For a wonderful collection of historic South Korea attractions, head for the remarkable coastal city of Gyeongju. This ancient capital city of the Silla Kingdom is sometimes described as a museum without walls, which makes complete sense once you start heading from one major ancient attraction to the next. Perhaps the best known place to visit here is Bulguksa Temple, a UNESCO-protected Buddhist temple from the sixth century. Here you’ll also find the Seokguram grotto and its striking statue of Buddha. Other major sights around the city include the Anapji Pond and Bomun Pavilion, the latter of which showcases the beauty of Korea in spring with its cherry blossoms.
