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.

  • We didn't take the train due to long wait - we were going to take the train but it was too cold to wait outside. If you choose to walk, you get to stop by different spots to enjoy the view. It's worth a visit!

  • The cliffs of Taegongdae puts you face to face with South Korea’s southern coast. In fact, it’s on the southern tip of an island off Busan, the Yeongdo Island. The entire area is a national park and designated as one of 28 monuments in Busan. This southern tip of Yeongdo-gu is named after the 29th King of the Silla Dynasty, King TaeJong who apparently loves archery and practices from this cliff point. Since Taegongdae is a park on a hill perched facing magnificent ocean views, walking around the park would definitely make you sweat, unless it’s winter. If you don’t want to walk the park, there’s a train that goes around the part that lets you get on and off. Save the walking, but you’ll lose out on achieving those steps on your fitness tracker. :) Taejong-Dae lighthouse. Below this lighthouse is a rock that legends say is where gods and goddesses came down from the heavens to relax. I guess even gods and goddesses need a break too, and Taejong-Dae, with its magnificent cliff views of the ocean is an excellent choice. Venture down below the lighthouse and you'll find ahjumas (aunties) selling right of the sea seafood. Fresh octopus, as in still living is served raw on makeshifts by the cliffs. The octopus is cut open in front of you, served while the parts are still moving. Eerie, somewhat disgusting yet fascinating. Eating raw seafood that's still moving is definitely part of the charm of Busan. I just couldn't move past the wriggling parts. Sitting on a rock by the sea. Ocean waves crashing underneath with winds running chills through my bones. All I could think about was how much I needed this good moment to remember.

  • Enjoyable ferry ride. You can choose to take bus as well but ferry ride you will be able to see the beautiful cliff

  • This is the most place I love in Busan 태 종대유원지. Unfortunately there were some area are closed for visiting due to reconstruction.

  • Incredibly beautiful leisure park that the whole family can enjoy. I'd recommend taking a danubi train (3,000 won each) if you bring the elderly or small kids. For tourists staying in Seomyeon area; from Seomyeon Station Exit 1, walk to the bus stop and take the bus #88 to the end of the line.
