This is a great spot to relax and observe the memorial. The entire complex is clean and there is free parking just outside the gate. If you have trouble finding it, it is right next to the Busan culture arboretum and the Busan museum. We didn't watch the film (we have a toddler that isn't quiet) but they did offer... More

My friends and I decided to walk through the UN Cemetery and I was very glad that we did. This is a fairly new memorial for the Korean conflict and you will see the cemetery segregated into the different countries. There is a wall for all of the American's who lost their lives in the conflict. There are over 30,000... More

From the moment you walk in with signs asking for your silence out of respect it was always going to be an emotionally moving experience. To see the 45 graves of the New Zealand soldiers that never made it home & the memorial statues made the experience very humbling. Would highly recommend catching the train out to this one.

A visit to this unique cemetery gives a further insight to the losses of war. The memorabilia halls gives an opportunity to become personal with the sacrifices made by the soldiers.

An appropriate place for reflection. Helpful guides. Limited information on why the Korean War happened. It would be good if this was upgraded so people can reflect and learn from mistakes which were made.

The memorial has extensive gardens that are nice to walk around. There are monuments to each country who participated in the UN coalition during the Korean War. Despite being in the middle of the city, it was oddly tranquil.

"Far exceeding" the Punchbowl in Honolulu, Hawaii and the one in Kanchanaburi, Thailand, this war cemetery occupies "quite spacious" grounds on which are beautiful multi-colored roses & neatly-trimmed shrubs among the memorial headstones (about 2,300 of them for the soldiers buried here of various nations of the UN force that fought in the Korean War of 1950 to 1953), the...

Take the exit 3 from Daeyeon MRT station and walk into the main street. About 500 meters. Then turn left and you have arrived. A must see for everyone who is interested in the history of Korea and especially the Korean war. The cemetary has a beautiful layout and the graves of the soldiers are all lined up by nation....

End of the day and almost a perfect way to finish of a busy day of sightseeing. Try and get there for the flag lowering at 4pm, short video gives a good intro of the site etc.
