This is a gorgeous temple and very accessible by car or bus. No subway runs up this way though from what I can tell. The grounds are well kept and people are foreigner friendly. Bring a selfie stick or a tripod if you want good photos!!

It's a nice quick place to visit. Not many steps to climb. Many street food as well as small gift articles or souvenir shops to choose from.

You are suggested to plan 1) having snow crab for lunch in (2 hours) and visit Haedong Yonggung Temple 3) by taxi (not more than 10,000 won) or on foot (30 mins) Lotte Premium Outlets - Dongbusan Branch (롯데 프리미엄아울렛 동부산점) where the three venues are located on the same route. Haedong Yonggungsa Temple is situated on the coast of... More

Haedong Yonggung Temple is one of my favorite places to see in Busan. The temple itself is beautiful. The fact that it is located by the clear blue ocean is a plus. The statues which made of rock are fascinating. This temple where local people go so you will be able to see many religion ceremonies performed there.

We took the #100 bus from Haeundae and walked to the temple. The temple is on the ocean and has a number of Buddha's, the Korean zodiac statues, many different statues hidden in the brush and many buildings. There are lots of stairs, so beware if you don't walk well. The gift shop has many different beads, bells and books.... More

Took a bus from Haeundae station and ended up at the main road. It took us another 15-20mins before reaching the temple entrance. If you don't feel like walking in, you can take a cab in and it should cost you less than KRW10000. The entrance of the temple is cluttered with many stalls selling all sorts of things from... More

Visited this beautiful sea view temple that is a distance from the city. Very picturesque and you will be taking lots of photos here for sure. Take subway line 2 and get off @ Haeundae Station. Exit 7 and take a taxi to the temple. Once you see the big Lottery Factory Outlets you are almost there. Fare around KRW8,000.... More
