Went there after 2pm. Although the place (most of it, tge observatory are and the area of the lighthouse) are under reconstruction, quite many ppl were there. I guess on a weekend and when it's open it will be packed, our visit was not that bad. Nice view of the sea, quite athmosphere. 2000 wonn/person for the "train" ticket was... More

Went there around dawn, joined the tour train. However, there is no English translation so we don't know it is almost the last train. Just follow the crowd and get off the train to take photos. Cannot find the spot because there is no English direction or signage. Jump back to the train and just follow the crowd again. When... More

This was a great stop if you want more nature in your trip. There was a wait for us to ride the train but it is well worth it. The ENTIRE trip up is uphill. Then when you want to check out the attractions you will also need to do stairs. The observatory stop is nice but I recommend going... More

Nothing much to do there other than visiting a deserted temple hidden inside, walk around the greens, taking mini train and take pictures nearby the lighthouse. Suitable for leisure walk only.

Good place for taking photos. We took the train around the park (highly recommend) and took photos at the viewpoint, lighthouse, cliffs, and temple

A great location if you are planning for your outdoor activity in Busan. Nice scenery. You can see a limitless ocean view and some traditional Korean temples in this area. If you take the Danubi train (~2000 won per head), you can hop on and hop off to 5 major attractions in Taejongdae Park. Should definitely stop by the observatory... More

A lot of slippery steps so make sure you have grippy sneakers. Really nice and well organised hike (not really a hike, just a walk around a really big park) but well worth a visit.
