Lots and lots of uphill walking but once we were there it was an awesome view of Busan. This was very educational and stunning to see.

it's far from Busan big city but the trip there is not difficult. Take the train to Beomeosa and then bus no 90 to the temple, dedicated. Or a taxi which cost 4000KRW up the hills from. Nice place and landscape but i went there during the summer so there was not much color to see. Like hiking, maybe a... More

The temple is up in the mountain, so we got up there by bus. I loved the view at the top as the surrounding areas around the temple were very mountainous and scenic. At the temple, we were greeted by an elderly volunteer guide who could speak very good English. His knowledge of the temple's history and his kind hospitality... More

Beomoesa is one of the most gorgeous temple sites - its very difficult to believe how close you are to the hustle and bustle of Busan proper here. I took the bus from the subway (exit 1, turn 180 degrees, follow the temple signs up the road - take bus 90) and it cost me 1300 ₩. The staff are... More

We went here as we were going on the hike up the mountain behind it and it starts here. Very pretty and serene although it was quite busy on a Sunday. Free guide service! We were shown around by a very nice elderly man with good English who is obviously passionate about the site.

After getting off the subway and walking up the street to the bus station you will need to catch the 90 bus that will cost 1300 won. The driver will tell you where to get off but it is only a short ride (15-20mins), you also catch the same bus back down from the same bus stop. The place is... More

We did an overnight Templestay at Beomeosa entitled "viewing the full moon." We really enjoyed it and have a few tips for others. First, I would suggest only bringing a small bag - like a backpack or duffle with what you need for the overnight. The main reason for this is that it's a pretty stout uphill walk from the... More

I planned to experience Korean Templestay which was introduced by Korean Tourism Organization to understand not only Korean Buddhism but, its practice, Korean culture and its unique Hanok style temple. With the limited time of my itinerary, I chose Beomeosa templestay in Busan instead of other well-known UNESCO status of temples and with no regrets at all now. I am... More
