Busan Cinema CenterBusan Cinema Center is located in the bustling streets of Haeundae-gu, which is famous worldwide as the town that hosts the Busan International Film Festival (BIFF). But foreign tourists probably don’t know that this place is also the largest skateboarding spot in Busan.
You can see individual skaters, skateboarding clubs, as well as foreigners frequenting Busan Cinema Center. Skateboards that people ride also differ by type. Some use basic skateboards, others prefer long ones, while some choose cruiser skateboards and various types.
The Busan Cinema Center is the largest skateboarding spot because it is not only situated in a crowded area with a nice view but providing a wide space for skateboarding and lighting that is turned on until 11:00 p.m. There is even a roof to shelter skateboarders when it rains.
Moreover, it is charming during the day but more brilliant and gorgeous at night as the flashy lighting, which comes in different colors and shapes that shine over the area, makes skateboarders riding like the wind look extra cool when spotlighted. If you are traveling to Korea from abroad, you should drop by Busan’s hottest spot and take photos with your skateboard!
On weekdays and weekends, skateboard masters and other skilled people gather at Busan Cinema Center. If you want to learn how to skateboard, you should come and hang out in the area to make friends and learn tricks at the same time.
