    Day 5: Busan Tower and Nampo Area - South Korea

    Took the train to Nampo Station and headed to exit 1, I believe, and walk toward Busan Tower. It was easier to find than I expected. 

    After a few minutes of walk, we came across the escalator that would take us up to Busan Tower~  I was so glad that we didn't have to walk up~  

    There are about 3 sections of the escalation and we reached the top in about 5 minutes. Came across a monk place along the way.  Midway up the escalator, there is this Buddhist place.  Didn't get to check out what it is.

    Finally up, and just a little more stairs to actually reach the bottom of the tower~  It looks just like Seoul Tower. Well, kind of.

    Lots of love lock again.  Koreans love these kinda stuff.

    There really isn't much to do at the Busan Tower.  We didn't go up.  Thought it would be a waste of money and time.  In my opinion, I don't think the place is really worth going unless you are already in the area or if you really really really want to go up the tower.  After chilling around the tower for about 10 minutes, we got down back to the Nampo area.  The area looks nice but really not much to shop.  The clothes are not as nice as the ones in Seoul.  Very different style.

    Soon we reached the Gukje Market.  Not a lot of restaurants there.  It was more like a traditional market there.  Didn't have much things we wanted to buy

    Then we reached the Biff Square.  The street that is lined with street food.  I find street food in Busan are generally more expensive than Seoul.  Didn't find anything we wanted to eat.

    Lots of little stalls lined up along the street in the area.
