Tumuli Park Gyeongju Reviews
Beautiful park filled with tombs Nov 18, 2013
Tumuli Park is right in central Gyeongju, in the middle of all the tourist hustle and bustle. It's full of tour groups, class trips, and Koreans taking their pictures. People come here not only for a nice stroll through the trees, but also to see the burial mounds. The tombs look like tall rounded hills and they house the remains of the old Shilla monarchs and many of their personal belongings, much like the Egyptian pyramids. Though not as impressive as the Egyptian pyramids, it's still worth the visit.
Like everything else in Gyeongju, it costs money to get in, but it's only 1500 won. And it's a beautiful park, even without the burial tombs. I found fall to be the perfect time to be there because of the changing leaves.
When you're finished in the park, you're in a prime location to see and do other things. To the north you'll find downtown Gyeongju and many traditional Gyeongju bread shops, and to the south you'll find many other sites and the not-to-be-missed ssambap restaurants.
