Ever wonder about the thing-on-the-hill above Daesindong? A tower like structure poking above the tree line, with a Korea flag alongside it, can be seen from the neighbourhood, and even from parts of downtown Nampo. It just so happens to be a memorial park perched in one of the best spots in Busan.
Set on the crest of Daecheong Mountain, Jungang Park is south facing, commanding impressive views of Nampodong, and across the harbor to the new bridge to Yeongdo. This vista helps to illustrate how Busan is carved up into sections by the mountains that have gifted the city its name.
