I’ll be back after the drama … Gyeongju!
Gyeongju city located on the southeast coast of South Korea used to be the capital of the Shilla dynasty. Many of its archaeological sites has been designated as World Heritage sites by UNESCO.
I had visited Gyeongju in 2010 when Sang Hyun was performing at the Hallyu Dream Concert held there. Unfortunately I did not get to explore the place fully as we had to rush back to Seoul for his birthday event after that. But we had fun riding around the downtown area on rented bicycles and managed to visit a few sites ….. Cheomseongdae Observatory and Anapji Pond. I remember passing by a park which had some royal tombs.
I would certainly like to revisit Gyeongju some day and spend more time exploring the many historical treasure sites. It should be much faster to get there now since there is the KTX (around 2 hours from Seoul – SinGyeonju Station). During my trip back then, it took us 4 hours on the intra-city bus from Seoul.
