Busan tower and Yongdusan park Are Busan's old and historic land mark. However, compare to anyother cities like seoul, Tokyo or singapore, this is a lot small in size and less attractive in many ways. recommend for simple exercise like jogging or walking.

We literarily chanced upon the park. We were shopping in the BIFF shopping area, as we walked, we found this escalator that leads up to a temple. As we were marveling about the fact of finding a temple in a busy shopping district, we found more escalators leading uphill. Out of curiosity, we just went up and up. By the... More

The park itself is just that, trees, walkways, some flower and bench to sit on. It has public toilet and some souvenir shop. There's also an art gallery on the way to the tower. Within the park is Busan tower. The tower itself about 180m high with 4000KRW entry fee, gives 360 view of the city. There's a cafe bar... More

We went to Yongdusan Park as we have some extra time on our hand. I would say that the park was nothing spectacular. It looks like a pretty normal park. Maybe it will look better in Autumn when the leaves change color. As for the Busan Tower, again it didn't really wow me. The tower is old and really needs... More

The only con is that my dslr picked up the imperfections in the window.... Other than that, this park is awesome and easy to reach from Nampo station. There are a series of escalators that lead you to the tower too, unlike the steep hills of Seoul tower (nam san)

Easy access to this park as there are elevators on your way up (but not during your way down, tiring!) You will get amazing view of Busan city from top and if you need more spectacular view, just proceed with Busan tower observation deck nearby. Nice fresh air up there, away from bustling city of Busan, but nothing much could... More

There are other places in Busan that offer you panoramic view of the city, e.g. Lotte Dept Store, you don't have to come to the Busan Tower just for that especially when the weather is bad. In essence, Yongdusan Park offers nothing more than a panoramic view of the city. Nothing special. Take the escalator from Gwangbok Road up the... More

We decided to take a bus and travel on the other side of the island to see this park. It was a nice and warm day, and we decided to buy within-park-train tickets and also walk in the park. We really enjoyed walking at peace outside of the city traffic and noise.

You can have a nice view of the city without having to go up the Busan Tower (which is located in the park). There is not much to do here except relax and chill-out. The series of escalators on the way to and from the park makes for easy access.
