It was amazing to see this, especially if you are from one of the countries that helped. There is a flag Ceremony in the morning and evening. I went to the 4pm one for lowering the flag (times vary depending on season) definitely cool to see if you have time to go, even for a quick walk around which took... More

The UN Cemetery in Busan South Korea is beautiful and well worth a visit. All those who gave their lives from 16 different countries in the Korean War are acknowledged. Many are buried in this cemetery. It is great to wander around but you are not allowed to walk on the grass amongst the gravestones. There is a memorial wall... More

Definitely worth to visit. Beside the history (you can get some introduction movie and visit the halls) is the area perfectly arranged. The trees, the quiet atmosphere and also the flowers (roses still End of November) makes this place to a relaxing stop after visiting the bustling city of busan.

Surrounded by the concrete jungle of a dynamic city is this beautifully put together memorial. I remember the first time I went here and how the openness and green landscape made me feel at ease. There are multiple paths running through the cemetery and will bring you to the well designed memorials for the participating nations. The USA memorial includes... More

Arrived there at 4 PM in time for the lowering of the flag ceremony by the guards. Well-laid out and excellent landscaping.

This is a lovely, quiet and well tended military cemetery dedicated to the war dead from the Korean War. The landscaping is superb and the atmosphere serene. Each participating nation has a seperate section. A walk around puts war in perspective and certainly displays the gratitude of the Korean people.

The best way to get there is by taking one of the Busan City tours (hop on / hope off). Only Won 15,000 for the entire tour, which can last the entire day leaving in front of the train station. It is one the major stops on this tour. I have to admit that I did not realize how many... More

We did not plan to visit it originally. But once we decided to take the City Tour and it was the first stop on the route, we figured we would make a quick stop there. It was a pleasant surprise. We ended up spending an hour there. The grounds are well tended with beautiful trees and flowers. It is clear... More

A visit to the UN Cemetery will not disappoint. The grounds are beautiful, and everything is very respectfully done. I recommend the UN flag ceremony that happens every morning and afternoon when the UN flag is being raised and taken down. The ceremony in whole only takes about 10 minutes and was just a little added bonus. In October the... More
