Busan Destinations: Taejeongdae

by Busan Haps Staff

Located on the island of Yeongdo-gu, Taejongdae is a scenic park with great views from cliffs facing the sea. There is an evergreen forest to wander around in and several facilities for tourists such as an observatory, an amusement park with a full on Ferris wheel, a light house and a cruise ship terminal and, as you can see in the photo below, some funky modern Korean sculpture. The name of the area comes from King Taejong Muyeol (604-661), who liked to practice archery there following the unification of the Three Kingdoms of Korea.
 
At the entrance, is a monument to the five neutral nations that contributed medical support during the Korean War.
