The only good thing is it's cheap. Things feel dirty and doesn't seem like the walls of hot tub had been cleaned much. The sauna room all have tv in there and sound is turned up, so I can't relax in there. The common area has kids running around so I can't get a moment of silence. Even going into... More

Take this review with a grain of salt, because I've never been to a Korean spa before. Being a Caucasian, I did feel out of place, but certainly nor unwelcome. When you arrive, you pay your entry and are given a locker key. The key gives you two lockers, one right at the front desk for you shoes and valuables,... More

This place is huge! Purported to be the largest spa in Asia. Spa pools everywhere. From hot to cold. Mini swimming pool. Outdoor area. As with all saunas/spas in Korea, you're completely stark naked.

I have been to 4 spas {jimjibang) in Korea: Yongsan Dragon Spa & Silloam Fire Sauna in Seoul, and Hurshimchung. Hurshimchung is the biggest!! I loved it here! Indoor spa area is HUGH!! I have a wonderful time jumping from 1 pool to the next! Outdoor area is just 3 pools, 2 hot pools, 1 cold pool, & 1 sauna.... More

I was really exciting about this bath, hearing that there are milk and all these scented pools. There was none. The water doesn't even smell like a natural hot spring, more like a chlorine water (not as strong). Overall, it a nice relaxing place, but nothing really special about it. You need to bring your own shampoo/soap, there wasnt any... More

This is a well-kept, large and beautiful spa with multiple baths, tubs, saunas, etc. At 10,000 won this is a great deal; the jjimjilbang is an additional 2,000 won. (However, one certainly finds more impressive bathhouses in Eastern Europe and other places with a spa culture.) As pointed out by other reviewers, the wet areas are gender segregated and require...

There were many baths for us to enjoy. I personally enjoyed the Lemon bath, salt balt and jasmine bath. A section where you laid sitting and felt the hot onsen water flowing slowing through your skin was really enjoyable and relaxing. That section was near drink station. Value for money, enjoyed ourselves there!

I have never been to a Mokyotong (목욕탕). With that said, it was a great, relaxing experience. This is apparently one of the more famous saunas in Busan and in Korea. For the price of about 10,000 won for an adult, you'll be able to spend however long you want to relax in the separated (female or male) area. Each... More

Be careful when you pay the bill! They tried to charge me 23,000 won when the price was 10,000. Thanks God I paid attention on the total amount. When I refused to pay they explained me I was paying for 2! while I entered alone and that another person bought something in the bar. Truly very disappointing. The place is... More

If you can afford it, this huge spa is heaven. I've only been once here but I can say that the strawberry milk-filled baths are a bit too much. But no worries, there is something for everyone. The outdoor section is big and one of my favourites. I heard they get 4 million visit a year, but with a place... More
