The spiritual experience is superb. The traditional early morning prayers, the drum beating & the bell chimes are music to ears. The silence and the serene Buddhas amidst the preserved flora & fauna create a enchanting experience for the meditator.

There is a city tour that brings you around however it is in korean but makes it easy and convenient to go to places of attractions since some of them are not walking distances. The staff are however very friendly and helpful.Since it is the only city tour, it can get booked out on weekends and holidays

There are loads of options to hiking in Gyeongju and you get some great cultural sites in them to boot. Also, the paths are good, even busy but still clean (i.e. no garbage!).

The city has done an excellant job of restoring and explaining the history of the Silla kingdom, the kingdom which eventually united all of Korea in the 8th century. Tombs, temples, museums, shrines, scenary. It has a bit of everything. Plan about 2 full days if you want to see it all.
