Beautiful place and beautiful music

I enjoyed Gyeongju international music festival at Bomun lake outdoor theater during 4th to 7th August. The pathway is good for walking around the lake.

I believe Bomun Lake is natural, but the areas surrounding the lake are filled with your usual resort attractions, theme park, shopping, etc. This is probably a destination resort area for your Korean family during the summer. I went there in early November and the place is quite empty at that time. I could imagine the place is absolutely crowded... More

We didn't stay here. But glad of that. This must be a lovely place to visit when the weather is good and you need a respite from urban life. But our view of the area, from bus #10 heading to Bulguksa Temple, convinced us that this was really not the right place for us to stay and we're glad we... More

This is a resort area with a capital R. There are all sorts of entertainment activities and countless eateries in a really beautiful location. Great for all ages and groups with many hotels at a wide range of price points. The duck boat rentals and little electric cars for the kiddies are corny but very fun.

but if you're staying in the neighborhood, and the weather is nice, treat yourself to a stroll around the lake.

Visited in the spring, there were a lot of people picnicking and kids, also cute dogs running around, nothing too noisy though. Atmosphere is nice, my friend and I had earlier bought a big box of strawberries and sat on one of the many benches around, enjoying the great weather there that day. There is a bridge connecting to the... More

This lake is very big. It will take more than one hour to walh around it. There are lots of hotels, resaurants, or cafes. Yon can paddle boats or walk or jog around the lake. There iare an amusement park, Millenium Park, or golf courses near the lake.

If you want to have a fake Traditional Korean experience and pay inflated prices, then Bomun is for you. The surrounding park is lovely year-round, but all the restaurants and fake hanok-style buildings drape the ugly commercialism of Korea onto things that could otherwise be enjoyable.

The trail around the lake is the best thing in this area. The second thing is probably the outdoor theater which unfortunately we didn't get to enjoy. Information on the performances was not readily available. Well, the hotel concierge was not aware of it even though we saw a poster in Korean showing the schedule of shows. Last and the... More

Bomun Lake scenic places can provide tourists and family a very good attraction and scenic view there. We enjoyed the nice cherry blossom and scenic views in the festival, and we took a lot of nice pictures. You must visit the surrounding and coastal area around the Bomun Lake, including the leisure and tourist complex.
