Nice area

It is a nice area to relax and stay after exploring all the attractions Gyoengju has to offer. Nice walking trails and lots of restaurants.

Large lake with composite walkway all the way around (about 10km). Lots of places to picnic. Luxury hotels on other side next to an amusement park.

Every spring, Lake Bomun will be enveloped with countless number of blooming cherry blossoms which is really unimaginable. We have been to Gyeongju twice, and will still go back again in the near future to behold this natural beauty in spring. If you can, rent bicycles to cycle around the lake (about 8 km route) or if you jog, you... More

Beautiful in the early morning mist especially during April with the cherry blossoms in bloom. Lovely walkway around the lake. Worth a visit if you're in the neighbourhood.

There is a lovely lakeside path that runs from one end to the other. In spring it is lined with blossom trees. The views are lovely and there is nice music playing through speakers as you meander along.

Bomun Lake is a very pretty area. There are a few small store at which you can get snacks and some drinks. Most of the lakeside is open and away from businesses. I suggest getting some drinks and having a picnic. The walk around the reservoir isn't very long either, roughly a bit more than 5 km.

This is a small but very beautiful lake, just outside of the city. I think it is especially nice in Autumn time with all the colorful trees. Have a look yourself !

A large artificial lake surrounded by five star large hotels, starbucks and swan boats on the lake. Nothing wrong with that but not my thing!

This place was really good fun, sat and ate good food in one of the many restaurants dotted around, but the MAJOR attraction were the swanboats. Super fun!
