The Perfect Gyeongju Itinerary, Gyeongju, South Korea (B)

Get out of Seoul and visit one of Korea’s other fun cities! Gyeongju was the capital of Korea’s Shilla Dynasty (57 BC – 935 AD) and is often considered to be a ‘museum without walls’. That’s because of the hundreds of historic sites, artifacts, and attractions all over the city. If you are looking for a fun city to explore while in Korea or on a weekend away from Seoul, Gyeongju will not disappoint!

The temple was built in 528 during the Shilla Kingdom, between the years 514 and 540. In 1955, Bulguksa Temple was designated as a World Cultural Asset by UNESCO due to its beauty and ancient stone relics. The temple complex spans a huge area located in a beautiful park with many temple halls and sites. Should you want to experience life as a Korean Buddhist monk, sign up for Bulguksa’s exciting temple stay program. If you can’t spend the night, the temple also offers daily programs that feature temple etiquette, the 108 prostrations, lotus lantern making, meditating and visiting Seokguram Grotto. ......
