The next stop was Oryuk. Oryukdo is a group of islands in Nam-gu, Busan. You have to take a ferry to get on Oryukdo. Depending or the day you can see 5 (o) or 6 (yuk) islands, which is where the origin of the name came from. Oryuk has beautiful views of the coastline and islands. The wind is very brisk and it is a lot colder around here.
Here you can see a couple of the islands.
You can go hiking here but the hike is pretty steep. There is also a skywalk over the cliffs and it hangs a little over the ocean. It has a glass floor so you can look down below. You have to wear special show covers so that you don't scuff the glass. Don't worry it's not scary at all!
The ocean is a beautiful blue with very rough waves.
You get a great view of the coast and the city.
There is even a mini seafood market. You know this is very fresh since it's right on the parking lot next to the ocean.
Obviously swimming is prohibited.
My trips are never complete without my selfies.
I love this selfie because of the background, not because a huge gust of wind blew at the exact moment I wanted to take a picture and messed up my hair.
We had about 40 mins to walk around and take pictures, but aside from the coastline there was not much to see. As we walked back to the bus the path was littered with beautiful yellow flowers which mostly had bees on them. I absolutely hate bees, this picture was taken using zoom. I'm glad I took it because it turned out awesome.
Which way to go? I actually didn't go in any of the those directions, the bus was a different way. Getting to Oryuk is difficult if you are trying to use public transportation. I would suggest taking a taxi, it's the easiest and most reliable way to get there.
