Description

Busan’s newest tour attraction, the Busan Air Cruise at Songdo Beach, got off to a great start with tourists in the thousands visiting over its first weekend of operation. It runs 1.62 kilometers and you can enjoy the view from a height of 86 meters. It’s the longest cable car over the sea in Korea.
Busan Songdo Beach, Located a mere 3km from downtown Busan, Songdo Beach is a popular escape for the area’s city dwellers each summer. Opened in 1913 as Korea’s first official beach, the beach was named “Songdo” (meaning “Pine Island”) in reference to its bordering groves of pine trees. The beach began to gain popularity in the 1960s for its graceful coastlines, but was damaged by frequent hurricanes and subsequent sand loss. Starting in 2000, the beach underwent a comprehensive 5-year reconstruction and reopened with restored and expanded coastlines and the addition of several fountains.
The magnificent cliffs and tree-lined seaside views of Amnam Park bring the harmony of the bluish-green waters and the forested landscape together. Originally a protected area, entrance was not permitted until its opening to the public in 1996, when visitors could first experience the untouched landscape. Now, visitors can fish, explore the observatory, and enjoy the walking path and the elevated bridge. The abundunt pine trees along the walking path makes for a pleasant stroll while the path up to the observatory offers great views. If it is fishing that you want, here you can fish on the ocean as well as off the fantastically shaped rocks. There is also a famous road to go for a drive, leading from Songdo Beach to Amnam Park. This drive takes approximately 5 minutes, but it takes about 20 minutes on foot.
A Walk on the Sea at Songdo Beach The As Busan is famous for beaches, it is very busy and jammed with a crowd of people during the summer. Especially the Songdo Beach, located merely 3km from downtown of Busan, began to gain popularity for the area’s city dwellers each summer in the 1960s because of its graceful coastlines. In fact the name of “Songdo” means “Pine Island” in reference to its bordering groves of pine tree. Songdo Beach Skywalk, formally opened as the Korea’s longest and curved sea overpath in June 2015, was equipped with of 104-meter-length (from sea shore island to the lighthouse) and 2.3- meter-width that was made with special steel plate and wood. The bridge was 5.5~6-meters-high above sea level. Visitors are able to see the color of the ocean while the wave rolling under their feet through the floor which made of tempered glass double-reinforced, included strong railing. So this is the place for visitors can securely revel in the sounds of churning waves and an expansive ocean view.

Ce que nous allons vivre
  • Nous quittons le port pour nous rendre dans une superbe attraction touristique : le téléphérique Busan Air Cruise, qui plane au-dessus de la baie de Songdo avec des cabines panoramiques à dix places, suspendues entre deux pylônes fixés directement dans la mer.
  • La baie de Songdo, longée par une plage de sable et de galets homonyme, se trouve à seulement trois kilomètres du centre de Busan, une destination particulièrement populaire parmi les citadins, désireux de fuir les embouteillages de la ville.
  • Nous montons à bord du téléphérique pour une traversée aérienne de la baie riche en émotions, en admirant des panoramas spectaculaires sur la mer et la ville.
  • Nous descendons sur la *plage de Songdo, cernée par de magnifiques reliefs couverts de végétation et par un littoral orné de pins, où nous pouvons nous accorder une pause de détente en faisant une balade et en admirant la beauté de la rencontre entre le bleu de la mer et le vert intense des forêts environnantes.
  • La plage abrite un pont suspendu, le Songdo Beach Skywalk, qui serpente sur les eaux de la baie comme un dragon sinueux, dont les formes s’inspirent de la légende d'un jeune pêcheur amoureux de la fille du roi dragon, seigneur de la mer.
  • Nous parcourons le pont suspendu en vivant l’émotion de ne faire qu'un avec la mer grâce aux sections transparentes de la passerelle, en verre trempé, qui créent l’illusion de marcher sur l’eau, tandis que le son des vagues sert de bande-son à cette magnifique expérience et que devant nos yeux défilent de vastes panoramas d’une incroyable beauté.
