This visit was a total eye opening experience. Seeing the number of people who gave up their lives for the freedom of the Korean people is quite impressive. The Wall of Remembrance names all of those who lost their lives, and it puts names to the huge numbers of casualties, with the most of them being from the USA. As... More

Nice peaceful place to visit. Cherry bloosom and other trees were so beautiful. If you visit war memorial museum in seoul first, you can appreciate this place more, but not sure if you can spend hours here though.

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
