Gyeongju is located in the south-east part of Korea peninsula. This probably the recommended place to go when you visit to south-east part of Korea. This place is rich of Korea cultural and artifacts from very ancient time, such as neolitic age, bronze age, and beginning of iron age, as this place is old Silla capital kingdom. Silla is a part of trilogy kingdoms story of Korea history. To find the complete information, you can visit the Gyeongju National museum. There are also some small original-like 'stupa's and big bell from that periode.

How about tasting the original tea of Gyeongju? Yap, this region also has a special traditional tea ceremony. 15 minutes just for drinking a cup of tea! for me, it will be less than 1 minute and one more minute for another 2-3 cups more. ke ke ..
Also still in this region, there is Buddha temple, Bulguksa means land of happiness. It is a temple complex with some pagoda and old buiding, also small river flows there. Silent and nice.
