Although the weather is very cold. but if you can take the ship and have a close view to the Island, the experience is valuable.

We were blessed with sunny weather (despite cloudy days prior to that) in chilly temperature, and hence blessed with picturesque views which you could just sit there and take them in. There were some trails at the top of the hill. We tried to trek through them but kind of lost our way in the middle of it, and as... More

The air was refreshing, great scenery as you climb up to the peak -see the rocks harmonizing on the beach with the sea or walk down the staircases in a relax & enjoy every moment of the breeze. The place is just simply a beautiful place to enjoy a quiet moment to reflect and reach out for new inspirations.

WIth dramatic skies and grand rocks on the shore of Busan, the Oryukdu islands are a sight to behold. There are places to eat and toilets are the site. The place also has an information centre-museum. The walking trail with a glass bridge is a brilliant experience.

Great scenery! Besides the skywalk, you can follow the staircases down the cliff side, or you can also take a short hike/ stairs climb further up the area behind skywalk! Tip 1: Secure all loose items before you alight from car/ bus! It's extremely windy and your T-money card, hat/ caps and other lighter stuff can be blown away very... More

This is another drop of in the hop on hop off day tour bus in Busan. I really like this place , and enjoyed the stroll down to where the rocks were. The huge rocks jutting out of the sea remind me of the Rawshed rock in Beirut Lebanon, and other parts v much like the coast of Kiama in... More

I've seen this island both up close and from far away (from Taejongdae) and from there it looked insignificant, just a few rocks sticking out of the sea. I don't think there's a tour to take people to the islands but you can see it by taking a boat cruise around it. The Mipo station is where you can catch... More

I often go kayaking around the lighthouse and sometimes on rare occasions I catch the ebb jet for an easy ride but most times it takes dedication and a dash of insanity to set out into the chop but for those that do the rewards last a lifetime. At Oryukdo I experienced a natural satori while facing death in the... More
