The Beach

Some views of Gwangan Beach in Busan. Gwangan Bridge is in the background. Koreans don't really swim, they just wade out into the water or float on tubes. If you notice, all of the tubes look the same. As do all of the umbrellas. That's because you have to rent them. 5,000 Won for an umbrella, 3,000 Won for a little mat to sit on, and 3,000 Won for a tube. The other thing you might notice is that many of the people aren't wearing swimsuits. Seems that they just prefer to wear their clothes into the water, even if they have a swimsuit on underneath.

It was crowded, but not as crowded as I thought it would be. Then again, this is the less popular beach. Haeundae Beach is where most people go to.
