#2 of 20 in Parks in Gyeongsangbuk-do
Rent a swan or duck paddleboat and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere at Bomun Lake. The lake lies at the foot of a mountain, with the ruins of an old fortress and several hills rising around it. Take a turn around the lake on a bicycle, or hit the walking and jogging tracks. For a bit more excitement, rent a motorized scooter and listen to the music playing from the speakers along the pathway. Many hotels, restaurants, and cafes overlook the lake, and several recreational and sport facilities operate on site.

Where to stay in Gyeongju

With 6 million tourists per year, Gyeongju offers a wide range of accommodations. The area around the Bomun Lake resort has several luxury hotels catering to the needs of Korean tour groups. More moderately priced hotels lie in the downtown area, notably in Nodong-Dong and Noseo-Dong quarters. Near the train station, you can find inexpensive guesthouses (yeoinsuk), motels, and hostels. Family-oriented mid-range hotels tend to cluster just east from the lake, but the tourist-friendly city has accommodations well distributed throughout.
