This is the only bascule bridge in Korea which is still lifting today.
But, it's only symbolic procedure and ships don't pass during it's open.
- Once a day at 2 pm.
- The rooftop garden of Lotte Department Store Gwangbok Branch is a good place to look down. The route to reach is a bit confusing in the mall by the way.

Yeongdodaegyo Bridge (oh wow, that was a handful to type) connects Busan’s mainland to the Yeongdo district on Yeongdo Island. It’s the first bridge that connected the island to the mainland. In its proximity to the ports, the bridge would lift to allow large ships to pass under it and people would gather here just to watch. Strange but true.

The Yeongdodaegyo do have a sad history it it. During the Korean War, many Koreans flea to Busan. As the mass migration occur, Busan became a refugee city for Koreans. They will wait at this bridge, looking out to the mainland to see if their families and friends were fortunate enough to escape. I hate to think about war, and the effects it would have on me if I was ever caught in the middle of one. But I do know this, I would do exactly what the Koreans would have done, wait on this bridge in the hopes of seeing family and friends again.

All men remain boys at heart and it was really cool to watch a bridge that lifts up to let the boats past. There is a free tour guide nearby who provides an interesting talk about the history of the bridge.

This bridge opens up each day at 14.00 and many tourists watch it. A nice touch is the road which has birds printed on it.

Symbolic of people separated during the war. It's raised once a day. If you really want to see it, go at 14:00. If you know someone with a war connection, go with them, hear their story, and contemplate the past. If you don't, you're going to have a hard time understanding why you're in a crowd of people watching a drawbridge raise.

Use as a bridge but all stop at 2 pm for 15 minutes, They will draw the bridge up - non functional but rather ceremonial. That is the best time to visit the bridge.

Its a important landmark as local said that during war time this is the meeting point for reunion with your family member. (rather sad to hear that)

We went on a rainy day and expected it to be empty but it was soooooo crowded with tourists and even locals!!

Yeongdodaegyo bridge is one with a sad history so you can search it up to give you more reasons to drop by this attraction.

It opens up once daily for bigger ships and yachts to pass by. Watch my video on my Instagram @xuantravelogue
