"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

Very well kept and serene cemetery, giving a respectful resting place for these soldiers. If you are interested in history, especially the Korean war, this is well worth a visit.

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.

We visited this on a quiet afternoon. I was pretty surprised by how immacualte the grounds and gardens have been maintained. Their are soldiers from a multitude of countries and each country had their own little section. It's a nice walk but I wouldn't reccomend it over other attractions in Busan. It's also a bit of a walk from the... More

Tour guide had first hand experience of the attraction. Despite the fact that it is a reminder of lives that were lost, the attraction is the best tribute and recognition of the efforts... More

The cemetery is a nice tribute to the soldiers from all around the world who fought and died in the Korean War. The grounds were not very well kept with bird poop all over headstones and tall overgrown grass. It's also very large, excessively so for the number of people interred here. Once you make it to the bottom you... More
