YangjijipOryun-dong is the perfect place to enjoy a leisurely meal with your family away from the city. It is only a 10-minute drive from Jangjeon Station on Busan Metro Line 1. However, once you enter the village, you won't be feeling like you are in a big city. The small town is surrounded by mountains and lakes, which make you feel as if you have entered the depths of the mountains. Located near the Hoedong Reservoir, a source of drinking water for Busan residents, nature has been well preserved as a source water protection area for many years. The trail along the Hoedong Reservoir is one of the most popular walking trails.
Odette SeomyeonOdette, a popular dog-friendly restaurant in Hallim, Jeju Island, has also opened in Busan. Odette Seomyeon is located on Jeonpo Café Street, which is still popular among hipsters. It is painted in calm colors and decorated with photos and cute ornaments. Like Odette Hallim, it also allows you to dine with your pet. Medium and large dogs are often restricted even in pet-friendly restaurants, but Odette Seomyeon offers a separate rooftop area for dogs over 10 kg. A reservation is recommended on the rooftop since there aren't many tables.
Roman VillaThere is a pet-friendly brunch café on Gwangalli Beach, which is crowded with summer visitors. It is “Roman Villa” located in a place with a view of Gwangalli's sea. As the name suggests, it has a European vibe. It feels like you're in a cafe in a European alley with exotic ornaments and a calm atmosphere. As all the walls, tables, and chairs are achromatic, the space is perfect for taking pictures with vivid clothing on. Only dogs weighing less than 7 kg on a leash are allowed due to limited space.
