I joined the city tour bus and it is one of the attraction included. If you have more time to spare, it will be good to visit.

We got lucky, we made it in time to see the UN flag being lowered during a short ceremony. Everything is explained well. The place is solemn but good to remember those that fought to give South Korea freedom. Grounds are well taken care of. The memorials are touching, even for those not into military history. It is near Busan... More

I had just enough spare time in Busan to do one thing, and this is what I chose. My father was stationed at Pusan during the Korean War, and that made me curious. The Cemetery is worth a visit if you want a quiet mood, important history, and a well-accessible excursion.

I visited the memorial park to pay respect to the South Africa Air Force pilots who fought during the Korean War. The park is very well looked after and provides an escape from the busy city of Busan. It is an important site to visit for anyone interested in the history of the Korean War

I decided to visit the UN cemetery in Busan among the other attractions of the city because it is the only one of the kind in the whole world. It was not very easy to find it, but the local people helped a lot, even when they didn't speak english. As predicted, it is a place full of meaning and... More

A truly beautiful memorial park. I like to come here to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. Aside from the monuments, there is a chapel and lots of information about the Korean war. The gardens are always well maintained and a joy to stroll around. Plus, there is no fee - well worth visiting!

I went to this place with my girlfriend on a trip from Seoul. The history of this place is something amazing and the whole place is very well taken care of. The different types of flowers throughout make it really something worth seeing!

It is a memorial park for UN solders killed in Korean war. There are church, small gallery and monument. My sun and me visited this memorial park according to my sun's wish which he would pay silent tribute. I pay a tribut to their sacrifice.
