The UN Memorial Cemetery was a very moving experience - and offered insight not only on conflicts in Korea but across the world. It is a great place for reflection.

Whenever visit Busan I strongly recommend you to attend UN Cemetery. My opinion it is the duty of everybody who prizes freedom and democracy. This place is reminder that nothing is given forever, there are such moments that it is necessary to fight for values and some pay for these values ultimate price. Cemetery itself is beautiful. All greenery is... More

The cemetary is beautifully well kept. Lots of walking paths and nice landscape with some lovely tributes to the fallen soldiers. Very somber and educational at the same time.

This is a great spot to relax and observe the memorial. The entire complex is clean and there is free parking just outside the gate. If you have trouble finding it, it is right next to the Busan culture arboretum and the Busan museum. We didn't watch the film (we have a toddler that isn't quiet) but they did offer... More

My friends and I decided to walk through the UN Cemetery and I was very glad that we did. This is a fairly new memorial for the Korean conflict and you will see the cemetery segregated into the different countries.

From the moment you walk in with signs asking for your silence out of respect it was always going to be an emotionally moving experience. To see the 45 graves of the New Zealand soldiers that never made it home & the memorial statues made the experience very humbling. Would highly recommend catching the train out to this one.

A visit to this unique cemetery gives a further insight to the losses of war. The memorabilia halls gives an opportunity to become personal with the sacrifices made by the soldiers.

An appropriate place for reflection. Helpful guides. Limited information on why the Korean War happened. It would be good if this was upgraded so people can reflect and learn from mistakes which were made.
