Taejongdae Park, a rather beautiful place that is especially famous for its rock beach! After we visited Huinnyeoul Culture Village this was our next stop – travel time was almost around 10 minutes only.
First of all, we got to ride the Danubi Train, climb the light house and also got to see the amazing views of Busan. Click the read more button below to see my photos and read about my adventure here!

TRIVIA! Below the lighthouse there is a rock called Sinseon Rock which is named after the myth that gods and goddesses went there to relax.
At the bottom, there is a small market where you can buy fresh seafood, get the cooked or eat them raw. There are a few tables that you can also eat at. It is a bit far down so expect a lot of stairs, looked very interesting though!
TRIVIA! Taejongdae is also famous for the ritual of praying for rain, performed when there are droughts. Rain on the 10th day of the fifth lunar month is called the “Taejong Rain.”
I had a great time visit Taejongdae Park! Nice to see a different side of Busan. Have you been here before? If not, does it look like a place you would visit if you were in Busan? Let me know in the comments section below.
