Yongdusan Park, Busan
(3.9/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
Climb the 129 m (423 ft) high tower to observe Busan at Yongdusan Park, a small hilltop park adjacent to a busy shopping area. Spanning 69,000 sq m (742,709 sq ft) with 70 different species of trees, the park also houses two museums: one with world folk instruments, and the other with 80 boat models ranging from traditional yellow-hemp sailboats to modern yachts. Look for the 12 m (37 ft) high statue of Yi Sun-sin, a 16th-century naval commander who repelled a Japanese invasion. Take a break from busy city life and calmly observe it from the park's viewing area (though you'll need to manage some steep stairs to get there). For travelers who use our world travel planner, Busan holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Yongdusan Park and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • 從南蒲洞購物大道上去,一路上去有手扶梯,不用“上山”上得喘氣。其實公園沒有很高,腳力好或年輕人不妨走手扶梯旁的樓梯上山。下山沒有手扶梯,但也不需要用太多的腳力啦。公園裡的釡山塔風景不錯,白天和夜晚的釡山有不的面貌,這裡跟首爾塔一樣,可以掛愛情卡片和愛情鎖,商店有售賣愛情鎖和韓國的紀念品。 
  • the park is on top and the shopping street is below. After you see the historical side of Busan, you can see modern Busan right after travelling down the escalator 
  • a lovely park on top of a busy shopping district! best view and a relaxing mood to capture good vibes

  • Nice place to stroll in and enjoy good views of Busan. But I felt that it was a bit crowded.
  • Worth a visit, there is a lot to see, it was a little tricky for us to find the entrance but we were glad we found it. Busan towers is also there, we paid 5000 won per person, it was nice view but I thought Lottee Mall view was enough for free.
  • It on a little hill top not very difficult to walk up since you have escalators. Very beautiful from the top. You can nearly see a 180 degree panaroma from up.
  • In the centre of Busan city with great view of the city from the tower...which is quite inexpensive compared to other such towers...park and tower is relatively less crowded for a wonderful and peaceful experience..near to it is happening and chic city centre with art streets and street food fairs
  • It was ok! The place has quite some history and one time i got lucky and met a voluntary guide who could tell about it!
