Its my 5th day in Busan. My itinerary for the day was a day trip to Jinhae for Jinhae Gunhangje Festival, which commenced from 1st April to 10th April this year. If you have read my earlier post, I didn't manage to book my train ticket to Jinhae. Tickets for the first train were sold out more than a week ago before 1st April. It turned out to be a blessing in disguise because I found out a faster and cheaper way to get to Jinhae from Busan. There's actually a direct bus from Seoubu Bus Terminal to Jinhae Bus Terminal. Mr Son also told me taking the bus is a much better option. He said he has never visit Jinhae Gunhangje Festival because he has to work very hard to support the family. He couldn't afford to be away from the motel. I hope he can have a good holiday with his family to Jinhae in the near future ^^
|At last,I got the chance to take a picture of Mr Son's scooter ^^|
This was the scooter that Mr Son took me to the eye specialist.
Well, I got not once but twice the honour to take this scooter.
You will know why on my last day in Busan ^^
|And saw this on my right. It was about 2 mins walk from exit 3.|
|I got some help from the security guard. He directed me. Basically, the bus terminal is located behind the building where I was. Just get round the building.|
|Finding my way to the bus terminal...|
Walk straight and turn left after the signage for "Lotte Cinema".
|Saw this again when I get behind the building. |
I think this is either the back or front of the building. Whichever..
I couldn't see the bus terminal but it was actually THERE!!!!!
McDonald's is just next to it.
|Entered the bus terminal and this was what I saw. |
Clean and spacious. It looked new to me.
|I went up to the counter to buy my ticket. |
The counter girl can speak simple English ^^
|I think this is the timing for the first and last bus to Jinhae.|
Bus interval about 15-20mins? Hahaha...that's only my guess.
|So cheap!!!! The bus fare to Jinhae is only KRW4700. Note that there's no seat number and time stated on the ticket, but the counter girl told me the bus leaves at every 20mins.|
|Locating the right exit to take my bus at platform 17.|
|Yup, here's the right exit. You have to show your bus ticket to this uncle.|
|Excited to take my first intercity bus trip. |
Ermm...was that considered an intercity bus trip?? I don't know. Hahahaa...
|Waiting at the bus bay for my bus ^^|
|Jinhae, here I come!!|
There were many stops along the journey to Jinhae but there was no toilet break.
Reached Jinhae. While travelling on the bus, I was attracted to this big signage that says,"Jinhae Fatima Eye Clinic". Does that mean this clinic was opened by a Malay lady who is residing in Jinhae? *Envy
