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.

We bought the train tickets which allow us to hop on and off at different stops. Once you get off the train, it is very hard to get back on. All the seats were taken. The staff was rude. We ended up walking all the way back.

To enjoy full experience of what Taejongdae have to offer, go up the hike to every station and view points. On a bright day, can see Japan! What amazes me the most is the hike down to one of the station, eat sea urchin while waiting for a boat ride back to the entrance by sea!

Make sure to allot at least 2 to 3 hours to visits the place. Check the lighthouse if you have time, you can go down the mountain to reach the lighthouse.
