Busan Tower – 120 meters high located at 69 meters above sea level, in the middle of Yongdusan Park. A beautiful tower – similar to that of the Seoul Tower. This was our first stop in Busan! Click the link below to read more of what we got up to here!
Just a little back story of how we got to Busan from Seoul.
So our train to Busan was scheduled for 12:30 pm (KTX train) which cost 59,800 KRW per person (equivalent to PHP 2,900 or USD 54). The ride was 2 hours and 30 minutes. We checked in to our hotel and had a little rest and when out for a little night walk at 6pm.
How to get here?
The closest station is, Nampo Station (Busan Subway Line 1). When you get there – take Exit 7, turn left onto Gwangbok-ro Street. Walk around 160 m to arrive at Yongdusan Park (escalator on the right).
We just walked here from our Hotel – it was probably around 20-30 minutes but it was nice to see the neighborhood.
Last hurrah! Few more uphill steps to Yongdusan Park where Busan Tower is located.
There are a few restaurants here as well, the temple looking building is a cafe called, A Twosome Place. There is also a small convenient store on the first floor, where we bought a few Korean snacks.
