I reccomend you to visit here at night though there's a long line. Can't say no more this night view is awesome. It's faster to enter here using credit card than cash. Don't forget to stamp it on the travelers' booklet outside of Anapji. It's...More

It's a gorgeous area to walk around especially at night. We had a great time walking the field of flowers and then seeing the buildings lit at night reflecting into the pond. It was super crowded in Aug especially at night so if you want...More

Loved the scenery of this pond, beautiful especially at night. Would recommend to visit in the evening as its cooling and relaxing to go for a walk. Located near the Cheomseongdae Observatory.

No amount of sageuk watching could have prepared me for this magnificent view at Donggung Palace and Wolji Pond in Gyeongju! This place is seriously breathtaking after dark. We did the audio tour, which was very informative.

You want to go here. I was here during the sunset. It's maybe better to go there during the day and then during the night (darkness hours) - check the opening/closing time. The lights are very beautiful on the temples.

Important historical site which now has three open restored pavilions. There is a small walking track around the pond which has some lotus flowers. Apparently beautifully lit at night. Located across the road from the museum. Buses 10, 11 and others from the station or...More

A friend of ours showed us around Gyeongju and we stopped here for a little bit on the way to lunch. It's a pretty little area, lots of people were kinda just hanging out in the shade of the buildings for a bit as it...More

Visited after sunset, very busy with local people. Pedestrian flow seems to be clockwise, ie, view from the reconstructed buildings first, then walk around the garden area. W2000 entry, last admittance 21h30

Visit in the evening to capture the beautifully illuminated buildings and compound, and also the reflection on the pond. Unfortunately, one of the buildings was under restoration during our visit in mid Nov-16. The view might not be spectacular during the day time. There is...More

The sunset should be c 1745 so with some allowance for the lights, a proper visit and hour bus to Seoul, I would suggest the 2000 bus.
