UPDATE: There has been an outpouring of comments on the story about specialized zones being featured this summer on Haeundae Beach first reported May 11 on Busan eFm radio.
The Haeundae office has clarified that there is absolutely no segregation involved with the new programs and they are simply doing this with the needs of visitors in mind.
- The “foreigner specialized area” is designed to be free from parasols to accommodate those who want to suntan.
- The “China Zone” will feature special booths and services catering to Chinese tourists.
- The “Kid Zone” is a new section made possible due to the project to increase the size of the beach by bringing more sand to the shore. This new area has been designed with children’s safety in mind.
The District Office of Haeundae plans to prepare specialized zones this summer, for children and foreigners at Haeundae Beach.
A children-only “Kid Zone” will be set up at the far left end of Haeundae Beach.
The office plans to create a shallow seawater pool for children, equipped with safety facilities, including tubes and buoys.
A 50m foreigner-only space will also be created, free of beach parasols, beside the Kid Zone.
For Chinese tourists, a “China Zone” will be open from the 29th of this month, which coincides with the Haeundae Sand Festival.
