I will be arriving heading to Gyeongju from Seoul. I plan to do take a KTX to Singyeongju and then bus 50, 70 or 700 to Gyeongju city. I will proceed to drop my luggage at guesthouse/hotel.
First day I like to cover:
1. Bulguksa Temple
Go to the Gyeongju Express Bus Terminal and take Bus No. 10 or 11. The ride takes about 40 minutes.
(Question: How do I know when/where to alight?)
2. Seokguram Grotto [UNESCO World Heritage]
Hike up Mt Tohamsan from Bulguksa Temple or take Bus 12.
(Question: Is the hiking trail just behind the Bulguksa Temple?)
3. Namsan Mountain
- Get on the bus (# 11) to Tongiljeon Memorial (Eastern Side) or # 500 to Samneung Tombs (Western side)
(Question: Is it better to hike from Samneug? And what are the timing like for the last bus back to Gyeongju city?)
Rent a bicycle for the day and do a cycle tour to attraction in the city center
(Question: What are the sites that are must visit?)
On the second night, I will like to take a Intercity bus to Busan. Anyone knows where I might be able to find out information online about the bus timings?
Lastly, any must try food or night highlights in Gyeongju?
Thanks! :)Edited: 11:01 pm, January 05, 2013
