A small group of us decided to carry the night on and we visited a Hong Kong style restaurant with alluring decor called 용용선생 부경대점, or General Yong Yong (Naver maps link). The food was from Hong Kong cuisine, and it was great to chat at the comfortable booths. The service was prompt and the ambience was nice to hang-out and chat in.
If during your night out in Kyungsung university area you’ve had a few cocktails and you’re ready to belt out your favourite songs, it’s fun to visit a “noraebang” (노래방). These karaoke venues have cozy compartments outfitted with booming sound systems where you can sing from a wide selection of songs. You pay via cash and select the song.
If your friends and you have decided that the night has not ended, you can catch a taxi to Seomyeon. It’s best to have your destination written or displayed on your phone in Korean, as many taxi drivers won’t speak English.
It was in the early hours of the morning during my night out that I realised how intense the nightlife in Busan can be. At 4am, the streets were still humming with people. We tried to enter a club but only passports were accepted. I am 28 and the legal maturity of my appearance rarely is questioned. I don’t mind, it speaks to the diligence of operations in Korea, the rules are to protect people.
