I love this place very much. I walked uphill along the coast and went to the observatory and saw many special rocks. I walked through a forest downhill. Relaxing and enjoyable.

Nice walk around the headland with a few opportunities to see the good views. The walk took about 2.5 hours allowing for short stops to appreciate the views. Lots of beautiful big trees for shade along the way. There is a tran that you can use if you don't want to walk, it will stop at the viewing areas. You... More

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.
