Yongdusan Park, Busan

#3 of 36 in Parks in Busan
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 custom trip planner, Busan holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Yongdusan Park and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Before you go to HaitouTai, look at the Busan Tower. There are ladders up the shop street in Nanpu, but down the stairs. After arriving at the park, you can expect the view of the tower and Nampo.

  • Yongdoosan Park is a park located in the city center, where you can enjoy the scenery of Busan port and the city. Busan's landmarks include the Busan Tower, The Octagon, Yi Soon-sin's Statue, Citizen's Bell, and Flower Watch, making it a popular park for tourists both domestically and outside. You can climb from the side of Daecheong-dong and The Gwangbok-dong, but there is an escalation on the side of The Gwangbok-dong.

  • Nothing much to do except to enjoy the scenery. There's a cafe and restaurants there. Also a convenient shop. Duty free never to open. And busking performance
  • Quite a very nice and beautiful place in the midst of a city. However, too many tourists and clamoring to go up via the escalator. Great views at the top...
