Gyeongju - Cherry Blossoms & Sightseeing

Let's go to the historic city of Gyeongju, where we can soak up all of the historic sites during the beautiful cherry blossom season! During this overnight trip, we will be able to see the major sites of the city including Cheomseongdae, the royal tombs, Anapji Pond, and Bulguksa Temple (a UNESCO World Heritage site). We'll also be able to see plenty of cherry trees blooming and huge fields of spring flowers. Gyeongju is one of the best places to visit in the spring, so it should be a memorable trip!

    For anyone living in the southern area of Seoul or nearby suburbs, we can stop at Jukjeon rest area to pick you up if that's more convenient. Just let me know ahead of time.^^

    Someone sent money for the trip yesterday but there was no name on the deposit. If you've sent money for the trip but I've not sent an email confirming it, let me know!^^

    April 1, 2013

    • Heather G.

      Yeah I noticed that. Still, it's too early to know what the weather will be like. In the worst case, at least we have our own bus!
