Know More about this tour

After you’re picked up from your hotel in Busan, relax aboard a comfortable coach during the 2-hour drive west to Changwon City. Then continue to nearby Junam Wetlands Park, a 705-acre (285-hectare) habitat for thousands of winter waterfowl — including the white-naped crane, spoonbill, baikal teal, bean goose and mallard — and summer birds such as the Chinese oriole, great leed warbler, cattle egret and white heron.

Upon arrival at Junam Wetlands, disembark the coach and follow your guide on foot in search of birdlife. As you walk quietly around the park, which attracts avid birders, pay attention to the sounds of chirping and wing flapping. While listening to this avian orchestra, focus your binoculars to spy your target species. Permanent residents like the spot-billed duck or pheasant are among the nearly 100 types of birds you may find with the help of your guide.

After this large dose of nature, you’re served lunch at a Korean restaurant.

Back aboard the coach, continue to Haeinsa Temple, considered one of the Three Jewel Temples of Korea. Located on Mt Gaya, Haeinsa was built during the Silla dynasty and represents the dharma, or Buddhist teachings. Learn about its notable collection of Tripitaka Koreana woodblocks, a series of carved scriptures from the 13th century.

Complete your full-day coach tour with a drive back to Busan, including drop-off at your hotel.
