Mixed of historical and modernisation

the park is on top and the shopping street is below. After you see the historical side of Busan, you can see modern Busan right after travelling down the escalator

I took the multi leveled escalator from Nampodong up into Yongdusan Park. Note, the escalator only goes up into the park. If you want to go back the same way, you will need to walk down the stairs, so beware of the physical requirements of doing this! I didn't spend too much time at the park. As I recall, there...

I walked from BIFF to Yongdusan Park and I took the looooong elevator to arrive the place. There are a few statues that you can find here. If you have some times while wandering around Jagalchi-BIFF, you will surely appreciate the view that it gives. However, if you are tight on schedule or have better place to go, this is... More

Take the escalator up to view Busan. Didn't go up the observatory but it should give a clear view of Busan. There is a souvenir shop too.

Take the escalator up from the shopping street. Park gives a good view of Busan. If you want you can go up Busan Tower for a better view (5000KRW per adult).

I was expecting to spend about 1-2 hrs here but was done in half an hr (including time spent shopping at the souvenir shop). There's nothing much to see to be honest - just a couple of statues, a large bell and a clock tower. We didn't go up the Busan tower as we've gone to a similar tower in... More

A long escalator takes you up the mountain (large hill) to the park Once there you will see a flower clock, shrines, love locks fixed to the surrounding fences, love seats and a statue of a general. We were there on dusk and saw the lights of the city gradually come on. A 120m tower gives an excellent view of... More

The best time to see Yongdusan Park is perhaps in springtime, ie late March/ early April when cherry blossoms flourish. It has a tower (with an entrance fee) where one could have good views of Busan city. The park is not very big but is conveniently located in the city area, near Nampo-dong. In the nearby streets, one could find... More

We didn't find anything special in there, it's just like all the observatory-tower-parks in other cities. It's a nice place to relax when it gets dark and see the view over busan
