Kaden and I went to Busan for a short 3 days. We were originally going to go to Japan but decided on a train ride to Busan cause of.. well… the size of my belly. I’ve been getting Braxton Hicks contractions often lately and Kaden was worried about getting on a plane so we changed plans and headed to Busan.
We had to stop at Ji Jae station for Kaden’s friends wedding so we headed to Wang Shim Ni station and made our way there.
Ji Jae station is like number 1 and the SRT train leaves from this station to Busan.
The station itself doesn’t have much. A 7-eleven and some storage lockers is all it has.
When the time came we headed to the boarding area. The announcement for boarding starts 15 minutes before the train time and it must be met because the train departing time is the actual time that the train starts to leave. So it’s better to be there at the boarding dock 20 minutes before the actual time.
Our seats were 7A and B so we were able to sit together and ride down to Busan comfortably.
The train ride to Busan was about two hours long so we ate some snacks and watched some shows.
When we got to Busan station, we took the Busan metro line to Hae Uon Dae station where our hotel was.
For some reason, we couldn’t use our transportation cards that we used in Seoul.
So we had to purchase tickets.
We took the orange line and went to Seo Myeon Station, transferred to the green line and made our way to our hotel.
The hotel was a small room with a queen sized bed, TV, small fridge a coffee table and two chairs.
After unpacking, we made our way to the closest Pig Soup place. Dae Ji Kook Bap is really famous in Busan so we went to a place near our hotel.
Then we made our way to the Hae Un Dae Market to get some Dduk bok ki.
Apparently this place is really famous for their food.
We got some to-go so that we could eat it back at the hotel.
The place across from where we bought our dduk bok ki was small but they were selling things out pretty quickly too.
When we got back, Kaden couldn’t resist the smell and unpackaged everything and just started eating. I was pretty full so I only tried a little bit but this was the best dduk bok ki I have ever tried in my life all together.
The fried food was also really good. It seemed like they used clean oil to try their food.
The first day in Busan was gone, just like that. We said good night to the kids via KaKao Video calls and went to bed.
