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!

From the shopping street at Nampodong, there is a secret passage with a strings of escalator lining up one after the other. Once you finish taking the last one, you are at yongdusan park.

An easy walk from the main town and worth a look. Busan is quite a clean and pretty city but not what I would rate as a top tourist destination. There is no entrance fee unless you want to go into the Museum.

our motel was in the vicinity, and it so happened the trees that line the road to the park were in their golden autumn glory, and the breeze help lay a thick carpet of golden leaves on the winding path...the sight was simply postcard perfect...besides it is just an escalator ride up from the fashion street in Nampo, and you...

There's an escalator up (but stairs down) from the nice Gwangbokro Street (the one with the brass statues on it) to get you up to the park, thankfully - look for the covered escalator/stairs. The park / plaza area is quite pretty in itself with some photo ops - a nice little traditional bell building, and a couple of statues.... More

The Yongdusan park is easy to find and easy to get to being central to the main city . surrounded by some great shopping areas that are packed on the weekend . the Park is relatively small but worth the walk around with the highlight being the tower. At 4000 wan or approx $4 it is worth the money the... More
