Autumn Soul Day 5 – Busan – Gwangbokro Fashion Street & Hur Shim Chung Spa

From Taejongdae Resort Park we took the bus to Lotte Department, the first full fledged department store in Busan.

Lotte Department Store Busan is located on the bustling streets of Seomyeon along with the Lotte Hotel, forming the shopping and leisure culture of Lotte Town.

Nearby the department store, various forms of entertainment are available such as the Lotte Cinema, a wide selection of restaurants, and a luxury brands district.


All looks Delicious.. Hard to make decision

Even their basement supermarket offers a variety of food and are all well packed.

After the munching food from almost every stalls available, we walked to Gwangbokro Fashion Street.

Located in Gwangbok-dong, this street with over 100 shops offer a wide array of items from clothing to jewelry, cameras, electronics, folk crafts, and luxury items captures the heart of fashion, art, culture, and shopping in Busan.

Non stop shopping ^^

After a tiring day, is relaxation time, we visited Hur Shim Chung Spa, one of the oldest spas in Korea. It is located opposite Nong Shim Hotel.

The waters contain abundant magnesium, and temperature is around 55℃. This massive hot spring complex claims to be the largest in Asia with hot, tepid, cold and strawberry milk-filled baths, saunas, pools, and an outdoor section.

On the 3rd floor is a large jjimjilbang resting area, containing (among other things) a restaurant, a beauty salon, an oxygen room, and three ‘igloos’ heated to 81°C, 51°C and 0°C.

We would say it was total relaxation. Oh ya one more thing, every one must be total nude in this spa, there is a separate section for male and females though.
