It took us a while to get to Tawjondae from Haeundae but I must say, we were amazed by the view! We took the ferry to go there. I recommend going there early in the afternoon. Bring some snacks with you and a cup of tea/coffee. And also, make sure to bring one plastic bag because you cannot leave your... More

We got there extra early by reaching Nampodong station at 8.30 - used exit 6 and waited at the second nearest bus stop to the exit (take either bus 8, 30 or 88). Our journey took only 25 mins since there wasn't much traffic (taejongdae is the last stop)In winter, the Danubi train starts at 9.20am. Pay 2,000 won and... More

Was thinking to choose between Bomeosa and Taejongdae for a half day trip on my last day in Busan before depart to Jeju. Turn out to be surprisingly stunning than what I expected. Definitely love this place.

This is a location to come for a walk. In fact if you did not take the tram (2000 won/pp), then it is a very long and uphill trek to the lighthouse, which we consider the pinnacle of this attraction, which is otherwise free to the public. Do not stop at the viewing platform (1st stop) because it is under... More

I don't wish to hike up ,and then get a view of the Korean coastline and just come back.Some gardens,flowers,trails etc would add to the attraction but sadly,all I saw was the Memorial to the Med Corps outside the park and the gorgeous view of the bay.

walking down the many steps to the lighthouse towards the shore was simply breathtaking that I nearly missed a step. the rock formation was unique and we've so much fun taking pictures, posing against the backdrop of the ocean with the on-going liners in the distance was spectacular! besides the lighthouse,

Flat, paved walking paths. Free activity, no ticket required. There is a quirky "train" that will save you the walk, but in my opinion the walk as the best part. There are luggage lockers near the start of the trail next to the convenience store where you can store your stuff for 500 won for the day. I walked down... More
