    New year countdown at Busan
    Our family had an unforgettable countdown party at Busan Tower. It is our first time spending the New Year in a foreign land. There were many policemen controlling the crowds. There were free heat pack, snacks and coffee at the count down. This is so thoughtful of them. The countdown ends with short fireworks and the crowds is not rowdy. We had a fun time taking photos and enjoying live music. Truly a great night spent in Busan.

    Enjoyed the tower lights
    We enjoyed our night time visit to the Diamond/Busan Tower. We would have gone up but we arrived after the last call for entry. We did enjoy checking out the souvenir shop and the Yongdusan Park the tower is in. Closest metro is Nampo station exit 1 and there's an escalator to take you up to the Yongdusan Park. We spent an hour walking around the tower to check out the park and probably would have enjoyed a day time visit to see the port area and landscape from the observatory of the tower.

    Fantastic views
    We were on a cruise and took a shuttle bus into town which dropped us off near the fish market. We strolled through the shops and alleys up toward the tower, took the steps and paths up to the base of the tower and purchased tickets. The tower itself offers fantastic views of Busan and surrounding areas. There were gamified activities to help keep younger visitors occupied but we focused on the views. The walk to and from the tower was just as entertaining.

    Great views!
    This attraction is definitely one of the first places you need to go to when you arrive in Busan. If nothing else it helps you to get your bearings re how the city is laid out and what is worth going to see. The views are stunning and you can stay at the top for as long as you like once you're in. There is also a gift shop and a cafe available so you can grab a drink and have a nice sit down whilst staring at the view. Its not crazy cheap but it is worth doing and the area around the tower is nice too. They have escalators that you can use to get up to the tower or you can use the cable car. We went up in the cable car and down in the escalators which I enjoyed because they have fab neon signs in those covered escalator areas.

This is similar to the Seoul Tower and the prices not cheap, but not a communication tower, and used only for entertainment purposes. It is 390 feet tall and is at Yongdusan Park. It was built in 1973/ It does offer good views of Busan.

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...

Located in Yongdusan Park, Busan Tower gives you views over the city and the sea. You take an elevator to the 5th (top) floor and then go down to the two lower floors with their colourful displays. We had fun with the various interactive computerised elements - putting your photo in a submarine, lying on a moon, the neon displays, the mirror room, a lit up city room and then hanging out on the top deck with the piano available for use. There is coffee available.

Mehhhh
12000 won to get to the top..view is nice but not spectacular. Far too crowded and windows are dirty so you can’t see clearly. Not 360degree views- more like 180. Then you are led down to a series of small exhibitions. Not great- there are better views elsewhere in the city.

Nice. Lovely views. Very child friendly. Lot's of interactive games. I went during the day as the tower is located in Yongdusan Park and I wanted to see this as well so I combined the two. I walked around the park first and then went up the tower. There is a self-service ticket machine so you need to pay with a card. Going up and down is quick. The observation deck is small but views were nice and it wasn't that busy. There are shops and eateries below once you have finished your visit.

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.
