South Korea’s Uncharted Appeal: TikTok Traveler Adriana Neptuna’s Discovery
Adriana Neptuna, an Australian-born TikTok traveler, is turning heads with her assertion that South Korea is not just a hotspot but is currently ‘on fire’ as a travel destination.
Expressing surprise at why the nation isn’t more popular among holiday-goers, Neptuna emphasizes the abundance of adorable activities available.
Busan’s Hidden Gem: The Sky Capsule
Neptuna specifically spotlights the Sky Capsule in Busan as a prime example of South Korea’s charm.
The Sky Capsule is a railway elevated to 10m (32ft), featuring colorful pods adorned with whimsical cartoon characters and retro designs.
Describing it as a ‘bucket-list activity,’ she praises the 360-degree views it offers, encompassing rugged coastlines, lush forests, mountain ranges, and the city of Busan.
Sunset Magic and Eco-Friendly Initiative
Neptuna shares her personal experience of taking the 1.2-mile (2km) journey at sunset, enhancing the magical atmosphere.
Operated by Haeundae Blueline Park, the Sky Capsule costs 30,000 South Korean won (£18) for a one-way journey for two people.
The park emphasizes the eco-friendly nature of the attraction, transforming an old abandoned railway as part of a broader regeneration project.
Private Pods and Rural Exploration
Each Sky Capsule pod accommodates four people, ensuring a private experience.
Neptuna lauds the regeneration project for encouraging tourists to explore rural areas along the coast of Busan, including captivating glass walkways extending into the sea. The attraction serves as a unique way to appreciate the region’s history and natural beauty.
Mixed Reviews and Traveler Recommendations
While Tripadvisor reviews for the Sky Capsule vary, with some labeling it overrated, others praise its beauty and uniqueness.
Neptuna advises future visitors to travel from Mipo Station to Cheongsapo to better appreciate the sea and then take the walking trail back to Mipo Station for a closer connection with nature.
Part of Busan’s Coastal Exploration
Haeundae Blueline Park offers various ways to explore Busan’s beachfront, including the Haeundae Beach Train and the Busan Green Railway, a coastal walking trail.
The Sky Capsule is positioned as part of an ‘eco-friendly redevelopment of the old railway facility of the East Sea South Line,’ contributing to the multifaceted charm of Busan’s coastline.
