I've visited this place twice, both during nighttime, and it was beautiful both times. You can take lots of wonderful pictures here, but maybe not during the daytime. I may not come back to this place again unless I'm going with a different group of...More

A must visit destination if you are travelling in Korea. Beautiful view and scenery but was a bit cold during winter. The sun set at Anapji Pond is an unforgettable moment for your Korea tour. Fully recommended.

Visit here at least at dusk, and the building is even gorgeous at night, thanks to lighting reflection on the pond.

They reconstructed a couple of buildings here but there’s really not that much to see. Hopefully, there will be funding in the future to reconstruct the whole site like it once was.

Family friendly, even with strollers. The night scenery is really nice and is a must do while in Gyeongju. Price was okay at around 2$ per adults and it takes about 30min to 1h to go around. Easy to reach by bus from the trains...More

Many great photo opportunities at night when the pavilions are lit up. The view is stunning...just need patience as many others also go at night to enjoy the scenery. The good thing is, there is a circular path to follow so there isn't really much...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.
