Located in Gyeongju, Gyeongju Tavo Guesthouse is connected to a shopping centre. Gyeongju Bowling Center and Hwangnidan-gil Road are worth checking out if an activity is on the agenda, while those looking for area attractions can visit Blue One Water Park and Gyeongju World California Beach. Gyeongju World Culture Expo Park and Shilla Millennium Park are also worth visiting. Make sure you don't miss outdoor adventures like hiking/biking trails and ecotours, or hop on a moped for hire nearby and take a self-guided tour around Gyeongju.
Really warm welcome into a family home! Living area and room were homely, comfortable and spacious. Wifi works. A Union flag appeared on the coffee table soon after checking in :) Great information sheets provided to the main places you'd want to visit - much more useful than the info I got from the tourist info office and a Gyeongju hotel I stayed in the night before. I asked where I could get dinner locally. A prompt phonecall was made then was walked to a restaurant just around the corner to have real, non-tourist Korean food, and ended up having dinner with Mrs Lee. Lovely! The night before, Mr Lee asked if I wanted to go visit some places in the morning... at 6am (as I had an early train to catch). It was a great, fun experience in the still of darkness. Returned for breakfast; was so tasty (loads of gyoza and fruit) and made especially early for me... missing breakfast was not an option! Mrs Lee then literally threw me out the house and told me to walk fast so I wouldn't miss my train! (It's a 10-15 min walk from the station so convenient location.) It's these details that make this place so special! There is genuine care and such a personal, helpful service so that can try to see everything Gyeongju has to offer (a lot! I underestimated spending just 1.5 days here) and have a great, easy experience with a snapshot of Korean home culture. It's a shame my plans didn't allow me to stay longer than 1 night. I would definitely stay again!
