Yongdusan Park - Review

This park is located in Jung-gu, Busan. It is said to be one of the 3 popular mountains in Busan. Earlier it was known as Songhyunsan, which means a mountain having a view of the beautiful sea through its dense pine forest. Later the name was changed to Youngdusan, where Yongdu means dragon’s head. It is said that the mountain park looks like a dragon head.

The most popular and visible feature of this park is the Busan Tower. It is a symbol of Busan stand 69m above the sea level and has a height of 120m. The tower resembles baldaquin of Dabotap Pagoda (of Bulguksa temple, Gyeongju). At the top of the tower, there is Observatory from where you can get a perfect view of the entire city.

  • I love this park because it is very peaceful, and takes you away from the hustle and bustle of the city below. You can sit around here as you ascend the hill, under the shade of the trees. There's even an exercise corner where you'll find popular with the elderly. There are other traditional pagoda and pavilions you can take photos with.

  • Not much going on here. There is an observation tower and a twosome place if you want to get a snack. But the park itself didn't have much there. There was a small stage that looks like performances take place there. But there were no performances happening. We didn't actually go up the tower because the view from the third floor of the twosome place was enough.

  • All of tourists drop by here, but Nth to see and Nth special. Well if you want to get out of crowed shopping street, It is worthy. I am realistic, so that don't go up to the Tower. BUSAN is surrounded by mountains and buildings which are higher than the tower. hahaha

  • I liked the park a lot: you have a good view to city. There is a nice shrine. Also a statue from Yi Soon Shin.On the way down to pedestrian zone, you meet a friendly buddha and some nice art and porcelaine/ceramic shops. If you go downstairs, you are in the middle of the city with all the brand stores. And Lotte Mall is easily reachable from the park. Upwards, there is an escalator. So, what more to want???!?

  • This is a place where you can see a preview of Korea's rich culture and traditions.
