Also known as Seorabeol, this quaint city is located on the southeastern coastline of South Korea in the North Gyeongsang Province. Gyeongju is bordered by Pohang, Ulsan, Yeongcheon, Cheongdo, and the East Sea. Sections of the Taebaek Mountain Range are dotted throughout the land.
Between the 7th and 9th centuries, Gyeongju was the capital of Silla, which was the kingdom of the Korean Peninsula. In fact, the city is known as the museum without walls because of all the historical and cultural treasures. From Buddhist statues to palace ruins, rock carvings to temples, there is certainly no shortage of culture here.
There is more to do than just learn about history, though. Visit the Gyeongju National Park with almost 34,000 acres of green space, trails, and forests. Bomun Lake is also a fantastic place to get in touch with your natural side with their outdoor theater, lakeside picnic areas, and boat rides.
