We went hiking and chose Beomeosa Temple as the starting point. It provides free simple vegetarian free lunch every afternoon. Taste is okay, but it is a good experience. Remember to wash your own bowls before leaving

If you want to see something traditional place in Busan, which is mainly focused on modern and cutting edge culture, this place is totally worth it. Take a bus (1300won in cash for one way) from Beomeo-sa station and get off. You can see old and stunning view

Nice enough temple, but boring compared to its Japanese counterparts, and without the same serene surroundings. However, it is a very nice starting point for a walk, so drop by if you are in the area anyways.

I took subway to Beomosa station (Line 1). The direction to bus stop no. 90 is not visible after you exited from the station. Anyhow, I found the directional sign and the bus stop after looking to and fro the surrounding. Certain areas at the temple is undergoing restoration work. The scenery (with autumn foliage) is beautiful. There are hiking... More

'Need to be in rubber shoes to visit this place. To reach the area, uphill strides are required. It's quite far from the bus stop. I don't recommend going here if you are not in good shape or is incapable of long walks likewise to the elderly tourist. Take metroline 1, get off at Beomeosa Stn. Exit 5. After the... More

To be honest, I was a little disappointed with the visit. read the description online and was looking forward to it. The surroundings were breath-taking, with the beautiful trees taking in the seasons and all. But as a temple, it's nothing fascinating. there were only a few statues and the bell towers were closed to the public. For rhe distance... More

We had a lovely visit in early November, mostly due to the gorgeous maple trees surrounding the area. It was fairly easy to get to from Seomyeon, but a longer subway ride so best if you can find a seat on the subway. We walked for about 2 minutes uphill after exiting the subway and saw the large bus stop... More

The site was very easy to access from Beomeosa Station, just take the #90 bus which loops around the area, get off at the Beomeosa Ticket Station, and you are there! We were very lucky when we visited on Nov 10, as the maple trees were all changing colors and the view from up top was magnificent! It's not a... More

In terms of temples in Korea and around Busan, this one was pretty ordinary feeling but very busy. Lots of people seem to visit and a bit of an incline to get to the main grounds. Still quiet and you could buy a tile for 10,000KRW to write on and donate to the temple. Definitely not as impressive as some... More
