Museum Without Walls

One of the most popular tourist destinations in the Republic of Korea, Gyeongju combines a rich cultural heritage with mountain and coastal scenery. Explore a World Heritage-listed historic area packed with rock carvings, tumuli, temples, and pagodas, then visit a history museum and a folk village to shop for authentic handicrafts. Gyeongju vacations can also take advantage of the pine-forested long beach with a seawater spa. Scenic hills just five minutes away from downtown offer pleasant hiking, with numerous Buddhist stone carvings and shrines en route. The city also has a large water park and lots of public and private sport facilities for entertainment and recreation in all seasons. Shilla craftwork and a variety of traditional dishes add to the color of this well-visited spot. Gyeongju is in Gyeongsangbuk-do.
