Yongdusan Park Reviews & Ratings
Fresh air, beautiful view, it's in the hill higher from Busan city. I haven't tried to go up the Tower, but the view here is amazing and it's near night market.
Felt completely unsafe my entire time here. Absolutely terrible experience. Visited on NYE for a bell ringing ceremony, and they let in way too many people. Spent over half an hour packed in with literally no space on any side of me, being pushed against a wall from the side, from behind by people still trying to climb up, and from the front by people trying to get down...all while occasionally being knocked on the head by people's elbows and feet hanging off of the railing above me. Most of the people within about 10-20 feet of me (at least) couldn't see any of the celebration at midnight. Then for about 15 minutes, I remained unable to move up or down, while police or security told people to get off the guardrail above. After about 5 minutes, most people were moving down, and I followed the flow of the hundreds/thousands of people. Around 12:25, they started a fireworks display. I tried to make my way back up to see some of it, trying to salvage the ceremony, but my view was blocked by trees for the entire 30 second duration of the show. The worst part is, I would have had a better view of the ceremony, the countdown, and the fireworks display if I had just stayed outside the park and never got into the line to enter in the first place. They let in WAY too many people, and it seemed like it could have been a stampede disaster if anything happened. "I have to be careful not to die here" is not what I want to be thinking as a new year begins, but that's how it went here.
Beautiful place with beautiful view. You can also take a walk down the stairs and end up at one of the shopping districts.
Walk round and around the park uphill in the evening after your meal. Good exercise and then good view of the city.
You can visit Busan Tower In Yongdusan Park. Beautiful view from Busan Tower. Better than N Seoul Tower for me.
