Located in Yongdusan Park, the 118m tall Busan Tower is the area’s one true tourist trap, but well worth a look due to its central location to other great spots like Jagalchi Fish Market and Nampodong’s excellent shopping. And if you don’t have the energy to make the short hillside hike to the tower base, there is even an escalator to take you up. There are some good views of Busan Port even without going up the tower, and you can buy some corn to feed the local population of pigeons.
There is the statue of Admiral Lee Soon-shin, legendary naval commander and strategist in Joseon Dynasty period (1392-1910) as well as a "4/19 Revolution" monument, the student's anti-government revolt.
