Not a traditional tourist destination, but one not to be missed for a reflective experience. About a 20 minute walk from the nearest metro station, next to the Busan Cultural Centre. The volunteers who are present to explain the photograph display add to the experience. As a UK National, the graves of so many fallen service men was humbling.

This memorial park is more than just a cemetary but also a place of education and reflection. It is of course the final repose of soldiers from 11 nations that supported the south during the war. It is also unique as it is the only UN cemetary in the world. You are asked to be quiet and respectful on entry... More

The grounds are well maintained. There is plenty of information about the cemetery at the main gate. Admission is free. Felt especially moved by the memorial wall listing the names of the fallen soldiers.

There is an option to watch a little video before you walk around and that was a nice added bonus of info prior to walking around. the place is adorned with pretty flowers and perfectly manicured lawns. We happened to be there for the flag changing and band playing, and that was... More

Even you are not a Korean, this place is definitely worth to visit. Those people who had to die for wars made me sad and feeling grateful. Very well maintained. Dress up not too casual please.

Beautifully laid out grounds. Very easy to tell which graves belong to soldiers from each country that participated. Also a very peaceful place. I'm sure that you could spend a few hours here, but we managed a walk-through in about 30 minutes, which was all we had, as they close at 6PM in the summer.

The immediate feeling when entering this cemetery, apart from the peace & serenity, is reverence. We were lucky enough to be there when the Korean flag was being raised and the emotions of not only myself but the people around us was quite amazing. Koreans saluted, men removed their caps and quite a lot wept, myself included. We inspected many... More

Wonderful place for Peace and beautiful place seeking people. You can feel peace, as no noise and visitor also not make any sound and just look at the nature and think about different country people sacrifices for Korea.

The UN Memorial Cemetery is a very peaceful and meaningful tribute to those who fought and died in the Korean War. There are memorials to each country who sent troops to help in the war. There is also a wall of the casualties for all those killed in action. The memorial is very well kept and easy to get to.... More
