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.

  • Weekend break, only doing it at home to mother lang by holding back a bottle of water, simply going for a walk on the mountain seemed to do up to Park yongdusan went lost. I've heard rumors at night, during the day in Busan is to show really good panoramic view. The next time I'm going once at night. The weather is a little cold.

  • Take the escalator up to view Busan. Didn't go up the observatory but it should give a clear view of Busan. There is a souvenir shop too. 
  • Last time I went for lunch, I visited at night. The little lighted up at night is, and was. It is not that much just bother to visit.

  • 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!
