In Gyeongju you can walk among the burial mounds of kings long expired. It is said to be Korea’s most traditional city, a place with with infinitely more traditional sites than any other in the country.
Despite this my first morning of exploring was spend wandering amongst the high rise modern day Gyeongju. Mainly because I thought I would go where my feet took me and see what I came across.
In the afternoon I walked amongst the regal burial mounds or Tumuli.
