  • What good in the name of Gyeongju National Park. Is easy-to-understand say Namsan Buddhas. We went in the number 11 bus to the reunification Palace and sought 7 Buddha Temple, sinsen-an from there. There about an hour and a half long. Through Namsan mountain pumice is nice returned intact, but was still walking, so, to 3 Ling GOL. All in about 5 hours. Stone Buddhas is excellent. Climbing the sense of accomplishment and statues to see the sense of accomplishment and joy of two. Easier to understand as there are various routes, map to get information, guide book or site, such as by referring to that information is organized, not. Can Korea speak hopefully together better and is safer. But climbers at all kind food, woke up please. One of them is the cake. If you eat in the mountains was the best. I think if someone would help me. 3 Ling GOL going down the information the man from nowhere is also kind and bus ride up was concerned. Here from the 500 can return to the city by bus for the second generation. However have to do fewer number and get directions to make mistakes.
