For where Dongnae station is located on the subway, you would think it would be a lot more popular then it is. For the most, every time I have visited the Dongnae Station area, I hardly see another foreigner. Maybe I have some bias towards Dongnae or maybe it’s just not that well known so people tend not to venture there. Don’t get me wrong it is not a big as Seomyeon, doesn’t have a beach like Haeundae or doesn’t have a large seafood market like Jagalchi but if you are wanting to eat somewhere that isn’t exactly too touristy then Dongnae has what you need. There are plenty of restaurants and bars here to spend the whole night (you won’t need to go to another place after this), and the best part, it very convenient.
Looking at the Busan Subway Map, you can see Dongnae is easily accessible to many other places around Busan including Busan National University, Haeundae Beach, Shinsegae and Seomyeon.

Anyways, I hope you enjoy my pics from my time there 🙂
I hope you enjoyed my snaps and that you feel it was enough to convince you to visit the Dongnae Station area on your current or next trip to Busan. If you do go please leave me a comment on any recommendations you may have and I’ll be sure to check it out.

Hi! I’ll be going to Busan in November this year. Dongnae seems a great to catch some dinner. which exit did you use in Dangnae Station to start your journey?
You can Exit Dongnae Station(on Line 1) through exit number 2 or 4 (then simply walk down the main street in between those two exits 2 & 4). While walking down the main street look down side streets on your left 🙂
If you only have 1 or 2 nights in Busan, I would recommend Gwangalli Beach and/or Seomyeon as they are a bit busier etc. If you really like the look on the Dongnae Station area then it’s still a perfectly good area for eating and drinking.
Can I know the location where the tents are? Will it be opened on the first week of Sep?
Hi Nic, these tents were set-up as part of a small food festival as such but I believe it has been discontinued. If you are looking to eat food from tents then I can recommend 2 really good places.
First one being in Seomyeon:
And the second one in the Nampodong/Jagalchi area:
Any questions please let me know 🙂
