Take the time to visit this location!! The trails are ready to walk and the stairs to the lighthouse and rock below are ready to navigate. Scenery is breathtaking at points.

We took bus No.30 right in front of the Tourist Information Center (Nampo-dong Subway Exit 2). The fare is KRW1500 and the bus stops at the last stop at Taejongdae. There's no entrance fee but you can take the slow train (KRW2000/person) to go around Taejongdae. There are 4 stops in total. Or you can opt to walk. We took... More

Took a bus from Nampo station, followed the crowd into the park. No way you will get lost because of the huge crowd. Be there early if you plan to cover everything, we spent around 4 hours for the entire park by foot. Unforgettable sea view! But you have to pay the price by walking alot! It's all worth it!...

Offered superb views, and being a popular tourist location, best to go early. A stiff up slope before reaching the ticket booth, so take note! I strongly recommend a visit to this place if you have a good 3-4hrs to spend .

The reason why we decided to visit Busan partly because of Taejongdae. As I heard lots of good views and I don't want to miss it too. To visit this place it will be good to join the Busan City Tour. My advise alight at this place first, good to walk around in the morning. You will need 2 hours... More

Quite a far place to visit in Busan, as you can't access Taejongdae with metro. We took no. 88 from Nampo and it took around 20-30 minutes, Taejongdae was the last station (should be the case for most buses going near there) so I didn't have to worry about getting off. Unless you are having a long trip in Busan... More

A beautiful coastal area that offers a view of forest, cliffs, sea, cultural statues and a small temple. No longer accessible by private car, you can ride the circuit by tram, walk, or take a boat around the periphery. Many people take the tram to the viewpoint so they can linger and walk the rest of the way. A lot... More

Directions: bus 8, 88 or 30 from exit 6 of nampo station. Take till the last stop. Easy walking on paved path, with some up and down slopes. Scenery is nice with great views of the ocean. For people who like to hike, try igidae coastal walk. We think igidae is better.

When you get off from the bus, some people will try to sell you a boat tour of Taejongdae. Actually, at 10,000 won per person, it is worth it. It takes about 35 minutes and you get great views of the cliffs and of the sea. Much better than walking / riding the bus.

Beautiful and meaningful site. There is legendary story of King Taejong of Unified Shilla dynasty. Rocky beach scenery is really beautiful and light house also beautiful. There is pebble beach, it is also beautiful.
