdonggang Riverside Trail
The Nakdonggang estuary finally meets with the sea after a long journey and, as you stand next to the gently flowing river, you feel refreshed by the cool breeze blowing from across the river. The Nakdonggang Riverside Trail can be accessed simply by coming over a river bank from downtown Busan, which is why it is full of people who come out for a walk or a picnic under the cool fall wind. It is also a great place to “gaze at the water and space out” under the cool shade of a tree while listening to the sound from the river.
