Gyeongju Summer Trip (part 9): The Pension Village Entrance
The Octopus and Suntubu Restaurant where we had dinner. This neighborhood is also famous for its varied selection of restaurants.
But interestingly, that IS the only convenient store in the village. We got to walk 3-km to reach this store, had the owner of the house did not give us a ride.^^
Waiting for the bus to Bomun Lake Resort. At the back, there was another construction in progress. Yes, Gyeongju seemed to build more and more touristy areas.
What I liked most about Gyeongju was the lanes full of trees in the middle of the two separate lanes. This is what -- I think -- differentiate Gyeongju with Seoul, for instance.
The very fact that no tall buildings were visible, and the very fact that trees were neatly planted along the lanes and major roads...well at least in some areas...were giving me a good time in Gyeongju.
We just got off the bus and walked towards the Bomun Lake Resort.
The sidewalks were shaded/canopied(??) with trees: another plus in Gyeongju.
I find this amusing. Teseum: Teddy (Bear) Museum.
Teseum market...(It's a good thing that it is not a mesum museum)ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
