Gyeongju is located 30 km north of Ulsan. Gyeongju was the capital of the ancient kingdom of Silla (57 BC – 935 AD). Among its historical treasures, Seokguram Grotto, Bulguksa Temple, Gyeongju Historic Areas, and Yangdong Folk Village are designated as World Heritage Sites by UNESCO. The numerous major historical sites have helped Gyeongju become one of the most popular tourist destinations in South Korea.

Travel back in time to Gyeongju, the city with a thousand-year old history. You can stroll around an age-old Buddhist temple and experience the charms of village life. The Gyeongju tour begins at Bulguksa Temple, the UNESCO World Heritage Site renowned for its exceptional architecture and stonemasonry. The complex comprises a series of wooden buildings on raised stone terraces, which represent the land of Buddha. Visitors enter this representation of paradise by crossing stone bridges, and are then greeted by two stone pagodas which are both listed as National Treasures of Korea. Gyochon Traditional Village is full of old hanok houses that carefully retained their period authenticity or have been converted to picturesque cafés. In addition to various performances, like a traditional wedding reenactment, the village offers various experience programs. We recommend trying on the festive traditional attire, called hanbok, which can turn ordinary outings into special occasions. Please explore the Gyeongju Tour Website, here.
