I went there to pay my respects. Very beautiful but definitely off the beaten path. I liked that it was near the Busan Museum. Beautifully maintained and to honor those who fought and died during the Korean War from all over the world.

It doesn't matter what country you come from, this cemetery will definitely move you in such a profound way. As an expat-Korean/current New Zealand citizen, I would recommend this place to anyone. This war was devastating to not only my country of birth but also to the families of the fallen soldiers. To pay your respects and learn a lot more about a war that wasn't really well known, you should go there.

Since over 36,000 American lives were lost in the Korean War (a UN-sanctioned war), more than the total of all the other foreign countries combined, American tourists should go to see how Koreans pay their respects. I saw one visiting Korean school group with their heads bowed in prayer. Take a look at the immense wall covered with the names of service people and the states they came from. There are only a few American graves (from military who chose to be buried in Korea), while some countries have larger numbers, especially the Turkish military. Visit the memorabilia centers to see how many countries were involved in one way or another. Try not to forget history, so we have to repeat it.

So emotional to see the rows of headstones from eack of the countries involved in the war. Immaculately kept with each country having their own memorials. the respect and gratitude from the korean staff for the sacrifices made was truly humbling
