Gyeongju-si is a sleeper. Practically unknown outside of South Korea and underappreciated at home, the city is surprisingly majestic. The main square is among the countryโ€™s nicest, surrounded by historic buildings and blessed with a Unesco-protected trinity column. The evocative central streets are dotted with beautiful churches, testament to the cityโ€™s long history as a bastion of the Buddhist church. Explore the foundations of ancient Gyeongju-si at the must-see Gyeongju National Museum, then head for one of the cityโ€™s many pubs or microbreweries, fuelled by the thousands of students who attend university here. Donโ€™t forget to try the seafood, especially the squid, Gyeongsang-do-eobok, reputedly the tastiest in the country.
