Next was Haeundae beach. I always saw pictures on instagram of people frolicking at the beach, the pictures actually reminded me of Miami beach with all the umbrellas and crowds of people. the sand was so soft it was really nice. Some of the other beaches I have been to in Korea have too many large rocks or were empty so it didn't feel like I was actually at a beach. By the time we got there it was dark, so I got some really nice night shots. I'm starting to love night shots, they always turn out so beautiful.
This is my favourite photo, the lights and the water patches on the sand lit up look so beautiful in the dark!
The aquarium is right on the beach which is really convenient. I love aquariums, I always end up going to one on a lot of my trips.
This is the first aquarium I've seen with a glass floor. It was cool being able to see the different mammals swimming under you.
The also have a glass bottom boat ride. The only other place I saw this was in Manila. It sucks because it was closed by the time we got there.
I've actually never seen this type of jellyfish before, I didn't even know they existed. These jellyfish are called Cassiopea and they are upside down; their head rests on the bottom of the sea floor and the swim this way too.
I love jellyfish. I actually tried it a few weeks ago without knowing. It was a strange taste, I don't think I would eat it again. It wasn't gross but the texture is a little strange.
I've never seen sharks actually show their teeth. So I was happy I got to see it here.
Getting there: Take line 2 (green line) east to Haeundae Station. Leave through exit 5, then walk towards the beach.
