  • We spent around half an hour at a his beautiful and peaceful park. It was touching to see the final resting place for so many soldiers from different countries.  more »
  • Place kept very well. Immense spaces, among many plants each with an identification tag. The Korea does not forget what he lived and remembers all the Nations who were next door. There is a monument with the names of all the fallen and commemorative plaques in the participating countries. The Italy had a Red Cross Hospital and had no victims. There is an Arbour kept open by volunteers very friendly with very interesting period photos.

Where to stay in Busan

Established as a domestic tourist destination for a long while now, you'll find a good set of accommodations in Busan, a city becoming more and more equipped to cope with its burgeoning international reputation. Around Seomyeon station and slightly further to the northeast lie some of the most established options, with an abundance of hotels, hostels, and guesthouses in this highly commercial district. Head to the Haeundae beach district for a range of beachfront options, and more budget-friendly guesthouses in the side streets that lead away from the beach.
