About Taejongdae Park, Busan

Located on the southernmost tip of Yeongdo-gu, Taejongdae park is a natural park and one of the popular tourist attractions of Busan. Its white lighthouse overlooking the green sea and the observation deck makes the entire park look exotic. You can just walk down the lighthouse, have your own time and can enjoy having fresh raw fish on the rocky shore. However, the distance between the entrance gate and the lighthouse is quite long. So, if walking is not your genre, you can take a tour course or buy tickets of Danubi trains. Whether you come with your family or with your spouse, you are definitely going to fall in love with the scenic beauty of this place.

On clear sky day, you can even spot Tsushima or Daema, Island of Japan from the rocky cliff. At the edge of the rocks, food tents are there where you can take a quick bite and can again walk around the park. From the dock, mini cruise ship trip are also there to move around the cliffs.

Taejongdae Park, Busan Reviews

  • The best park to visit in Busan. The experience is fantastic. Getting there is a bit of a challenging. Using the cab is easy and the fare is reasonable if there are three or four in the group and it will also save you some time. The easiest way is to buy the ticket for the tram which will bring you to the few interesting stops in the park. the two most popular stops are Observation point and Lighthouse. I recommend going to Lighthouse first and when you are done, walk backward to the stop before, which is the Observation point. This way, you will have a better chance of getting onto the tram again as most visitors will get off at the Observation point.

  • One of the nicest places in Busan. It has so many beautiful landscapes and lighthouses! I would recommend taking comfortable shoes and having time for this park because it's woth it. Inside the park there is a little train so you don't have to worry about walking long distances. However, in order to get to the lighthouses and attractions you will have to take many stairs. The view is more beautiful in a good weather! You won't see anything of it's too cloudy!

  • Nice view but there r so many stairs. U can enjoy the seafood...enter the lighthouse...or just sitting around the rock beach enjoy the sea breeze. So relaxing

  • Great views, historical insights, and English translations provided. Beautiful walk but if you're feeling tired there is also a "train" you take you around the park.

  • It is a beautiful forest park, recommended to take mini shuttle to take you ard. There is a nice seafood noodle shop outside the park.
