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!

It is a nice lake and especially during the morning. You may come here for a jog if you like, or have a breakfast here looking at the lake and enjoy the scenery. Chairs are available, just get the best spot you like and snap a lot of picture as you wish.

It is so difficult to rate Bomun Lake as we spent just half an hour here on a mid-afternoon walk, upon our arrival in Gyeongju. So this review is about practical tips. All our guidebooks advice that Bomun Lake is where you stay if you would like a bit of luxury. I would agree, because our own experience of a... More
