Nothing seems to be open on a rainy day here, but I did got to see the beautiful hydrangeas! The summer humidity, rain and mist gave this place a mysterious look! Be prepare to sweat and have your clothings soak in this season if you do make it here... The Danubi train don't run on rainy days!

Visited here during my second visit to Busan. The coastal view is very impressive and will not disappoint you. After checking this one out, the sand beaches in the city will be boring to you. need to climb a lot of stairs up and down though. not for people with weak knees! If you take the park bus (recommended), make... More

There is a tram that cost KRwon 2000 per person to bring you round the park. The tram will stop at 5 key places. 1st stop is the Observatory Deck. Nothing much to see as the place is closed for renovation. 2nd stop is the Light house. Also takes less than 1 min to walk from the Observatory Deck to... More

Great for dating, you can sit the tram around, but if you have the stamina, better to walk for quieter more private company. The views at the cliff and light house are lovely to walk and get photos taken. Overall a pleasant experience. Great for nature lovers and those who need a breather from urban life. Not recommended on bad... More

Lots of things to see -- temples, the ocean, the ships ending the harbor, and a small festival. We walked. It might be best to buy a ticket on the tram so that you can take a break.

A nice park that deserved good rating. Nice scenery view. The cliff and light house are must to visit. You can walk down to the cliff and enjoy the sea breeze but it slippery. Be careful. You can either take a stroll walk around the park which I did. It took me about 4 hours to finish the park (including... More

Taejongdae is a natural park with a rather dense vegetation. It has a single primary paved road with side-walk that takes you in a circuit like path of the whole park. The main entrance of Taejongdae park is accessible by bus or taxi. The entrance is free. Once you walk past the main entrance, it takes you to a fork.... More

There was a direct bus from my Guest House and Taejongdae is the last stop. There is tram but I chose to walk all the way. Nice place but I would suggest you to check the weather before going there because it is more beautiful with clear sky.

The view at the observatory is superb. Wind was quite strong. Highly recommended to visit if you are in Busan. Tips: 1) To avoid looooooong queue for the train, be sure to reach early as soon as it opens. 2) Alternatively you may walk all the way but be prepared as the road is going upwards and could be a...
