Climb the 129 m (423 ft) high tower to observe Busan at Yongdusan Park, a small hilltop park adjacent to a busy shopping area. Spanning 69,000 sq m (742,709 sq ft) with 70 different species of trees, the park also houses two museums: one with world folk instruments, and the other with 80 boat models ranging from traditional yellow-hemp sailboats to modern yachts. Look for the 12 m (37 ft) high statue of Yi Sun-sin, a 16th-century naval commander who repelled a Japanese invasion. Take a break from busy city life and calmly observe it from the park's viewing area (though you'll need to manage some steep stairs to get there). For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Busan holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Yongdusan Park and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

光復路からエスカレーターがあったので移動が楽だった。思ったよりもエスカレーターの入り口が目立たなくて探しそうになった。カフェやお土産物のお店もあったが行った時はそろそろ閉店の時間だった。帰りは階段で長かった。 more »It was easy to move because there was an escalator from the light return road. The entrance of the escalator was not noticeable than I thought, and it seemed to look for. There were cafes and souvenir shops, but when we went there, it was about time to close. The return was long on the stairs.
Nothing much to do except to enjoy the scenery. There's a cafe and restaurants there. Also a convenient shop. Duty free never to open. And busking performance
Quite a very nice and beautiful place in the midst of a city. However, too many tourists and clamoring to go up via the escalator. Great views at the top...
