Any one who has read about the Korean War should visit this cemetery. It is nicely laid out with plenty of trees and flowers. The visitor centre provides a short video giving the background to this cemetery. .

The UN Memorial Cemetery is a well administered, beautifully maintained final resting place for many allied soldiers who died during the Korean War. If you have time during your visit to Busan, drop in for a couple of hours and walk around this solemn but magnificent place...

"We engrave your names in our hearts with love, We inscribe your names in our land with appreciation" is the beautiful sentiment written on the Wall of Remembrance at the UN Memorial Gardens. The gardens, cemetery, monuments, and the museum are well maintained. Highly recommend visiting here to reflect and remember history and those who were lost.

Interesting to see all the countries that participated in the Korean War in the 50s. Korea appears to be grateful

The only cemetery in the world dedicated to soldiers of the United Nations who gave their lives during the Korean War 1950 - 1953. Memorials honour the dead and there is an interesting exhibition Hall.

Immaculately kept, the gardens at the UN Memorial Cemetery make for a very solemn experience. The sculptural elements of the cemetery towards the back, the US Wall of Remembrance and the UN Memorial are very impressive. The Daunt waterway is also a nice touch, very subtle.

I thought it would be just like any other cemetery but it was very beautiful, even in the rain. People who have relatives who fought in the Korean War will especially get emotional. I like how there are koi swimming among the graves. You'll understand what I mean when you go there.
