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.

  • This is a very nice and calm small park/resort with a easy trail. The course or trail is in a circular shape and will take roughly 2 hours to go up and back down. It consists of a couple of temples and a couple of scenic sea facing attractions with photo opportunities. It is completely free for public entrance. There is a shop for refreshments and snacks prior to starting the trail and there are shops and restaurants in each attraction spots (except temples). I had the privilege of going in Spring, although it was quite chilly, I got to see lots of beautiful Purple Blossoms (famous Korean Spring tree) along the way, as they are alongside the trail. This made the walk very romantic with my significant other. Oh and the telescopes are free too. Going up might be quite difficult as it is uphill but going down is a breeze as it is downhill. It is uphill till you reach the middle of the trail and downhill from the middle back to the beginning. Until you reach a attraction or temple, there is no place for rest, which is fine as it is a short trail but under extreme cold or heat, it would become quite difficult. Just dress accordingly to that day's forecast. For me personally, it has been awhile (20+ years) since I visited my hometown Busan, so it was very pleasing to see what beauty my hometown has. I went when the weather was quite chilly but definitely would like to visit again when the weather is bit warmer in Summer. Getting here is very easy where ever you are in Busan, due to the great public transportation system Korea has. I think it is safe to say that this will be in everyone's visit list when you're in Busan.

  • A really nice place to have a beautiful view of the sea from above. The lighthouse stop is the best spot. If you don't want to hike, you would be able to ride the Danubi train (cost 3000₩). Maybe quite unsuitable with people who have knee problem. Lots of stairs involved.

  • 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.

  • i really like it there. its a must-go but make sure you go on a day with perfect weather. great place!

  • 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!
