Busan, Millak-dong, Millak Waterfront Park, Gwangan-Daegyo, Millak Raw Fish Town & Cafe Gelateria | 민락수변공원, 광안 대교, 민락회타운 & 카페 젤라떼리아

After dinner at Maniju Grill Eel, husband and I went for a quick stroll at Millak Waterfront Park  which is just about 100 meters away from the restaurant, to have a closer look of Gwangan daegyo - the Diamond bridge. 
Located between Haeundae Beach and Gwangalli Beach, Millak Waterfront Park (pronounce as Min-lak su-byeon gong-won 민락수변공원 in Korean) is famous with it's beautiful night view of Diamond bridge (Gwangan daegyo) and abundant raw fish restaurants and fresh seafood market along the street in front of the waterfront -local name it Millak Raw Fish Town.

There is no sandy beach here at Millak Subyeon Gongwon, only paved beach promanade that extended to the sea. We found many local citizens were picnic by the paver seaside enjoying Gwangan Daegyo night view at Millak Waterfront Park. Almost everyone is having raw fish and soju which can be get from raw fish center nearby.
