Gwangandaegyo [광안대교], which translates to Gwangan Bridge or Diamond Bridge, is counted as Busan’s key landmark. 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] – particularly at night when it is illuminated.
The bridge, which officially opened in 2003, stretches across Busan’s neighborhoods Millak [Millak-dong/민락동] and Namcheon [Namcheon-dong/남천동], both located in the Suyeong District [Suyeong-gu/수영구].
This bridge was featured on a stamp in the ‘2nd Bridge Series’ issued in 2007 by the South Korean Post.
