Songdo Marine Cable Car is one of the best attractions in Busan City. The management operates the system daily. Its operation gears towards serving all excited visitors to see Busan from above the sea. It is resumed after 29 years out of service due to some reasons.
This ‘Air Cruise’ has been one of my major planned activities in Busan. Among my listed travel activities, I promised myself not to miss this exciting attraction.
Yes, I did it! Moreover, I was not so scared while inside the cable car alone and some meters above the sea. Whew! I got what I wanted--an experience and taking photos from above.
It was a soul-lifting experience, very different from my daily routine. I have seen the turquoise sea, boats and ships gliding. From above, I saw the rolling mountain range of Busan, the towering futuristic structures, the fine beach of Songdo, and everything my eyes laid on.
I will surely retake a ride when the opportunity comes. And I believe it would be a different experience and could be better than the first.
