But… What is an UNESCO Heritage Site?

UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) heritage sites are places recognized by the United Nations as having exceptional value to humanity, either for their cultural significance or natural beauty. These sites are protected to ensure their preservation for future generations to appreciate and Korea happens to have lots of them!

 

 

1. Bulguksa Temple

Bulguksa Temple is the representative relic of Gyeongju and was designated as a World Cultural Asset by UNESCO in 1995. The beauty of the temple itself and the artistic touch of the stone relics are known throughout the world.

 

 

 

 

2. Yangdong Village

UNESCO World Heritage – Korea’s largest traditional village, showcasing the traditional culture of the Joseon Dynasty and the beautiful natural surroundings.

3. Daereungwon & Hwangridan Street

Daereungwon, also known as the Park of Royal Tombs, is a complex containing 23 tombs that were built during the Silla Dynesty. There are a number of tombs with significant historical value, but Chenmachong (Tomb of the Heavenly Horse), where the inside of the tomb is open to public, is one of the most symbolic sites. Next to Daereungwon, there is the famous Hwangridan Street, which introduces the modern face of Gyeongju with various street food and trendy cafes.

4. Woljeong Bridge

Woljeong Bridge boasts a long history that can be traced back several centuries. Constructed with solid stone arches, it serves as a testament to ancient engineering techniques. This historic bridge spans the Woljeong River and has been a vital link in Gyeongju’s transportation network for generations, serving as a tangible reminder of the city’s past.

 

5. Donggung & Wolji

An artificial pond in Gyeongju National Park that was first constructed in year 674. The Korean government temporarily drained the pond in 1972, revealing thousands of Silla artifacts that had fallen into the lake or were thrown in. This place is filled with lots of historical memories.

 

 

6. Gyeongju Gyochon Traditional Village

This village is centred around the Gyeongju Choi Clan, a family renowned for preserving their wealth over 12 generations and producing many influential figures. Visitors can explore the lifestyle and spending habits that allowed the family to achieve this. The village also houses the site of Yoseokgung, the residence of Silla Princess Yoseok.

GyeongJu UNESCO World Heritage 1Day Tour – From Busan (Everyday)

Add a review
  1. GE*** L***     

    Bruce was a fantastic tour guide.

  2. Pa*** P***   Singapore 

    Tour was comprehensive covering attractions as stated in itinerary. Drive from Busan takes 1.5h, but takes 40jin to pick up other passengers from Haeunda station. Esther our guide speaks good English and very helpful, no rush at each site. But the tour was dampened by consistent rain, cold and wet the whole day.

  3. Alejandra Fernández

    Al*** F***   Spain 

    Essential tour when visiting Korea. Our guide Lucy was in charge of explaining the history of the places we visited perfectly. In addition, we must highlight the kindness in the treatment and the prior information about the route.

  4. Ma*** C***   Philippines 

    This tour was really good. Our guides, Lucy and Happy, were extra helpful and informative. We were picked up at the meeting place on time and the drive was smooth. It was a really convenient way to get to Gyeongju and see the UNESCO World Heritage sites and National Treasures in the area. After receiving background information on the destinations, the guides gave us free time to explore the areas at our own pace and just set a designated meeting time to head to the next location. Each location had excellent views, great food, and was jam-packed with historical value. We were also able to pre-order our lunch through our guides whilst still on the bus which was a huge time-saver. I would really recommend taking this tour to Gyeongju if you have an extra day to spend in Busan.

  5. So*** A***     

    I loved the tour. The company complied with everything that was scheduled. They arrived on time, we visited all the places, the guides were excellent. We had lunch in a restaurant with a very good price. The food was homemade and adapted to our taste (for example, they made my dish without spicy). I really recommend the tour, Gyeongju is worth knowing if you go to Busan and the best way to do it is with this tour.

  6. De*** C***     

    It’s a long day trip, but pretty worthwhile.

  7. Chanh-Tri TRINH

    Ch*** T***     

    The guide gaves us lot of information on history of sites. We could visit all main spots of Gyeongju even the trafic jam.
