Course A (Lunch included)
Widely known as the first place where the sun rises on the Korean peninsula each day, Cape Ganjeolgot attracts many people who want to admire the wonders of a beautiful sunrise and participate in the annual Sunrise Festival held here on New Year’s Day. Visitors to the spot also like to admire the endless horizon and the magnificent scenery of the east coast. The cape is also known as a shooting location of famous Korean TV shows such as Flames of Desire, May Queen and Friend: The Great Legacy. In recent years it has emerged as a place where you can play an augmented reality (AR) game and enjoy a memorable experience with your friends, loved ones, and family.
Daewangam Park, which is one of the 12 Sights of Ulsan, has a pine forest with over 15,000 trees that are about 100 years old and creates a magnificent landscape.
You can smell the rich aroma of pine trees while walking along the well-established trail in the forest. Along the coastal walkway from the park to Seuldo Island, you can enjoy the beautiful views created by the wide and blue East Sea and oddly formed rocks.
Course B (Lunch included)
Gyeongju National Museum
Gyeongju National Museum is loved by visitors and residents alike as it houses numerous historical and cultural artifacts of the Silla dynasty (57 BC - AD 935). The museum recently went through renovation, and the galleries and the exhibition halls have taken on a new look. In addition to improving facilities for visitors' convenience, Gyeongju National Museum is making efforts to contribute to the community and re-establish its identity as a museum by making efforts to provide lifelong learning opportunities and improve management. As a significant cultural center, Gyeongju National Museum not only strives to preserve, exhibit, and research the rich history and culture of Silla, but it also strives to take a leap forward to become a cultural multi-complex center by promoting international exchange opportunities, social education programs, and a variety of special exhibitions.
Cheonmachong, formerly Tomb No.155 in South Korea, is a tumulus located in Gyeongju, South Korea. The name "Cheonmachong" means Sky horse tomb. This tomb was built in the style of Silla. The tomb was excavated in 1973 and is believed to date probably from the fifth century but perhaps from the sixth century CE. The tomb was for an unknown king of the Silla Kingdom.
Seokguram Grotto, the greatest masterpiece of the golden age of Silla, is a heritage property in which architecture, mathematical principles, geometry, religion, and art are collectively realized through its design and construction. Bulguksa Temple is a prime exemplar depicting Buddhist beliefs through architecture, manifesting an unparalleled architectural beauty difficult to find even in Asia.
