I enjoyed the path that led to the skywalk much more, for there was a clean view of the coastlines and the Oryukdo island, sans the crowd. To get to this view, alight a couple of bus stops before the Orykdo Skywalk.Admission fee:FOCOperating hours:6.30am-6.30pmDirections:Take Subway Line 1 to Busan Station.

Next stop was the Oryukdo Islands. We thought Taejongdae Park was gorgeous, but we were totally blown away here. The bus drives along the coast (gorgeous views again! <3) and stopped in front of a huge condominium (ocean views - must be a very expensive place to stay in!). This condominium looked different from the conglomerate branded apartments we saw earlier. It looked more expensive and was like a gated community.The Oryukdo Islands are off this coast, and consists of a collection of 5 to 6 islets. During high tide you can only see 5 of them and during low tide there are 6. There is also a coastal hiking trail leading from this part of the coast to Gwangalli Beach, but it was a 7km hike, and it was almost sundown, so my husband and I decided against going on it. Such a pity though, it would have been nice to end the day off at Gwangalli Beach! If I lived here, I would hike every day.
