We bought the train tickets which allow us to hop on and off at different stops. Once you get off the train, it is very hard to get back on. All the seats were taken. The staff was rude. We ended up walking all the way back.

To enjoy full experience of what Taejongdae have to offer, go up the hike to every station and view points. On a bright day, can see Japan! What amazes me the most is the hike down to one of the station, eat sea urchin while waiting for a boat ride back to the entrance by sea!

Make sure to allot at least 2 to 3 hours to visits the place. Check the lighthouse if you have time, you can go down the mountain to reach the lighthouse.

The walks there are not really worth it. The views are not spectacular and it is kind of boring to walk around!

I didn't know the park was so big, and I didn't wear comfortable shoes that day. So my feet hurt so much after walking around, but it was worth it. The air was fresh and clean, it was nice to walk without sweating (I would be soaking wet if I walked like that for 5 mins in Singapore). It is... More

Taejongdae offers a circular walk around a forested area on the coast that is less strenuous than Igidae Park. There is an observatory that looks out to the sea, a lighthouse you can climb, and a couple of Buddhist temples. If you don't want to walk, there is a land train that circles the park for only ₩2,000.

I walked from the start till the end and i guess it took around 4-5 hours as I stopped at every spot and explored a bit. I recommend you to walk if you have time as the walk itself is not difficult and it would be a very good activity for relaxation, remember to bring some food though. You get... More

We took a public bus to the park and then walked all the way to and back the park. Took us over 3 hours. Quite tiring but nice cool winter weather (about 7 degrees C). Those who find the walk tough can take a tram ride though we find it not worthwhile to pay for the 2,000 KRW ride. Just... More

Luckily my friends and i opt for the tram (KRW 2000), because its a long walk to get to the lighthouse. we went in the morning, weather is nice and windy. Please wear a proper shoes there. Spend almost 3 hours enjoying the the beautiful scenery and having fun taking pictures.
