  • Gyeongju is Tombs, Temples, Parks, Forests, and smiles! I fell in love with this quiet, a beautiful city with a rich history. It was here during the Golden autumn. Bike-must have! To any point of the city and up to almost any suburb can be reached. Been here 2 weeks mnogova-then, of course, but for a week stay is worth. Everything considered, hang in the Park/forest, go to the local market, climb mountains.

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.
