The elderly’s beach destination back in the day is transformed into a hot spot for the youth! Let’s check out Songdo Beach, the trending hot spot on social media. Opened in 1913, Songdo Beach is the first beach in Korea. After its golden period in the 1960s and 1970s, the beach became deserted. Those who wished to bring it back to its former beauty joined forces to repair the abandoned beach, making it even more breathtaking than it was in its heyday. With its spotless sandy beach, clear water, cloud trails, and an overwater cable car, Songdo Beach is once again a popular tourist destination receiving over five million visitors per year.

Allow me to introduce you to a simple way to go out using minimal equipment at a time when traveling is not really an option. I’m talking about car-camping and car-picnicking. Sleeping inside the car without a tent and picnicking in the car are new ways to enjoy travel as long as you can find a place to park the car. The great thing about these two traveling methods is that you can simply enjoy nature in your own space without anyone to interfere. Let’s head over to the hidden gems of Busan where you can enjoy car-camping (car-picnicking) and take photos of lasting memories.

The Ami-dong Tombstone Culture Village is across the road from Gamcheon Culture Village. It is one of the mountainous villages that grew busy because of the increasing visitors during the mountainside road renaissance. During the Korean War, refugees embarked on a journey with nothing but basic household items. The civic officers handed out a small note to refugees who congregated to Busan Station that contained the following short address. “San 19-beonji, Ami-dong.” This was the beginning of the Ami-dong Tombstone Culture Village where they will make their home.
