Dongnae, Dongnae Hot Springs

Dongnae, which retains the old history of Busan, is a historically important place in that Busan was called Dongnae-eup from an early age. Dongnaeeupseong Fortress is located in the center of Dongnae-gu. There was a fierce battle with the Japanese during the Japanese Invasion of Korea in 1592, and the souls of the generals and soldiers who died at that time are enshrined in Chungnyeolsa Temple.

Dongnae has long been well known as a hot spring area. In addition to large hot spring facilities such as Heosimcheong and Nongshim Hotel, there are foot baths called Dongspa City and Dongspa Topia, so anyone can enjoy the hot spring bath.

If you go from the hot spring to the mountain, there is Geumgang Park, and there is a cable car that goes up to Geumjeongsan Mountain from here, so it would be a good idea to go up if you have time. It is also connected to Geumjeongsanseong Fortress.

Sajik Baseball Stadium is home to professional baseball Lotte Giants, and many baseball fans gather here during the season, and you can see Lotte’s unique culture of cheering seagulls. And when it comes to Dongnae local food, the first thing that comes to mind is Dongnae pajeon. It’s one of the foods I really want to try when I come to Dongnae.
