As a history buff, I decided to tour Gyeongju rather than Busan. I took the bus from the nopu-dong station. The bus ran smoothly and did not take long to reach Gyeongju, the ancient capital of the Silla kingdom, which unified Korea in the 7th century. The taxi drivers were on strike. I walked the area, which is pretty big. Not too many tourists were there. The attractions were not particularly impressive, but it was nice to walk around and to know more about Korean history. I toured the tomb group, passed the wooded area, where the founder of Kim dynasty was born, saw the ruin of one palace, and ended up in the museum. After that I took the bus back to the bus station. Since it was too early, I went to visit General Kim’s tomb.
