The escalator leading to the park is in between rows of shops. The tourist information centre is about 5 mins walk away. It gives a good view of Busan city. If you are visiting nearby attractions such as Jalgalchi market and BIFF, you can visit this park easily.

Easy to reach from Nampo-dong or from Busan main station. There are even escalators to help you reach the summit. The view over the bay of Busan and the surrounding islands and mountains is well worth the visit.

I stayed at Elysee Motel which is just a slope down from Yongdusan Park. Didn't take the stairs as the walk up looked quite steep. Instead, I used the escalator from the main shopping street to go up. Very tranquil place and great for an early morning walk. If you stop halfway up the escalator you will enter an exercise...

This park is in the midst of some very busy markets, shopping malls and restaurants in the Jagalchi area of Busan so it is very convenient to get to. There are a few ways to go up if you want to walk or you can take the escalator up at the main entrance and walk down. There is a temple... More

Definitely worth checking out during the NYE celebrations. The ringing of the bell is cool. Everyone in the park received a balloon which we all released at midnight, which was a cool sight. Added bonus to our visit: we were interviewed by radio station to talk about new year's celebrations in Busan. Couldn't tell you much more about the park,... More

I came here the day before leaving the country to come home after a long work trip. The walk up to the tower was a little steep but pleasant. The tickets are reasonably priced for what you get to see. The elevator and observation deck were a little crowded, but nothing too bad. There is still ample room to see... More

This place is pretty much a solidified tourist attraction for foreigners and Koreans alike. However it has priceless views of the city and is a must on a clear bright day. Don't waste to much time there just get in, get to the top, and get those pictures.

I decided to hike up the side (skipping the escalator) and was very pleased with the scenery that accompanied the short trek. The top of the park offers a beautiful panoramic view of the city, and the tower is a great photo-op. Is it touristy? Hell yeah. But if you're a tourist in Busan, it's worth a gander!
