A must-see in Busan

It is quite easy to go. Take the metro to Nampo station and exit to Youngdo Bridge. Walk up the bridge a bit and there are buses going to Taejongdae (No. 8, 30, 66, 88, 186) and... read more

It is quite easy to go. Take the metro to Nampo station and exit to Youngdo Bridge. Walk up the bridge a bit and there are buses going to Taejongdae (No. 8, 30, 66, 88, 186) and it takes about 30 min. The views are excellent and there is a shuttle train (Danubi) for convenience. There is a walk down... More

Beautiful but be prepared to exercise going up and down stairs when you go see the lighthouse. It is a must see during the day or for a sunset

Not accessible for wheelchair users. Went one round on the tram and waited while my family went to the observatory deck. They did enjoy themselves though.

Went there late afternoon and took the tram to the designated stops. The observatory was pretty much a look out point with a cafe on the top level. Did not stay long there. Walked over to the next destination which is the lighthouse and path to the lower rocky and rugged coastline. Saw the nice pointed sculpture along the way... More

I confess we had some trouble understanding the bus audio insisde Taejongdae which caused a bit of a discomfort but we managed our way there and enjoyed the great view... some people were definetly going to forbidden places and doing dangerous stuff so watch out stay safe cause the wind is really strong and can drag you around.

I came here on a rainy day, so the train to the lighthouse did not work. Thus, I had to walk up hills for around more than 30 mins to the lighthouse. However, it was paid off once the scenery was gorgeous.

Found Taejongdae clam tents to be better than Jagalchi market. Advantages - Minimal tourist in the area, thus they spoke very little English. Thus you pay what local pays. - Seafood BBQ in front of the beach, very relaxing and peaceful. Feeling more at home. - Difference flavour and the way you cook. - Seafood includes clams, mussels, prawns, very... More
