Busan City Guide

Busan Tower


about busan tower

Located in Yongdusan Park, Busan tower sits at an altitude of 69 meters and stands 120 meters high! 

Like Namsan Tower, located in Korea's capital, Busan Tower boasts epic views of the surrounding mountainous landscape and skyscrapers... but unlike Namsan, the views from aren't just of a sprawling city.

At Busan tower you'll catch a glimpse of the city, mountains, and Korea's southern coast. (This may not seem like a big deal, but I grew up in North Carolina and went to school in Wilmington on the Atlantic... it was my first time seeing the Pacific Ocean).

I went to Busan Tower for sunset on my first trip to the city, and, though it was a bit crowded, I was definitely not disappointed.
