One Day Trip to Gyeong Ju - Part I

22 July 2007 @ Bulguksa [불국사], Gyeong Ju

It was a one day trip for the 5 of us [MMU trainees] and ShuYun jie jie to the famous city of Gyeong Ju. Gyeong Ju is a famous historical city in Korea, and it's also one of the well-known tourist attraction. It's said that this city is the capital of Silla dynasty more than a millennium ago. It's also known as "museum without walls" [but with a lot of entrance fees to pay].

We took subway and express bus to Gyeong Ju and took a public bus to our first destination, Bulguksa Temple. This temple has a lot of beautiful architecture of the golden age of Buddhist art in the Silla Kingdom. It's one of the must-go places if you come to South Korea.

We were quite in a hurry as we were off our schedule and we have to catch a 1-hour interval bus to our next stop: Seokguram! Don't forget to check back frequently for my next post. =P Billy, out.
