Bulguksa temple is a must-see in Gyeongju. We took a bus from Gyeongju bus station and it was a long ride, but we were discussing our excursions and experiences with fellow passengers in the bus, so the ride didn't feel long at all. The temple...More

A relatively compact temple complex set in the hills. All though most of it was rebuilt or restored it is still a beautiful working temple. We were staying in Haeundae, Busan and did a day trip to the temple and Gyeongju. We were able to...More

The temple is well maintained despite of being hundreds of years old. The surrounding sceneries are awesome. Describing heaven on earth. You should drink the natural spring water which you'll find on your way to that temple. I will always want to go there again..!!

Good, the place was clean, peaceful and not very strict with the tourist. It was hot when we visited the temple but the breeze made it relaxing and comfortable.

The temple is a long bus ride from the Singyeongjyu train station. It is probably closer to the Gyeonjyu train station but we did not have a choice. It is a huge complex & there is a lot of climbing up & down of stairs....More

In 1955 this was dedicated a UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE Site, so you know that it is worth spending time here, which we did. Built in the 8th century, partially destroyed in the16th century by invading Japanese during a battle, it was reconstructed faithfully in 1970....More

The bus has fixed timing which you can take a picture at one of the bus stop, so just work with the bus schedule for your planning. Both Bus 10 and 11 goes to Bulguksa. Their routes are like a circle, with the same starting... More
