If you complete the simple night hike, you can definitely pat yourself on the back! The nighttime tour is capped off with the participants having a delicious dinner together against the backdrop of Busanhangdaegyo Bridge’s splendid scenery, looking forward to the next tour.
These days, wherever you go, it is basic etiquette to follow the COVID-19 prevention rules! The first things you must do at the Jungnim Community Cooperative are to check your body temperature and sterilize your hands. The experience activity of the 2020 Moonlight Shower Season 2: The Intimate, Romantic Night Tour is making traditional unrefined rice wine, makgeolli. In this activity, the professional senior masters help the participants make the rice wine smoothly. With their faces beaming with smiles, they eagerly follow the masters’ instructions. The rice wine made will be given to them after the walking tour. Shall we work harder on the makgeolli?
After experiencing the production of makgeolli, the participants ride a car to Seongbuk Pass, where they will start the walking tour. Expectations and excitement will fill their minds as they look forward to the one-of-a-kind view that’s different from what they see during the day. The mountainside road running along hillsides unfolds a unique panorama of Busan. Why not enjoy the vista overlooking the city, walk up and down the stairs leading to alleys, and stroll through the green forest trail? You can feel the daily lives of Dong-gu’s people in every alley on the mountainside road.
As you walk along the winding road, you’ll reach the entrance to the Gubongsan Healing Forest. This is where the night hike begins. You can watch exciting live performances while taking a quick break. The sun has already set, and it’s dark, but the performance energizes the participants! Five-colored lanterns illuminate the trail in the darkness. Don’t you think this romantic mood would make for an unforgettable walk at night? The night view of downtown Busan seen through the trees is another gift presented by the night hike. The hillsides covered with orange streetlights in the alleys will warm your heart. How about going on the Intimate, Romantic Night Tour? This journey ends with the picturesque scene of Busanhangdaegyo Bridge.
The romantic trip to the original downtown of Dong-gu during the 2020 Moonlight Shower Season 2: The Intimate, Romantic Night Tour will linger in your mind for a long time.
