I really enjoyed the vantage points on this walk. It is a very leisurely walk, not difficult to do. I've been here with just one other person, and also with a large group. I'd say the walks along the Busan coast are some of the best attractions.

This park needs a subway + bus ride to get there. Do take a pamphlet at the entrance, as it will show you the spots to look for in this tour (you can choose by train or on foot). From entrance, you need to walk a slightly slantly slope path, about 8 minutes, to the ticket office (you cant get... More

Taejongdae is another one of several nice Busan parks. The highlight of the park is the lighthouse and "museum." When we were there, several of the interactive displays were down for maintenance so there wasn't much information available. We did enjoy climbing to the top of the lighthouse. It was a little chilly the day we visited so we didn't... More

For us who come from Indonesia, the beach view is nothing special, except the rocks. Taejong dae has the light house and the path available to reach it. For us it is not special.

We got there pretty late in the afternoon at about 5pm. The good thing is there are very much lesser people. As we are fighting to get pictures with the remaining daylight, we decided to take the Danubi Train. It cost about 1500won per pax. The ride was pretty fast. We stopped at the observatory and in front of us,... More

What I liked the most is the light tower which offers a great view of the haeundae view afar and other islands. The park is well designed for tourists as we did not to walk too much between stations in the park.

To get to taejongdae, i would suggest you to take the day tour from busan station. Choose the route you... More

Takes a little while to get to on the bus if you are using public transport but relatively straight forward. When you get there you can queue to get a ticket for the tourist fun bus or if you are feeling energetic can walk. We did one lap on the bus realized that to walk it was probably better. Great...

The park is huge and so it's advisable to spare plenty of time if you want to see the most out of this place. If you're coming from Busan Station, cross the main road at front then take Bus88. This bus will terminate at the foot of Taejongdae Park so you don't need to worry even if you can't speak... More

One of the more popular tourist attractions in Busan and I must say that the scenery at the cliff and lighthouse is quite worth the visit. To get around the park, you will need to either walk (which is quite a distance if you have kids or elderly folks) or take its Danubi train. But be prepared for quite a... More
