This roll was taken on day 5 of the trip. We started the day with a trip to Jagalchi Fish Market...
And then went on to Beomeosa, constructed in the year 678 and one of the leading temples in South Korea. The temple was getting ready for the celebrations of the birth of the Buddha by covering the temple with thousands of lanterns. It made for really gorgeous images. In fact, all the temples we went to had all these lanterns hanging about. So beautiful!

After the temple, we went to Gwangali Beach for some nightlife! That is one happening by the beach street. Little pubs and coffee shops line the beachfront, with seaside jazz performances and fireworks setting off all the time. The vibe was amazing! And there's the Gwangali Bridge, which changes colour every few minutes, gorgeous!

And then we had to leave Busan for Gyeongju the next day via a train journey.
|don't you just love surprisingly awesome multiexposures? :)|
And soon, we were in Gyeongju! We stayed at Hanjin Hostel, which is a really old and a Gyeongju institution in its own right. There really isn't much choice for digs in hostel for backpackers unless you want to stay at a motel which is seedier...
More of Gyeongju in the next couple of rolls...
