There is no long lines unlike other tower in the world. The trip to the top is about 2 to 3 minutes and smooth ride. The top rounds view deck is small but not crowded. There is gift shop to buy souvenirs. The views is 360 degrees and awesome look of the whole city from the mountains to the coast and beaches. Upon descending the before the exit, there are photo opportunity like the four seas room and neon city lights room to enjoy taking pictures.

The Busan Tower - 부산타워 is an extension of the The Yongdusan Park - 부산타워 and it provides a really good view of most Busan's Skyline and the coastal line.

The place is also very relaxed and good to be visited any given day. Sunny or cold.

We recommend this place once more as a very good site to cover and a place that will provide you with very good view points to take outstanding and clear pictures over viewing Busan. Enjoy.

When I was in Busan, many Korean people suggested us to go to the tower because it's a must to do for tourists. Once we arrived there, we saw the magnificence of the tower and the beautiful skyline of Busan. Unfortunately it wasn't possible to reach the roof because under maintenance but we had the same a nice experience. If you like landscapes, it's the perfect place for you because on the way you can see traditional Korean gardens. Once on the top, that's it...

Took a lot of cool pics at Busan Tower. Was a cloudy day, but it was still nice and scenic.
Fairly cheap to get in around 8,000 won. Ask for the popcorn set for two.
Nice walk there, and around the area.

Like any observation towers, Busan Tower is the flagship observation tower of the city, offering a 360 degrees view of Busan and the surround area. To get here, you only have to walk from Nampo metro station, take an escalator from Gwangbok-dong street and through Yongdusan park.

Unlike other observation towers however, Busan Tower's entrance price is relatively cheap at 8,000 won. You can also get combo packages like a burger and drinks with your ticket for a slightly higher price, but there are many food places nearby so it's not really needed.

Loved the view from the tower as you get to see the city, sea and mountains. Quite relaxing to just walk around, relax and enjoy the view. You can also spend as long as you like in the tower. There is also a coffee place near the tower and they also have quirky photograph opportunities at the exit of the tower.

Do play the game at the observation deck too (it's a a machine that you need to pose for pictures), where you can win discount for the coffee place or Seoul Tower entrance tickets!

A relaxing activity that I would highly recommend.

The escalator ride up to tower stage is interesting with varied colours. Well kept park around the tower on a hill top.
A small Buddhist temple located on lower section welcomes people to first floor prayer room.
Fees payable at tower base for ride up Busan Tower. A good time with fine visbility looking into surrounding areas from Lotte mall to Busan port area, etc.

Went up here during the night time and was overwhelmed by the view. You have the view of the harbour bridge which looks amazing at night and after your done with the view, you take the elevator to level 4 and you enter rooms that are fun to take pictures in.

Went in the evening just before sunset and it was not crowded and very very peaceful. A must-go place, quite iconic of Busan and lovely overview of the coastal lines and areas around.

Touring of Busan Tower and surroundings are a must see if you are in the area. It’s worth the the challenge of the staircases (looks like stairway to heaven), but not to worry there are escalators as well. It was good that we have just finished a very filling lunch at the famous fish market, because we got to burn off the extra calories. We walked by the famous Busan film festival location in the town center, as well as and other attractions on the grounds of the Tower. The view was spectacular, and there were periods pieces of furniture and miniature replicas of Busan of the pass inside the Tower. We had a fun time posing for keepsake pictures in the designated locations and our guide Grace took many group pictures for us. I reallly really loved Busan and its rich history. You will love too. See some pics below.
