This park was easily one of the highlights on my trip to Gyeongju as it provided a beautiful view/stroll that was made even more amazing by the cherry blossoms 벚꽃. The entrance to the park and tombs is just opposite Cheomseongdae Observatory (which is another really famous site worth checking out while you’re in Gyeongju).
There are quite a few sites which are really close to each other within this vicinity so make sure you plan which sites you want to visit and find the best possible route to visit them all. I’ll eventually get around to doing this so you readers don’t have to haha but that will take me a while so sit tight 🙂 As historical as these sites are, you’ll know you’re in the right spot when you see the starbucks a few shops down.
Below are a few photos I took while I was there which will hopefully give you an insight and make you want to add it to your list of places to see while in Gyeongju. Enjoy 🙂
Tumuli Park and Daereungwon Tomb Complex 대릉원 천마총 is a great place to take in Gyeongju’s past as well as being very conveniently located in the main area of Gyeongju (near other major sights) which makes it a popular tourist place. I would definitely recommend visiting as the park and the royal tombs can be done as quickly or slowly as you want 🙂
The Cheomseongdae Observatory and the National Museum are very close to here so keep that in mind when planning out your day.
If you having any questions please feel free to leave a comment 🙂

This blog is so helpful; thanks for all the info! I have 7 days from arriving in Seoul (22 April 17) to making my way to Busan. I am thinking of spending a 1-2 days at Jeonju and 1-2 days at Gyeongju before going to Busan. Do you have any other cities to recommend visiting or should I spend more time at each city I just named?
I haven’t been to Jeonju so I’m not too sure about that city. 2 days in Gyeongju seems spot on 🙂 If I had 7 days in Korea I wouldn’t try to visit too many cities as you don’t have much time. So for 7 days I would suggest 3 days Seoul, 2 days Busan and 2 days Gyeongju. Any reason for visiting Jeonju?
No particular reason for visiting Jeonju; picked it out of a hat. And heard about food being good there.
How do i get here from Busan? KTX or Bus? Help and Thanks
First of all, thank you for this blog – I’ve beed looking for information about Busan.
Do you have any recommendation for places to stay at Gyeongju?:)
I can recommend these 2 places: Gyeongju Happy Village Syeobul and GG Hotel.
thank you very much!
