Gwangandaegyo [광안대교], that translates to Gwangan Bridge or Diamond Bridge, is counted as Busan’s landmark opened in 2003. Spanning a little over 7 kilometers, it is South Korea’s second longest bridge after Incheon Bridge. It can be seen clearly from Gwangalli Beach Busan [광안리해수욕장] and is an attraction especially at night when it is illuminated.

The bridge stretches across Busan’s neighborhoods Millak [Millak-dong/민락동] and Namcheon [Namcheon-dong/남천동], both located in the Suyeong District [Suyeong-gu/수영구].
