When you talk about self-guided tour, you shouldn’t say that you have visited Busan if you haven’t been to the Yeongdodaegyo Bridge! During the Japanese occupation period, the first mainland-island connecting bridge in Busan was built to facilitate people’s transportation, which connected Jung-gu and Yeongdo-gu districts. Yeongdodaegyo Bridge is special and famous because it can open and close! The bridge is designed as a single-arm type. Once there are large ships pass between the south and north ports, one end of the bridge will rise


Do you want to see the power of this bridge? Then you have to wait until the moment of opening and closing! At 2 o’clock in the afternoon every day, one end of the bridge will slowly rise with music. When the bridge opens to about 75 degrees, nine painted seagulls will appear on the bridge deck, as if they are preparing to fly up high. Whenever this scene appears, it will attract people to watch and take photos!


This bridge is really special that worth visiting if you are in Busan!
