Travel Diary: Gyeongju
I was in Gyeongju on Saturday with my new friends Crystal and Rafaella. My friends are K-pop fans and they came all the way from Cyprus to see some of their favorite k-pop groups (Big Bang, Shinee, and G-Dragon). In Gyeongju they were holding the Hallyu Dream concert so our company helped arrange tickets for them and a tour during the day. We spent the day going to sites and ate at famous restaurants and snack stands like Hwangnam Bang (famous red bean bread, there are many imitators but the real one has a huge queue). It was Rafaella's birthday so we celebrated at a local cafe with a cake.
Gyeongju is a historical city and it has some good sights. It is definitely worth a day trip there.
