When in Busan- Visit the Busan Tower(부산타워) at Yongdusan Park

Busan Tower at Night Time

Your journey to Busan will never be complete without paying visit to the Busan Tower. You have no other valid reasons why you can’t visit it because Busan Tower is just right at the heart of the city. It’s a place you would want to go to get a top view of the city. The tower is one of the most remarkable landmarks of the city because of its popularity. It stands 69 m above the sea level and it is a whooping 120 meters tall.

I had the chance to visit the Yongdusan Park when I visited Busan a year ago. I guess it was a great timing because it started to get dark when I went there. At first I thought I couldn’t appreciate it at night time but apparently, the night view was so stunning. The city lights offer an awesome view from up there.

Surrounding the tower are different objects that symbolize history and culture of Busan. There’s the statue of Great Admiral Yi Sun-shin, you can also see the Bell of the Citizens, and the flower clock.

As far as what I’ve observed, the park serves as the hangout place for families and couples at night time. I find the place romantic and at the same time surreal because it’s a park with an escalator. If Namsan Tower has a cable car, Busan Tower has an escalator so you can conveniently climb up the Yongdusan Park. Awesome!!!! Right?
