Hello, everyone! We are Creatrip, a group of Korean travel experts.
Which city do you think is keeping Korean history the best? I will say it is Gyeongju! Gyeongju was once the capital city of ancient Silla for a thousand years, and it still retains the cultural assets very well. Also, there are many UNESCO World Heritage sites such as Bulguksa Temple and Seokguram in Gyeongju!
Today, I would like to introduce you to a Gyeongju day trip course that allows you to experience key attractions of Gyeongju! Let's take a look at Gyeongju Yangdong Folk Village, Seokguram, Bulguksa, and Donggung Palace and Wolgi Pond!
- Yangdong Folk Village : UNESCO World Cultural Heritage - The largest traditional Hanok Village in Korea.
- Seokguram : UNESCO World Cultural Heritage - Designated as National Treasure No. 24 in 1962 and was designated as a World Cultural Heritage in 1995.
- Bulguksa : UNESCO World Cultural Heritage - Bulguksa Temple and the Grottoes in Tofu Mountain are the two most famous Buddhist temples built by Kim Dae-sung by Silla Period. They were destroyed during the Japanese invasion but rebuilt in the 1970s. A thousand years old stories are still in this cultural heritage.
- Donggung Palace and Wolji Pond: The pond in the Imperial Palace of the Silla period has a beauty that even the emperor enjoyed it at the time. The floor of the palace is next to the geese duck pool. In 1980, the pottery was found in the palace with an old face written word "Moon Pond." This place is also known as "East Palace and Moon Pond".
