"Ancient City in Modern Korea" Kongju by DSwede
Kongju Travel Guide: 6 reviews and 41 photos
Kongju (do not confuse with Kyeongju or Gwangju), is a nice, quiet historical center in west-central Korea. It dates back to the Baekje Kingdom, about 1500 years ago.
Its a relatively small area and if you have your own transportation you can visit nearly everything in a long day.
The Songsanri Burial mounds are a historically important monument. But many foreigners may find them a bit dull if you've seen similar mounds before.
Otherwise, the Donghaksa temple and Gongsanseong Fortress are definitely worth a visit!
- Pros:Its just far enough away that you won't have to compete with (foreign) tourists.
- Cons:Transportation options to get here are rather limited.
- In a nutshell:If you have your own transportation you can visit nearly everything in this ancient capital in a long day.
